147 wiper arm hits bonnet!
My wiper assembly broke on Sunday. Black plastic bit that the shaft for the driver's side wiper runs through broke too close to the arm to fix. Looked it up on alfaowner and lots of people have had the same problem and had to fit a new motor/linkage assembly. Ordered one from shop4parts, which arrived this morning and was fitted within minutes -dead easy. They work, but there is a click when the wiper gets to the top of its travel and it seems to be caused by the wiper arm hitting the underside of the bonnet. On closer inspection, the output shaft on the new wiper assembly is about 7mm longer than the old one. I had thought from looking on here that 147 wiper assemblies were interchangeable. Do I need to buy new style wiper arms? Has anyone else had this problem? Help/advice appreciated.
