147 wiper linkage problems
Anyone ever had problems with their wipers, specifically the drivers side? I've noticed the wiper seemed loose so I had a look a it hoping that the nut just needed tightened but on close inspection have noticed that the whole thing appears loose under the plastic scuttle panel. I've managed to get the two wipers off and the passengers side black plastic scuttle panel off but I can't get the driver side trim off! Any advice on how to get the drivers side off? I know it's on similar poppers to the passenger side but I can't shift them and I'm frightened on breaking it. I'm assuming that my problem is that the linkage is knackered? If anyone can confirm this I'd be grateful.
Whilst I'm on here does anyone have a 147 breaking that could supply this part, plus the little black plastic plugs that blank the hole to the screw that holds the trim on near the A panel and both the black plastic covers to the wiper arms that cover the nuts to fix them to the rack!? I broke/lost the ******' lot whilst trying to get in there!
Seriously unhappy with this car after it getting over £400 lavished on it for its MOT last Friday! It makes the 166 running costs seen almost frugal lately.
