    yeah,.. like they also tell you that you need to buy a new motor when their ar5e design on the wiper mechanism drops to bits and you purchase their re-designed system. Thieves

    Yes, they're pricy. They will be cheaper with the trade discount you get for being a full member on here.

    You just need 3 T-pieces and a Metre of the pipe to replace the leak-off pipes as nothing has to be removed to get to them other than the plastic engine cover.

    Warm the ends of the pipe in very hot water before you push them on to the (£5) T-pieces as they bend and break quite easily.
