The starter motor always spins in the same direction as it has both a wound
stator and a wound rotor.  The wiper motor has a permanent magnet stator so
*does* turn in the opposite direction, but it doesn't matter (think about
it).  The early heater fan also has a wound stator so doesn't need to be
reversed, it has two black wires coming from it.  The later motor also has a
permanent magnet stator so it polarity conscious, it has one black and one
green/yellow wire.  The motor changed at the same time as the polarity so it
shouldn't be an issue, but if an early motor has been swapped for a later
one you would need to check, try it both ways, it blows with both, but
significantly more effectively the correct way than the incorrect.
