When I got my first car (B Reg Diahatsu Charade) and was a poor student, the windcreen wipers didnt work.

The fix ? Two pieces of string attached to the drivers side wiper blade. One threaded through the drivers window, and one through the passenger window. Just pull on drivers string to lift the wiper, and pull the passenger string to lower it !

Those were the days ! LMAO

It worked, albeit better if I had a passenger in the car at the time. Made driving a little hard in fast rain. LOL

Needless to say it was a short term fix and got a new motor for the windscreen wipers eventually.
