    Default Passenger wiper hitting bodywork

    Can the passenger wiper arm be adjusted so it does not hit the bottom of the windscreen and making a `slapping` sound when the wipers are working?...it's so bl**dy annoying, Especially with all this heavy rain we're having at the moment

    check the nut holding wiper on the grooved spline ,had a similar prob with my corsa found the arm was not tight on the spline. also you could always move the arrm up one notch on the spline .

    I dont know if Vectra's are like this but most car you can just remove the nut of the wiper give it a little tug (the wiper that is!) and reposition it on the spline - tighten the nut and bingo!

    This same thing happened to my veccy and the dealer changed the wiper linkage under warranty straight away. I think there is a known problem with the wiper linkage.

    The passenger side wiper used to bounce off the bottom of the windscreen, it was really annoying and only did it when the wipers were on continuously. It didn't do it on one wipe or auto.

    as above, just remove the nutcap, loosen the 13mm nut, prise the arm up off the spindle and set it where you want it to park...retighten the nut and replace the cap... easy job to do..

    Nice job.. But AARRGGHH!!!...

    Use a spanner or a socket..... 5 holes are for gripping not undoing nuts....

    just another sad tool freak here..
