Re: newby

Not sure if the grand scenic shares the same wiper design as the scenic but if so, it sounds like one of the bearings has collapsed on the lever mechanism on the wiper arm itself
A picture would help confirm

If so, three options
New arm from renault
Repair kit off eBay

Scrapyard arm could fail next week
New arm expensive but will last
Kit about a fiver plus fitting, is simple job and should last as long as a new arm
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
