I have an M reg astra and I am having problems with the front windscreen wipers. The only work when they feel like it. The rear wiper works all the time with no problems. I have read that the main problem with windscreen wipers was the motor going but on all the posts that I have read people have problems with where the wipers sit. My wipers (when the do decide to work) always return to the correct position and do not stop until they have returned to right position (if I turn them off). The problem is that they simply will not start sometimes (once they have started unless I turn them off they continue to work). When they dont work I can still hear a click on the intemittent setting as if it wants to work but the wipers just dont move.
Could this be the motor or possibly a loose wire somewhere?? Any help would be appreciated as I dont have the money to put it into a garage ATM.
