I would say no. It is difficult to damage a motor internally unless it is run at too high or low voltage or is mechanically overloaded or jammed. Usually they just go because they decide that it is a good time.

2001 subaru forester rear tail light moisture



Open the assembly and dry it. I would do so in full sun on a in low humidity and add a clear silicone sealant around the wire connection harness and around the rim of the light cover. The one around the light cover should be thin. If it is still happening, dry it again and place a small amount of baking soda in the assembly. It will settle to the lowest point and should absorb moisture.

2000 subaru forester/wiring for a trailer


The easiest way is to go to any RV dealer, or most Autoparts stores and buy an adapter. They plug in to your existing wiring harness under rear of vehicle and then you simply plug your connector in to it from there. Saves trying to figure it all out and cutting or splicing into your existing wiring and possibly causing problems later.

Attached test lamp to ground-side of battery. Take probe end of test lamp and touch anypart of the motor body frame. If the test lamp (DOES NOT LIGHT UP), you have an electrical short.

2001 subaru forester rear wiper motor replacement


Hi, it is pretty straightfoward (ahem, you know how this can go. depends on whether your wiper arm retaining bolt is frozen and snaps off the shaft or not). First, take a look at your fuse to make sure it is intact. If it is, just gently pop off all of the plastic trim covering the tailgate, and undo screws too as necessary. Then test the connector wires to be sure you are still getting power back there to the motor, I used a $4 test light that I got from AutoZone. Then use a large philips head screwdriver and 10mm socket to remove the whole dang thing.
