147 Wiper Arm Repair (Cheap as Chips)
Dear Fellow 147-ers (or indeed any other Alfa with the same wiper assembly!)
I know it's probably been done to death already but I recently suffered the dreaded mis-behaving wobbly wiper arm.
Of course my first reaction was to check AO forums for a remedy but could only find ones that involved either visiting a dealer or buying new for DIY fit, but thanks to those who posted their experience I decided to have a go myself. Being a tight-fisted bu££er I fixed mine for the cost of 2 75mm hoseclips from B&Q - less than £2!!!
I have just uploaded 5 photos into my gallery for anyone to look at. Is this the right place for them? Dunno but they're there anyway.
Just waiting for Admin approval of photos. When they are up I'll post again explaining what I did in more detail. Believe me, I used some screws from my garage, a bit of glue and 1 hoseclip. All in all it took less than 1.5 hours including a drive to B&Q and back!
Hope this is of use to someone - it's nice to be able to give something back for a change!
Toucha my car... I smasha your face
I should have gone. I didn't go. I went. I came back. Now I'm here. That's it. There is no more. Now I must go again.
