Unhappy Wiper Clonk

Hi All,

I put my wipers on for the first time today & when the blades are on the upward turning point (level with the A pillar) there is an almighty clunk, any ideas what this is & how to rectify it?

sounds like your motor is loose, check it and make sure all bolts are tight and it should be ok. if you are missing bolts just get one from a hardware shop /autofactor/ scrap yard

hope this helps

The wipers may be hitting the windscreen suround if they are travelling too far.
You may have to loosen the wiper arms,reposition them slightly then tighten them again. It is probably best to test them on the fast setting as wipers move quicker and a bit further on that setting, so if the wipers are clear on fast the should be ok on normal speed.
