The wiper arm mechanism is held securely in place by the wiper spindle nut and a bolt and nut on the left which is glued to the glass.
The bolt has become unglued. I re-glued mine using araldite, this lasted about 3 months, I have re-glued it again using evo-stick serious glue this is still OK after 4 months.
If you want to try my method of repair do not undo the nut that is on the bolt which is supposed to be glued to the glass just revolve the wiper mechanism so you can apply glue to the plate on the bolt then when you put it back on the screen make sure it lines up in the correct place.
Good luck with it and don't break the glass!
The Serious Glue gets maximum strength after 24 hours so I carefully used a piece of wood with soft cloth around it and used a clamp, not tight or the glass could break, to hold it in place for the 24 hours, see the photo.
The nut I am talking about is the shiny one just to the left of the clamp.
Brilliant post: mine's just done the same.
How much is a new mechanism from the main stealers?
