    Omega Windscreen Wiper Stalk

    Wondering if any one can help me.

    Seen a few Omega windscreen wiper stalks on ebay.

    They have an intermittent speed adjuster thingy on.

    Will one fit my 2000 Astra, and more to the point will the intermittent speed adjuster work?

    Has anyone on here got one fitted or something similar?

    Cheers

    When I looked into this I was told that the MK4 Astra uses the multi timer for the intermittent wipe.

    Multi timer? Does this mean that basically the faster you're travelling the faster the wipers go?

    The multi timer is just a small ecu on the car that controls a lot of the systems on the car, doesn't change the wiper speed

    A omega stalk could probably be wired up if you bypassed the multi timer completly

    Cheers autosparks.

    Was only going to do it if it was a direct replacement.

    The Vx preset intermittant speed seems way too long to me.

    Really miss the auto wipers I had on my clio oh well.

    You can make them fit,but TBH a VW Programmable wiper relay is a better option.

    Or the Rain Sensor pack, but not cheap, and a bit random.
    This is for fitting to VectraB but AstraG is just the same apart from gettign the fusebox out.

    I've put the programmable relays in all my Cars.
