Re: how do i make my wipers run smooth?

I have the exact same problem whith my mk2! Itīs very annoying . But I cheked whith my Fiat service, and they told me itīs a very common problem on Puntos. And the only thing that helps is to spray the electonic contacts which goes to the wipers. Iīve done it three times now but it keeps comming back after a while. Does your wipers run smooth after a few minutes? Mine does!

Re: how do i make my wipers run smooth?

This is a common problem it seems on most punto's. I spoke to someone at local fiat garage and they said it was the grease being to heavy causing a bad contact. Check the forum though as I'm sure I remember a thread where it described in detail how to fix the problem (no haynes manual required)

Re: how do i make my wipers run smooth?

Yep same here.

Buy a few lengths of blades from the local car shop at a few pounds and replace the front blades every 6weeks or so.
And replace the cardrigde every year or so

Re: how do i make my wipers run smooth?

I had a problem with my Punto HGT, the wiper motor had to be changed, the old one was just not up to the job - wipers juddered across the screen. Was told by the dealer that this was covered by a Fiat "recall"

That's correct fatboyslimfast, this happened to me a couple of years back now, my missus had a 51 plate Punto GO!, and the wipers started juddering. I changed the wipers but it did not work so I took it back to Fiat who informed me that it was a known fault with the motor (Something about the grease in the gears being too thick), anyway the motor was replaced under warranty.

As I have an 02 HGT I asked the service guy if they were recalling all Puntos so that I could get mine done, he said that Fiat did not know which cars had the dodgy motors and as it would cost a lot of money to recall every single one they were just relying on people to come in and report the probelm, then they would fix it.

Try Champion wipers, they might judder at first but are excellent wipers. No smudging or screeching.

Re: how do i make my wipers run smooth?

I have my car at my local Fiat garage for the moment to change the whole wiper kit (I suppose wipermotor). Because it doesenīt work after several attempts to fix it. But itīs on the warranty
