    Window wipers

    so the other day it was snowing, as everybody obviously knows.
    all of a suddent the wiper got stuck upright then again at the bottom.
    the thing is the two faster settings work fine. but the slow one (most used one) will only do a 45 degree wipe at a time so it will go up and stay up instead of going back down.
    do i need a new wiper motor ?
    The early bird might get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

    Sounds like you've been struck with the well known wiper motor problem.
    They seem to burn out/damage something in the intermittent wipe/self park section.
    Then only definite cure will be replace the motor. Try to source a good 2nd hand one or a pattern part one from a motor factors as the are fairly expensive from Vauxhall.

    Easy to swap over and around £35 to £40 for a 2nd hand one - got mine for £35 delivered and it is working fine.
