1965-1967 Beetle Windshield Wiper Shaft Restoration Kit - OEM Number(s) (111-998-161,111-998-161-A)

Prevent expensive wiper motor replacement by replacing defective wiper shafts with our Wiper Shaft Restoration Kit.

If your 1965-1967 VW wiper arm shaft binds up, your wiper motor will soon burn itself out trying to turn the frozen arm. Our kit has everything you need, including new left and right side wiper shafts and all necessary hardware.

  •  Includes Left and Right Sides
  •  Wiper Shaft Grommets
  •  Wiper Shaft Caps, Circlips and Washers

Most wiper pivot shafts fail due to age, seal damage and lack of lubrication. Factory specs recommends lubrication every 90 days.

Tech Tip: Wiper shaft lubrication is accomplished by removing the wiper arm, gently removing the plastic seal, and applying a few drops of oil where the shaft protrudes from the brass barrel. Switching on the wiper motor with the arms still removed, and applying a few more drops will ensure full and proper oil penetration.
