Front wipers banging at the top
Posted 05 September 2008 - 02:04 PM
I took it into the ford garage and they told me that cheap wipers donít fit properly on my car so they fitted new ones, which cost me. They worked for a few months but the problem has just come back again.
I'm now completely stuck as to why it does this and would appreciate any help on fixing this.
I have a 54 reg fiesta LX model
Thanks in advance

Ford fitted the wipers and they werenít banging for a couple of months and no one has touched them since, but if you could tell me how to do it id appreciate it as well.

What metal bit? Any chance of some pictures so we can see what the problem is.
He means the metal support which is situated on both sides of the rubber blade, it's "sunk" into the blade in a slot on either side and the actual wiper arm normally grips the metal support in about 6 positions along the wiper blade length. Normally on the cheaper blades this works it's way loose, sometimes there are cut outs in this metal support which should sit on moulded areas on the blade!
