    Yep, not bad at all given that the linkage new is £70 odd and the motor even more i believe.

    Are you replacing just a broken linkage? I ask because no matter what a Vx parts dept. may say, you don't need the new motor to fit to the new linkage, the original motor will fit just fine to the new style linkage.

    i have a really loud noise when the wipers are going which sounds like the motor is on its way out but ive also been told it could be the linkage, so when he offered me them both for £40 i thought i may aswell change both

    God knows mate. Its like it has been bonded to the screen or something? I bought it with 11k on the clock I think, so it might have had a screen change before I had it.
