Wiper Links rubbed through Air con Pipe..

So my new toy arrived and I'm chuffed to bits with it... however it has 2 faults;

1:Air-Con doesnt work

2:Wipers Squeek like crazy

I thought I'd sort the wipers first as its the easier job... when I removed the cowelling under the windscreen I was amazed to find that a wiper link had been catching on an air-con gas pipe and had rubbed right through..

See photo....

So I am left with a couple of questions...

1: Has this happened to anyone else and how did you solve it

2: Does anyone have these air-con pipes to sell...

Strange one that - Never come across it or heard of it before! I now want to check mine!

Marco166 is breaking 166's so should have the pipe for you - PM him. May not be that expensive from Alfa? - Worth a call.

Good Luck.
