Back wiper- Remove or replace.

Hi Guys,

Hope you all had a blinding christmas!

I need some advice, My back windscreen wiper has been snapped off for the second time plus it doesnt even work so , should I replace it or remove the whole bolt?

It looks really ratty with just the bolt sticking out with the broken bits round it and was looking thorugh the old posts to see if anyone has flushed it off to look smooth.

Can anyone help ?

Cheers Guys

Mouna

Re: Back wiper- Remove or replace.

open the boot and unscrew all the scres on the back of the boot lid.

the platic will still be in place because it is heald with plastic things, firmly but gently pull the platic part off. you will then see the wiper motor unscrew the screws and it will pull out.

fill the hole in the rear windscreen with a blanking gromment or the like. and then put the plastic inner boot sckin back on, and put the screws back in.

jobs a good'un

hope that helps.

Cal

Re: Back wiper- Remove or replace.

I agree it does look good from looking at your picture . Thanks for the offer about the motor Rascal but what with the number of times the wiper has been broken off knowing my luck ill fit ur new motor then the b****ds will break it off again !!!

Maxim what did you use the cover up the hole in the end ?

I used a large blanking grommet first time around but this disintegrated over time. Its now covered with a small circle of blick vinyl

Re: Back wiper- Remove or replace.

vinyl? isn't that the stuff GAFFA TAPE is made of? hmmm.. lol

i'd say dewiper. a bit of rain-X on the back window and you needn't be too concerned with having a wiper. It is handy in winter to clean the salt and stuff, but its a very small price to pay for a smoother rounder butt

Blick Vinyl? Looks like I went all South African for a mo
Not quite the gaffa tape stuff - cut vinyl (same as the boo sticker stuff)
