Slow windscreen (windshield) wipers
My windscreen-(shield) wipers work but at only about half their correct speed.
I suspect the linkage is either worn, corroded, or both, causing excessive friction. I also notice that the spindle that the blade arm is attached to moves up and done a couple of millimetres as the arm sweeps from side to side which might point to wear lower down but hidden by the surrounding plastic cover.
Can any one tell me (or better yet point me to a photo) how to get at the linkage and wiper motor.
Very many thanks
Best wishes from a still cold UK.
