Re: punto wipers

If you mean the linkage is broke then no(unless you cable tie them together but still break or you can try drilling & put screw or nut/bolt through as have seen this done)also its not a dealer rip off,Fiat sell motor/linkage as one unit,105.00

Re: punto wipers

Yup, I'll confirm the previous post. The plastic 'ball joint' type thingy on the linkage becomes worn and pops one linkage arm out. Fiat doesn't sell the small plastic part which is probably worth 50 cents so you have to buy the whole wiper linkage assy. If you are mechanically inclined a repair is very do-able as per previous post. I've done mine and it's been fine for over a year.

Re: punto wipers

Hi!

The SILENT WIPE system has been designed to replace the whole wiper system on the Fiat Punto Mk 2, because of the many reoccuring problems. A few customers have had Mk2 linkages actually breaking which is why we now manufacture a replacment system as Fiat charge 105.00 just for a new linkage! We have upgraded the system for more rigidity and used upgraded materials to try and alliviate all of these problems. Then we have added the two high quality wiper blades, as the better the blade rubber the better the wipe!

We have added this to your forum just so that if anyone does have these problems we can help! As you will see Dave (Sticky) has tried the linkage for us and recomends it. As you are all Forum members we are also offering it to you at a discounted rate. We have them available on ebay at the moment for 89.49 + p+p, but for Forum members we can offer it to you for a discounted rate 78.00 all in.

If you are interested either contact me via email sales@wipex.co.uk, check our website www.wipex.co.uk or call us during office hours at Wipex on
T: (+44) 01684 310028

We look forward to hearing form you!
