    Default 1 1/2 Hrs later & One Vec C How to !!!

    Following on from this Thread
    http://forum.vectra-c.com/showthread.php?t=55714
    And thanks to SteveH for this How To
    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?p=188355

    I now have a Shiny new wiper linkage fitted, Cost was £70 from the Stealers...

    Awkward bits were the Scuttle There's a defo knack to it, Once you have done it a second time will be a doddle (Hopefully, I will never have to ) & removing the linkage that attaches to the motor, As it turns whilst your trying to undo the 13mm nut Putting the motor out of park..
    So once all assembled & roughly lined up,(without the wipers fitted) I ran the wipers so that the motor could then settle back at a true park, I then carried on assembling & fitted the scuttle & wipers Etc.

    My Drain hole was also blocked, So another worthy job done

    Cheers All.

    I did one of these on my old Cav as the arm kept popping off the end. The design doesn't look that much different.

    You'd have thought they would have made them better by now!

    You think Vauxhall would have changed this design by now as they were using this naff plastic bollock joint on Mk2 Cavs and Astra's, as they were forever popping off!


    Snowman, you got your ears on?
