Re: wiper arm/motor broken
happened on my 2001 147, Simonstone alfa (Bristol) are saying £330 to re fit all new kit (motor, linkage, Blades etc.......) What a crock of sh*t, just cause they dont make the cr*p old part any more, also think the garage did it when fixing a leak which turned out to be the windscreen (cant prove it tho, scum garage never go there). Been looking for someone breaking a 147 to nab the old part as no way i'm parting with over £300 of hard earned, for a job i can do myself in about 30mins, came appart really easy. Plastic design will always snap by the looks of it no wonder Alfa changed it, personally think they should admit their error and help us all out when replacing. Found a garage that breaks Alfa's and told it is the first thing they sell on all breakers as so many go!! Will try and get a full kit off a newer model rather than replace cr*p with cr*p, does it still fit the same scuttle pannel + holes??? so if any 1 knows of one going please give us a shout, rather give my money to anyone other than Alfa SCUM at the dealers.
