Warning 147 Windscreen wiper saga!

Hi there,

I have just bought a 52 plate 147 and was overjoyed with my new car, however Sunday night whilst overtaking a lorry on the M42 which was covered in snow my drivers side wipers cleared my screen on the drivers side, struck my wingmirror and ripped off the blade!

Luckilly I managed to pull over and sort it out but everytime I go over about 45 MPH the wipers again clear the edge of the screen and strike the wingmirror.

I have read the threads about the linkage, before I go and pay the ridicoulous prices for that all changing does this sound like the cause and is around 150 what I should look to pay?

Many Thanks in advance

Have you ckecked the nut under the wiper cover (it just lifts up)? I suspect its undone causing the arm to swing back further than it should.
