    What does this fix?? My wipers are scatty on setting one they can randomly go at full speed then go back to super slow.

    And also their noise. They smash into the bonnet and into the pillar bit every time as if the motor is going too far both up and down.

    Not sure if this trick can fix this or if my issues are just the actual motor

    Yours sounds like its the motor had the same problem on my signum. The fix is for the linkage if it pops apart but like others have done the cable tie is a cheap fix but i stumbled across it and thought it might have been useful as another way to fix the linkage problem
