    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : Sri

    Engine : 2.2 direct

    Year : 2004

    Default Wiper linkage

    As its been such fantastic weather today whilst using my wipers they decided enough was enough and the rods popped off the linkage, I knew they had a previous fault with them as I'd noticed the rods had cable ties holding them together by the previous owner.
    So what I really need to know is which rods are the best to replace the original ones with ? I've seen a couple of sets on eBay but I've no idea of their quality so a shove in the right direction would be great

    These are what you need, better quality than the originals and much cheaper than fitting a whole new mechanism.

    Fitted the preface ones to my Signum and they are a nice tight fit and needed quite a bit of force to 'pop' them on.

    Getting the linkage out was a pain so in the end just lifted one end out to enable me to get to the ball joints.

    Well I ordered the rods off eBay on Monday morning and the new rods arrived yesterday and I fitted them in about 20mins but of a pig to get the main drive rod on as that one was the only one that hadn't popped off. I didn't bother taking the linkage out as there easy enough to do in situ.
    And WOW they make one hell of a difference
