Hello all

I've just been out to clear all the frozen hail off the car. As I have to leave the house at 0400 for work.
I just noticed the drivers side wiper arm is raised at the joint, basically where the spring is. It's now in contact with the bonnet. And over sweeps off the drivers pillar. !!!

Hoping something is just frozen :-((

Any ideas ??

Was it a snapped linkage under the scuttle?

Well it worked a treat!!!!
I just flattened a piece of copper tube. Wrapped it around the end self tapped it the bar and filled all the gaps with epoxy resin.
The only problem was those nasty little plastic pressure studs on the scuttle. They did snap some of the mounts off that they attach to on the underside of the scuttle. And one of the nuts that are fixed to the bulk head came out so a nut and bolt
Had to be used to refit the motor and linkage.

But it seems really strong and works perfectly.

So happy days :)))

Good stuff mate, glad you sorted it. I bet it'll never go again now.
