    what would be a good grease to put in the wiper motors for lubercation and such? Same with the switches to keep them moving smooth.

    With the early style top mount wipers the grease gets hard over time. Pull the assy off and take it apart. Easy to do. There is a gear to grease and the shaft drive. I use white lith spray on the drive and regular grease on the gear. Make a big difference. I would not use grease on switches. Pull them out of the dash and clean the piss out of them with ele parts cleaner. let them dry then use a little dry graphite spray on the moving part.
