Re: Alfa 147 2.0 Lusso (51 plate)
I'm no tech-head, but mine is of a similar age and this was a problem I had. Try putting the rear wiper on intermittent, walk around to the back of the car and give it a shake to and frow. The grease they use seems to expire at a certain age.
That should free it, then its a case of using a 10mm socket to remove the rear wiper, take off the cover on the inside of the boot ( I think theres 4 screws and the rest just pop out), remove the motor with allen keys, take the cover off the motor, clean out the grease and replace.
It sounds tricky, but if I can do it so can you!
Mine was full of very dirty grease which I replace and have had no problem with since.
