Windshield Wiper Wheelbox

Cleaned up my wheelboxes to reinstall and discovered the remnants of a rubber skirt-like seal on one and missing altogether on the other. Upon close examination I see that the drive gear is splined so I should be able to remove it in order to install new seals on the shaft at the top end - if only I can find something suitable. Anyone out there done this before? I am not about to dissasemble them until I know there is an available seal out there that works.

I've got the same issue and in the same boat so I'm anxiously waiting to see responses to your question!

I'm willing to disassemble my wheelboxes but only after I identify a source for that pesky little seal! BTW, I came across this article on disassembly that proves it can be done.... > MGA wiper spindle Seal < Unfortunately, the seal number referenced (17H5389) seems to be made of unobtainium.
