    Default wiper parts costs?

    I've got the dreaded wiper linkage problem, & have used the tie fix to get me through the MOT.

    The dealers are know saying that my 2003 needs full motor & linkage as the new linkage design will not suit the old motor, although theres nothing wrong with it.

    any comments & idea of pricing, they are presently quoting 170.00 for the lot, but i'd rather just have the linkage if poss.

    any alternative suppliers other than main dealers?

    cheers guys

    New one on me as well. As far as I knew it's just the linkage that needs replacing and the new linkage will fit the original motor.
