Hi everyone, I am still rebuilding my 79 Trans Am and putting the wipers back together.

I have a new wiper motor fitted, which I have thoroughly tested, and I need to confirm that I have connected the linkage correctly (the wipers are not on the car at present).

I have attached some photos to show my current configuration.

I am sure the driver's side has a small post to connect the additional rod ( as these are the concealed type, I believe ).

I would be grateful if an owner could check my configuration against theirs and possibly post photos.

I appreciate any help you can provide.

Hi, that would be great if you don't mind.

No probs waiting till Saturday, as the car has been off the road for over 20 years now!!

I appreciate any help you can provide.

Hiya, I have not been laid up all Xmas with the flu.

I’ll get on it this weekend.

While I’m here, Happy New Year & to you & all the forum members.

I hope you all have a Fab ‘24 in your Firebirds. 😍

I hope this helps.

Sorry, it’s so grubby in there, but it’s my daily & all the crap seems to get sucked or blown into there.😂

Thanks so much for those.

It has been confirmed that the linkage is correct on my rebuild.

Just one more request, if possible, please.

Is it possible to take a picture to show the driver's side ( LHS ) wiper where the extra bar connects to the little post - I think it has something to do with the parking of the wipers, although I'm a bit confused about how it works.

Thanks again, mate!
