The problem is caused by over-strong springs.
Some dude once dismantled his and tested the strength of the spring against a same-length Peugeot one and obviously the Alf aspring kicked it's ****.
It was something like twice as fierce, from memory (the guy wrote a piece in the AROC magazine at the time).
I think he found the same length springs from a weedier car (I only remember Peugeot - his missus just happened to own one) and being a lot weedier than the Alfa springs, they helped the blades guide over the screen better, ,without lifting at speed.
We need someone in the motor trade to find a same-length spring but with less strength and experiment with changing them. It's the springs that's the problem.
No bullets for Chaingun..
