wipers judder?!

I have a MK2 1.2 sporting and my wipers are acting very strange...

on mine i have 3 wiper settings first i can adjust with 4 extra speeds on a turning thing on end of wiper stick and the other 2 are your standard slow and fast. .....

on the first setting with the extra adjustable speeds the wipers go up fine then on way back down they kinda stick and judder slowly down anyone had same problem and how to fix this?

i thought was just the wipers sticking to windows but i lifted the arms up and it still does it then...but weird thing is the 2nd and 3rd wiper selections run fine?

hope you understood all that haha

Re: wipers judder?!

It's a common problem that should have been fixed under warranty. Fiat used the a lubricant that solidifes causing the wipers to judder. They replace it with different lubricant and it solves the problem. Your dealer will be aware of it, so push them to fix it foc.

If you push then I doubt they'll charge you. It takes half an hour for them to sort it and most Mk2 Puntos have been done already with no charge. If you go in at least pretending to know what you're talking about you'll be fine.

Best bet is to ring a local dealer and speak to them.

Re: wipers judder?!

hi fiat guru here,
They probably will charge you but not much at all, but if you want to try it we could tell you how,
Only need a philips screwdriver and a 25 torx.

Mine does it too, already changed the wiper blades as I thought they were the problem. I'll take it into the dealer then and smile sweetly

Re: wipers judder?!

all you have to do is take the two screws out from the black plastic (driver side and middle) lift that up as much as you can, then put something there to hold up (block of wood), Take the plastic motor cover off ,
with the cover cut the end off where its a lng straight flap jst cut off to get it back in much easier. Un clip the switch.
take the 5 x 25mm torxs out, now the top part will come off. DONT LOOSE THE SEAL.
then you will see two copper contacts on the top half, clean them and push them up a bit more, then clean all the orange colour (sometimes white) grease off the motor, once clean put it all back togetha, (do not need to re-lubricate what you cleaned.
