Why is the first call always the dealer?!

Good news is that the 147 uses the same wiper set-up (arms, linkage, motor) as the GT, and there are dozens of both being broken on ebay, not to mention plenty more in car breakers around the country. Plenty spares to choose from....

Does the 147 have the same problems with wiper arms? My GT wore a nick out of the arm and a matching one on the bonnet at 20K miles..... The only reason I haven't fixed it properly is that the wear seems to have stopped!
