Thumbs up Re: Fixing Juddering Windscreen Wipers

Worked a treat, previous owner told me the garage could not fix it. Only cost me 2.50 for the grease and an hour. Thanks very much.

Re: Fixing Juddering Windscreen Wipers

Hi, I have just joined the Fiat Forum, as I am forever seeking advice/knowledge! so I thought it was about time to say thanks on this occasion to A1nt (i think it is? can't find it now :-( ) for explaining how to sort out the very same problem I have just had, the juddering wiper bldes in intermittent . . . and IT WORKED PERFECTLY. Having asked around about where (if there is one?) the wiper relay was, I looked on here and thought give it a try, as i had the very same clicking sound, just like a relay! I had one friend inform me that the power steering/ECU was under the steering column . . and said it would be doom and gloom?!! Anyway, there it was DONE :-) Not sure if I had a lump in my throat . . or a lump in my shorts! Nice one thanks. I can now put all my dash/steering covers back on after searching last night with a torch trying to locate the ~@+*&%$ click clicking sound.

Re: Fixing Juddering Windscreen Wipers

@SPF I did the same and got a new wiper motor. Fitted it tested ran for 2 days then judderd again after 4 days they just stoped working, funny how it starts to rain when you have no wipers. Well I sorted it out seems the conecting pins/blades on the connector were not connecting so I twisted them all clockwise very slightly to make a better electrical connection with the connector. Been good for months now. Hope it helps.
