    My rear wiper is behaving strangely. When you turn it on it makes its first sweep fine but when returning to its normal position it pauses twice at 60deg intervals. Anyone else seen this happen?

    cheers

    Is it on tight? Could it be that the bolt holding it onto the 'spindle' (for want of a better word) isn't on tight?

    Arvo, I had something similar, it came down to the wiper arm being bent the wrong way, so i bent it the other way and job's a good un.

    Ben i've had the exact same prob on my car but didn't think it warranted a visit to the dealers as im well outta garauntee even though it was really gettin on my tits when used cos it would take a full couple of extra juddery swipes to come to rest. Recently was chuckin it down up here in A/deen so left the intermittent rear wiper on for the length of the journey (took bout 1/2 hour) after a couple of minutes the timing became more regular and now it seems to behave itself when used as a single swipe which im used to doing.
    Hope this exercise sorts yours too!

    I have this problem on my car and was told it was water getting into the mechanism through the seals of the wiper.
