    Default Wiper problem

    I have a problem with the wipers on my Signum, if its really cold, the wipers won't work for a little while, and tonight the wipers had been on auto all the way home, but just as I got near home they started being extremely slow.

    Would the above mean I need to replace the wiper motor? All other electrics were fine.

    yep the motor bushes are worn out....new motor, probably while you are at it the wiper mech arm bushes will also be knackered.

    Probably the cheapest fix is to get a second hand complete motor and mechanism.

    Ebay do a new mechanism for £50, new motor is £35 off there.

    Vauxhall brand new mechanism is £128+ vat and the motor is approx £80 inclusive so shop around!
