MK4 Clio Wipers Linkage


Pretty annoyed this morning, a couple of weeks ago we had to take our clio back to the dealers as the wiper linkage has broken, as I was trying to shift the snow from my screen. There wasnt that much there to be honest. The lady in servicing explained that its a safety mechanism which kicks in if its trying to move such thing. So i took it on the chin and paid the 25 for 5 mins work to fix it. However this morning zilch snow or ice or anything! Its happened again it was 3 degrees in the car and the linkage has broken again. I've looked under the bonnet but i cant see a way to access the linkage. Can anyone help please?

I dont think you will find the info on here because of the age of your car..if you do manage to get any info please post it up I will be good to have for future members..IMHO I think it was bad that they charged you the 25 to fix what indeed looks like a future problem with the Mk4 clio..

Re: MK4 Clio Wipers Linkage

On most cars the wiper linkage is under the windscreen scuttle panel so I suggest you start there.

Looks like one of the joints has popped off and once the do they tend not be a good as fit as a brand new so be prepared to pay for a replacement.
