    Rear Wiper problem

    Am new to this so hope this is in the right section - apologies if its not!

    Recently bought a 1999 Astra Club 1.6 and have been having problems with the rear wiper which only clears the top half of the rear screen leaving the bottom half still wet.

    I have replaced the blade with a new one but that has not made any difference.

    Could there be something wrong with the wiper arm itself?

    Any help would be most welcome

    Thank you

    Check the spring in the arm. It might be worn / weak.

    Yep agreed defo the spring in the wiper arm. Go to Vaux and get a new one. Just explain to the parts department that you need a replacement spring.
    Its a jam thing

    Thanks guys

    Will try our local VX dealer for a replacement spring.

    Is is a fairly simple job to replace it?

    Cheers

    Cheers guys, mine has been doing that for the last 4 years since i got.

    Every time is wipes on does half the window and you get a crazy sound from it.

    Have you a part number?

    9130603 is the arm so the spring might be integral to it

    Spoke to my local VX dealer and they say you can't buy the spring on its own. Have to buy the complete wiper arm at a cost of £20.
