Default headlamp wipers n turbo guage

Hi folks, am new to this so I'm not sure if I'm posting in the right place, but here goes!

Have got a cracking '97 9000 2.3 Aero, with a couple of niggles.

The trubo guage on the dash doesn't work, it's stuck in the centre position, the turbo works very very well, but no guage.. any suggestions?

Also, the headlamp wipers have developed a life of their own. They shift about quarter inch when I switch on the ignition, but don't work with the wash/wipe as they should....

All suggestions and thoughts gratefully received!

Welcome to the forum!, First check your vacuum lines, seems like either something got disconnected or it broke, its not a bad idea to replace all the vacuum lines with silicone ones. There is a small plastic T pieces make sure its connected properly to the three vacuum hoses, one goes to the back of the engine, one goes to the recirculating valve and ones goes through the firewall and into and behind the dash, if that one is loose thats causing your problem, iv heard the hoses coming loose right behind the gauge in the dash, but i have no idea how to get to that, im sure some one else on here knows how to do that. And as far as the headlight wipers go, the motors seems to go after a while, if you really want you can replace the motor, but what purpose do they serve besides looking cool hah, hope that helped a bit
