I've got a Corsa C 1.8 SRI 03 Plate,

My Windscreen Wipers have recently gone crazy.

They started slowing up when in motion, I changed the blades and checked they weren't too near the glass etc.

Now, they're stuck at about a 45 degrees angle. Right in my eye-line when driving. When I turn them on they wipe down to the normal position then back up to a 90 degree angle then back down to about 45 degrees then stop. They still work when on continuously.

What the hells up with them and how can I fix them?!?!

Wiper motor, the park relay is part of the motor.

Also if they were going really slow, the spindles in the rack will have seized/started to seize.

Yup the wiper motors on these are quite prone to going, especially the earlier ones

i had to have my gearlinkage done aswell

when you fit a new wiper linkage make sure its set up properly i didnt do mine properly because when i was on the motoway way and put my wipers on they would stay up the window a bit untill u stopped and then they would go in the correct place

If the rack is seized, with a bit of patience and time you can just free it off.

Nail, head, done. Thats the problem i had with my C (both the linkage and the motor), you'll have to get a new motor from ebay/Vx. How ever the linkage can be refurbished quite easily, will need to strip the whole lot down clean it up then grease all the bearings and it'll be fine.

I ended up replacing the whole Wiper Motor, the old one was a bit of a mess, it was 125 from Vauxhall but got it fitted with a little help from a mechanic friend for a 10.

Think mine must have been changed but put back together wrong, the wipers sit too far down and don't go all the way to my drivers a pillar
