    Default Windscreen wiper fault

    Hi can anyone help
    when i turn the wipers on on my vectra nothing happens unless i put them onto the highest speed ( no intermitent or slow speed) also they fail to self park. The rear wiper works fine.
    anyone got any ideas where to start?

    Common fault i think, wiper motors become faulty/intermitant on the C's. someone will confirm though. If not do a search think i read a thead the other day on this.
    Ow yeah by the way!!

    My 56 plate has just started with this problem works only in very fast speed but put it on normal and it struggles or comes to a stop half way.
    if this is a fault with the motor will it be sorted under the warranty at the dealers

    Unhappy

    Must be the season for it. My 07 plate has just started with exactly this same problem - OK on fast, but slower, slower, stop on the other speeds. They actually stopped midway across the screen in pouring rain on the M40 last night. I'm going to try the dealer/warranty route, whilst mindful of the windscreen horror stories elsewhere on the forums

    Well, mine went into VX yesterday to have the wiper motor seen to. All done OK under the warranty, no hassle and no broken windscreen!
    I was told by the mechanic that there is in fact, no need to prise off the cover under the windscreen, as the motor is accessed by a panel in the engine bay. Having said that, It does look like it's been disturbed though.

    Ok, Glad i'd searched this post as I'd not seen it before!! Same thing started on my 57 Plate Vectra around a week ago. Wouldn't work at all one morning, thought it was because it was near freezing and it was some sort of safety thing to stop the wipers getting ripped apart over a frosty windscreen!

    Wasn't so confident it was a safety thing when they wouldn't work during the recent snow blizzards!!

    Got it booked in at my local delaers, so from what i've read, it should be all sorted Saturday!!
