    slow wipers

    Just noticed that my front wipers are running very slow in all speeds.Thought that it was due to the screen being so dry so wet it up and still the same.Would welcome any thoughts.

    The mechanism seizes, you'll need to remove it, clean it and regrease it. In the DIY guides sticky there is a guide to help you.
