    confused Wiper Blade Issue

    Hi Guys,

    Sorry if this has already been answered before, but I did have a look at other posts. I swear.

    Yesterday I decided to put my front wiper blades on. However the driver side was iced to the screen. Although it was froze it released on the 2nd window pass.

    Everything was fine then until this morning. While defrosting the car I noticed the wiper blade just stopped working. However if I pulled the blade up, the motion of the wiper arm worked fine. When I put the wiper back into position it was struggling to pass over the screen. Any ideas?

    If Ive broke a part, any idea how much its gonna cost me?

    Cheers Guys

    Craig

    It might have come loose on the spline. I have as yet not had to remove mine. But I presume that if you prise the cap off the wiper arm there will be a nut that you might be able to tighten a little. The drag/friction of the blade might be causing the blade to "stop" but when you lift it off the screen there is no resistence.

    Thanks mate.

    Think that is the cheapest option at present. Hopefully you're right and just needs tightening up.
