Wiper Linkage Question


I'm just a bit confused about what I need to buy to fix my wiper problem on my 147(03). My windscreen wiper has gone a bit haywire and having taken it to bits I seem to have found the problem (see the photo):

My question is do I need to buy a motor and linkage kit or a linkage push rod kit??

Also, how much force do you need to apply to remove the wipers themselves?

Thanks for you help,

the motor linkage kit will do,and you should always remove the wipers via the proper tool to prevent any brakage,these tools are available from the likes of machine mart etc,its just a small puller

Common failure - Alfa has redesigned the part. Unfortunately they don't supply the linkage without the motor.....which means an unnecessary expense.....

Where abouts in the country are you? We re-inforce the second hand ones we sell with metal so they never break again.
