just to update you. renault updated the wiper linkage and as far as i know they put little rubber boots over the ball joints to stop water ingress. these boots CANNOT be purchased on their own. you have to buy the whole unit. if looking at buying second hand be warned that if the unit does not have the rubber boots that you could end up with the same problem within no time. a temporary cure to stop wear is to put grease in the ball joints or oil them monthly
