[TR] Wiper Motor Brush assembly

I have successfully carved the " ears" from a scrap of PC board.
Didn't lose the spring, but I suspect you could make a suitable substitute from the spring inside a retractable ball point pen.

Or buy some spring wire and make one from scratch. I've done it in the lathe, but you could probably manage with a slow turning drill and a nail or similar for a mandrel. Its best not to try to hold the wire in your fingers, it can cut you pretty badly. So use a scrap if wood or similar to guide the wire as the drill turns.
