    Default Wiper problems?

    Any of you guys had problems with your wipers?

    Fitted the blades a few weeks ago and driving up the M6 last night, they were stopping mid wip and studdering across the screen in all but top speed mode.

    This I thought was because I was at motorway speeeds...but even when I slowed down a little they're still shuddering or worse still stopping mid wipe.

    I'll try my old wipers again...but has anybody had any problems.

    I assume you mean the new vx aero blades. I was driving up the M1 last night, no problems apart from that damned traffic and attrocious weather.

    This problem is back again....only now the wipers have completely stopped.

    Any ideas what it could be or is it to the dealers first thing....

    Stalk seems to working fine, wipers were intermittent at first not they've completely stopped.

    Checked fuses etc but no joy.

    It may be a broken wiper rack.. not at all uncommon..

    you can check for any movement in the rack by looking through the drivers side underbonnet scuttle grille..there may be a link floating in the breeze....

    if the motor isn't working, or if the rack is shot, then off to the dealers for you..There have been two later editions of the rack to cure wear in it's joints..VX will be aware of the problem..

    Doesn't seem to be the rack...wipers are rock solid on the screen and looking through the scuttle panel all seems well.

    Wiper stalk doesn't activate washer, headlight or screen, however rear wiper is working fine.

    Heading to the dealers this morning...if it stops raining!

    Just went out to the car...and ****** me if they're not just working again.

    If I go to the dealers they'll think I'm mad!

    Has anybody had any similar intermittent problems?

    I had problems with my wipers, they were juddering but also made a cracking noise. They only did it in the wet though, when I put it in on a dry day they didn`t think to spray some water on the window so when I picked it up they hadn`t fixed it !! Had to go back the next day and demonstrate how to simulate rain with a hosepipe for them !! It was the weak linkages that were shot ..

    Mine seem as strong as they have ever been...haven't heard any cracking yet...and would have expected the linkages to have been upgraded/sorted on an MY06?

    I'll keep an eye on it over the next few days...just a bit disconcerting when the weather is so **** at the mo...80mph on the M8 in heavy isn't what I would call fun with no wipers!

    Wasn't the linkage..went out for a wee drive and they stopped again.

    Did a u turn and straight to the dealers who fitted new wiper motor there and then.
