    Default Window wiper linkage

    Hi all

    The passenger wiper on the wife's Vec has stopped working. I am guessing the linkage has gone. Is there a how 2 for this and is it easy to do? What price will I be paying?

    If not how much at the local garage?

    Cheers guys.

    Ok a bit of an update on this. With the help of KeefyB, managed to get it cable tied so the quick fix is done. However could not get the wipers of the spindle, not sure if there is a trick to it or its just a case of persuasion to get them off.

    But managed to get our hands under the scuttle tray and cable tie the joint, hopefully it will last a while.

    Anyone know how to get the wipers off? As I will need to when I get the new linkage.
