    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.

    well worth doing you might want invest in a decent wiper arm puller, saves a lot of grief
     
  4. I did mine a while back and sadly destroyed the plastic trim, and done my mates today and unfortunately cracked his screen, so be veryyy careful as i am learning from my mistakes,,, oh and heat is very handy when getting the seized spindle out....
