Hi Folks.

I notice that one of my wipers is a bit floppy. With the wipers off the arm can move maybe 30 degrees.

Before I remove the arm and have a look, what are the likely causes of this.

Thanks.

Could you suggest what is worn in the linkage? I've had a look at the diagram and it's not clear to me how it all works or what items wear. I was hoping it would be worn splines under the arm.

It might be splines. (Loose nut on wiper arm?). Otherwise play in mechanism below.

Seems I'm lucky. The nut was a bit loose, took it and the arm off, removed the felt washer.

The splines look worn to me but it all snugged up OK when reassembled.

Let's hope it holds!
