    Default Another linkage failure

    Well I was driving back from Pompey last night and the windscreen was a bit mucky so decided to give it a bit of spray as you do and they stopped mid-screen

    I pulled into the next services on the M3 and pushed them back out of the way. Luckly i have at home a wiper linkage from a 2007 Vectra that i shall be fitting (hopefully) when i get home today .

    You should have seen me packin it all the way home hoping and praying that it didn't rain

    I think vx should recall as I see this as a safety issue. Happened to me but again thankfully was dry weather. It could happen in a flooded motorway scenario.
