Re: Alfa GTV Wiper trouble

This is a fairly common problem, and is one of those things that the Alfa pixies may fix if you just ignore it..

You can help them by cycling the wipers from intermittent to full speed a few times.

I am sure someone will be along shortly to tell you about lubricating something somewhere, but this fixed it for me!

Re: Alfa GTV Wiper trouble

I had this problem as well and they would not do the full movement until the last turn. Taking it to bits and a metal part of the mechanism which tracks its movement had broken. You have to buy the whole unit tho to replace it. Mine was a 2001 but the new one i bought has been slightly changed and hopefully will be better. Somepeople say that grease gets on the contacts and can cause this also.

Re: Alfa GTV Wiper trouble

Most of them are due to poorly soldered joints, mine cured itself
