    Angry Wipers have stopped working

    Hi guys,

    I have checked trough the search function and couldnt find anything relating to a fault which really had me 1. concerned, 2. really really annoyed.

    I was on the M58 motorway driving home at about midnight on Thurdsay night, it was raining heavily, and my wipers started to judder, then the wipe function went very slow and eventually stopped working when i was about 15 miles from home. I pulled over onto the shoulder, and waited about 40 minutes, they eventually started to work again albeit slowly and jumpy, and i got home...........late, and not a happy chappy.

    The rear wiper works fine, when i use the fast wipe function it goes very slow and jumpy, the normal speed is ok then goes slow and jumpy, and the intermittant function works fine once or twice then goes slow and jumpy. Then nothing but the rear wiper works.

    I still need to contact Vauxhalls to have the issue corrected, but before I go in to the stealership, and Im curious to know if any of you fine people have had a simmilar fault before I go in all guns blazing as it where.

    thanks.

    Got to be the wiper motor, same happened on my '07 model about 6 months ago. Changed under warranty but took a few days for them to get hold of one.

    Cheers guys, I picked it up from Lookers Vauxhall in Bootle (Liverpool) today, they replaced the wiper motor, they replaced the clutch and flywheel (after my constant complaining about severe clutch judder and its only done 5k), they also replaced the faulty outside temp sensor and both leaky front fog lights.

    The only downside, was collecting my car from a back street where it was "dumped" by the mechanics and finding two big chips of paint missing from my front bumper.

    The staff go home at 5:30pm, and theres no one to report damage too!

    Repairs and time i was impressed with, damage to car not so happy about, has anyone up in Liverpool had experience with Lookers in Bootle?
