Hi,

I hope you can help me in determining what this is:


I found it while replacing the thermostat. It was just lying there next to the thermostat cover, not connected to anything.

Still looking.  Haven't found anything with that part number in the '84-'87 parts manuals yet.

looks like the cover that covers the test terminals on the wiper motor.

Interesting.  The part number doesn't come up anywhere that I can find.  Perhaps it's just a long discontinued part that has been wiped off the system.

Jep, that is it. It fits on the wiper motor. Thanks for your help.


Does it have any use when it is connected or can I just leave it? My wiper seems to work just fine without it.

I always thought it was just a cover, but the pic in the FSM, calls it a suppressor, so it probably does help suppress some of the electrical noise from the motor, which might be heard in your radio system.

Maybe newer/older or different vehicle that interchanges?
