We're happy to report that he is very, very excited! He had purchased a mono-wiper modification kit, which Reggie installed. Installation was made much easier due to the fact that the engine is still out of the way. ;) Reggies MotorWorks | Repairing BMW, Audi, MercedesReggies MotorWorks | Repairing BMW, Audi, Mercedes Next on the list will be to tuck the wires.

Upon opening the casing surrounding the wires, he found this...severed wires: Reggies MotorWorks | Repairing BMW, Audi, Mercedes Both the driver and passenger sides were in need of repairs: Reggies MotorWorks | Repairing BMW, Audi, MercedesReggies MotorWorks | Repairing BMW, Audi, Mercedes Reggie stripped the wires to expose enough to be able to solder both ends together: Reggies MotorWorks | Repairing BMW, Audi, Mercedes Just a close-up to demonstrate how the wire stripping tool works: Reggies MotorWorks | Repairing BMW, Audi, Mercedes Once heat shrink tubing is put on the wires, and the ends are twisted together, our dear friend flux is applied: Reggies MotorWorks | Repairing BMW, Audi, Mercedes Then the wires are soldered: Reggies MotorWorks | Repairing BMW, Audi, Mercedes Heat is applied to the heat shrink tubing covering the newly soldered wires, and voila! The tailgate is back in working order! Reggies MotorWorks | Repairing BMW, Audi, Mercedes As usual, we'll be back with more next week! Have a great weekend!
