159 1.9 JTDM

Hmmm 159 window wiper?

Just less than a week since I bought my 159 (1.9 JDTM) I decided, that following the nasty white stuff has gone from the roads, I'd wash & wax the car. I noticed an area of pain under the trailing edge of the bonnet that had been chafed away. I then saw this was due to the drivers wiper arm having no clearence whilst at the top of its travel. This too was almost chafed in two! Took it straight back to the dealer who has ordered the new modified arm and window trims (that were both hanging off) as well as paint with a view to touch up for now before sending in for a proper paint job.Also I notice on very rare occassions that there is an odd 'knocking' seemingly coming from the front right side when going slowly round r/h bends at very slow speeds, more noticable on bumpy surfaces. I'm going to mention this to the dealer this weekend and see if they can find anything. Otherwise, great car so far!
