    Wiper arm

    My drivers side wiper arm decided to give up on me this morning the clip holding the wiper blade has snapped

    Can you replace the clip or is it a new arm? If its a full new arm does anyone have any idea how much an arm would cost?

    I would love to replace the lot with aero but funds won't allow!

    Really? Looking at the arms fitted there looks to be no way for them to be removed

    Well I can't really wait so I'm getting a new arm tomorrow

    Glad I'm not alone!


    Yeah I'm glad it happened as the missus was dropping me off at work and not when she was on the way home from her work place otherwise she would have been in the sh@t! Atleast she could come back home and get her car

    as i said in the first post i cant really afford to at the minute so i will be sticking with just buying one wiper arm at £37 rather then two arms and wipers for over £100
