    Slow wipers!

    The wipers seem to be struggling on my Avant. It's intermittent and started a couple of weeks back. This morning the were very slow bouncing a bit on the screen and the 2 faster speeds had no effect.

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    Mine did the same and got worse and worse until they stopped dead!

    Took it to Audi and they fitted a new linkage - all under warranty!

    It happened on my B5. Water was getting in below the windscreen and causing the linkage to seize. Taking things to bits and using lots of plusgas sorted it.

    Thanks for the replies chaps I've got it booked into Chester Audi next week. I don't want them packing up altogether on the motorway in the rain, which, according to "sod's law", will happen!
