Do your rubbery flaps stick out when it's raining?
I have had this problem since I got my 156. Does anyone else have the same thing? I think it could affect 147 drivers too....
This morning was a fine Yorkshire mid-May day. Dark clouds, bouncing rain, 3 degrees C, ice warning on, and I had my wipers on constant speed (second click down). There is a rubber flap around the base of the stalk where it protrudes out of the steering column. When I am on constant wipe or high speed wipe, the flap sticks out at the top and I have to poke it back in. It doesn't happen on intermittent as the stalk is not down far enough. (I have the bazza rain sensor option - i.e. when it's raining I switch the wipers on by myself).
Anyone else got this bother with their flaps??
