Just in case, asking my question here, too: Wiper Motor Parts

I’m a translator stumped by a colleague’s request for help with French automotive terminology. I’ve been researching and this term does not seem to exist:

“pastille de respiration.” What could it possibly be in English?? It seems from the original text snippet that this would not be a required part of the wiper motor. Please HELP as quickly as you can! Thank you!

pastille de respiration is: Another term in the test of wiper motor connectors.

Thank you and, yes, but what part is it that is being tested in the wiper motor connector assembly?!

The wiper motor connector itself. Either that or the wiring connector from the vehicle that connects to the wiper motor. What vehicle is being worked on? Year, model and make.
