    i've done a search about this already and tried to use wd-40 for few days but it hasn't helped much at all especially whilst it's been raining past few days.

    when using my wipers they'll come up about 2 3 inches if that and then i need to push them down my self. so what's faulty exactly what do I need to buy?

    thanks :)

    A new windscreen wiper mechanism. Will cost about £70

    There's a "how to" guide on here somewhere, if you don't find it I'll have a look for it later.

    is that basically a new motor then? £70 from dealership or ebay second hand jobby? I'm not a DIY person :( so I'll be getting my mate who's an electrician to fit it for me.

    Hey, mine went the other day a right pain in this weather. I took it off yesterday and to be honest it wasnt that hard. Just a lot of plastic to strip off first from around the screen and ecu.

    nope its not the motor, its the linkage/spindels

    part number: U8E2 955 603 C I13 BRACKET

    is what it says on me invoice £65.67

    also order the wiper scuttle as its highly likely to break on you

    part number: USE2 819 403 A0 1C WATER DEFLECTOR

    costs £14.73

    had to replace mine a few weeks ago

    took around an hour to 90 minutes

    Sorry mate I can't tell you how much it costs because I haven't brought a new motor yet as I was hoping it would be a standard Bosch item.

    But as for it being the spindals and linkage:- That is what I initially expected but the RAC bloke said no so I just took his word.
