hi there I'm a newbie and was wondering what could be the problem with my wipers cause I have only one speed no matter what the setting(inter, 1 ,2) so was wondering if anyone has had that problem before and maybe what it could be? I have just purchased an 86 model deisel turbo and am quite happy with it but a few lil things need to be fixed and this is one of them .. thanks

The 3 peeds are acheaved by switching resistors in line with the motor, the resistors are in the air duct just in front of the fan. You must have a short between the wires somewhere along the loom between the switch and the resistors. This some times happens when an untrianed person trys to fit an air con. Eric.

what would be the best course of action to correct this? do it myself or get an auto electrician to do it? and if I was to attack it what would I do?

Sorry I made a mistake when I replied, I had misread it as the heater, but the wipers are similar. With the wipers you have 4or5 wires going into the wiper motor from the wiper switch, if you unplug the loom from the wiper motor you can test the ccts with a test lamp, one pin in the loom plug will have 12 volts on it with the accesory switch on. one will be a permanent earth, the others should have an earth in turn as you rotate the wiper switch, if that is all ok, you may have a stuck or broken 3 rd brush in the motor.
