Frozen Wipers - It's cold outside

Hi Brody, Did you de-ice the wipers and windscreen first Ė If not you could have damaged the blades never mind the wiper motor refusing to work. Many modern cars have a cut-out device to prevent damage to the motor and associated linkage, etc. I note your comment about you car just being MOTíd Ė but I canít see what relevance that has with the wipers. After all an MOT purely relates to a test an examination of the vehicle and not a comprehensive service of the vehicle. The last time I checked MOTís did not involve preventative maintenance.
