Wiper Linkage

Postby steveo » Wed Jan 19, 2005 11:37 pm

Hi all,

I have a 96 Gleneagles and driving home tonight I noticed that the wipers are squeaking coming from around the linkage area. I looked around the linkage and could hear the squeak but could not pin point it. The wiper motor is working OK but you can stop the wipers with your hands mif you grab them. Does this mean a new motor is required or new linkage or can it be re-greased? I am at a loss with this one as the noise is very irritating and can be heard in the car all the time. Is it worth stripping the linkage out and trying to clean up? The noise seems to come form near the N/S Arm in the scuttle panel but I could be wrong as it was very windy and it sounds like a component is working aginst metal/plastic. Sorry to be so vague on this.

Any thoughts would be most helpful
