    Yep, and whatever they try and tell you do not let them convince you that you need a new motor as well. They may try and say that the new linkage won't fit to the original motor and you need a new motor - they're wrong, it's a mistake in the parts computer.

    The new linkage will fit just fine to the original motor. I've done it as well as numerous other members.

    Or maybe repair the old one, like I did. But mine didn't fail like most do, the failure mechanism was different and could be repaired easily.

    Default Cheers guys!

    Thanks guys. I phoned local Dealer in Llanelli and they wanted £97 for wiper linkage. What a ripoff!! I have fixed the problem with Cable Ties on recommendation of chap from work. Working perfectly so far and almost £100 better off.
