Wipers not working on first setting

Hi all,

My mk1 punto's wipers aren't working properly. They don't work on the first setting but work on the other ones. What would be causing this? I'm worried that it's only a matter of time before the whole wiper system goes!

Money is pretty tight too so will I be looking at a big bill to get this sorted?

Re: Wipers not working on first setting

It might be the contacts inside the motor need cleaning. Search Fiat Forum for wiper motor instructions.
