    Any other issues with them? Probably need a new wiper motor.

    I had the same about a year ago. It was the motor and I replaced it myself thanks to the how2's on here.

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : 3.0 V6 CDTI

    Year : 2007

    I had the same problem, I had fitted a set of flat wipers that had a little 'ramp' on the top to press them to the windscreen; it had been a little windy and I had been travelling on the motorway.
    I fixed mine by removing the wiper arms, removing the rubber edging from the panel under the windscreen, slightly lifting the trim panel and then loosening/retightening the nut on the top of the motor connection.
    The short of it was that the increased pressure cause the nut to loosen and then tighten again afterwards when the wipers were vertical. I also changed to standard wipers
