Scenic MK1 wiper arm joint
Hi, first post so be gentle!
The left side ball joint on the wiper motor arm of my 1999 Megan Scenic keeps popping out.
I donít want to pay for a complete assembly (on fleaBay theyíre about £45) as I could easily be buying one thatís 3 months away from failing itself. For now I have packed the joint out with grease (hopefully to provide some suction) and fed a small cable tie through the two very convenient holes in the upper and lower arms. Donít know if this will hold for long and I wanted a better fix.
Does anyone know if you can buy a replacement plastic cup from Renault and if so how easy/hard they are to replace?
Or can I source just the lower arm from somewhere? I dabble with cars a lot but donít want to get into replacing the whole assembly if I can avoid it Ė it looks like quite a bit of a job at first glance!
