    Default Do I Need The Bits The Dealer Wants To Sell Me??!!!

    Just got my signum 3 months ago & wouldnt you know it my wiper linkage has failed. I've spoken to a main dealer who says I need to replace the linkage & the wiper motor, & an independant who says I just need to replace the linkage. Has anybody here followed the how 2 posted on here & did you have to replace the motor too?

    Many thanks for any help you can give me!!

    The wiper linkage is a common failure unfortunately. Mine was done under warranty a couple of years ago. So far as I can remember the motor was fine in my case, just the linkage was changed

    This is a link from the shop I ordered mine from. He was the Indipendant who said I didnt need a new motor so I ordered off him. Any shop who say I dont have to spen more money with them than I need to is OK in my books!!
