Re: Wiper issues on a 147
I had a look at the wipers on my 147s, (one facelift, one pre-facelift) and the plastic housings for the wiper spindles look the same. However, the wiper spindles look almost 10mm taller on the Facelift. I haven't measured them, and I know that because the old style wiper arms have covered nuts they look taller overall, but the gap between the base of the wiper arm and the top of the (plastic) spindle housing definitely looked bigger.
I'm only thinking out loud here but wouldn't that reduce the stress from the sprung wiper arm?
I suppose thinking along those lines that the low profile aero wiper blades should help as well because the end of the wiper arm is closer to the windscreen.
What do you think?????
