For Sale — Wiper Motor Ground Strap

FOR SALE: Wiper Motor Ground Strap

If your wiper motor sometimes doesn’t turn on, or turns off by itself, and you have to bang on the dash to get it running again, you could be suffering from a faulty ground strap. Ground straps are made of brass, which, given time, oxidizes. And, over the years, the securing nut usually has been removed, then reinstalled many times, resulting in a twisted or even broken ground strap. The solution: buy a brand new strap and be assured of a good ground. Finding that this very necessary part was unavailable, I have manufactured them for the VW Community. I have a good supply on hand. They are identical to the original straps in composition, configuration and thickness. My personal Beetle is a ’67, but these ground straps will fit ’69 and earlier Beetle and Karmann Ghia (and some other applications) 6 volt and 12 volt wiper motors (with some rare exceptions). See the photos for placement of the ground strap. For orders larger than 5, I offer a significant discount.

Hello, I'm Jay Salser...

I’ve been driving and working on VWs for over 37 years. In fact, I raised my family in these cars. Now, I’m 75 years old and enjoy VWs as a hobby. The ’67 Beetle always has been my favorite year.

  1. Brilliant! Thanks, Jay, for providing this part — that I thought was required to be munched and gnarly looking!

    • It’s funny. Long ago, I removed my old radio and the wiper arms quit working. I had to re-ground probably due to this faulty part. Kudos to Jay to bringing this to the market for the rest of us.
