Faulty front wipers
« on: September 08, 2018, 05:46:46 PM »
Hi all, I had my Mk5 golf front wiper linkage snap on me, I bought a used linkage and it came seized etc, took it all apart removed all the gunk inside regreased it and put it back together, put it into the car after checking the spindles actually spun, after attaching the blades and trying them I've noticed one wiper will only go up a little bit while the other won't go up at all, its attempting to move them I believe but I hear little noises almost like it's attempting to move the wipers but can't, I can't think of what's wrong as the linkage is all running smoothly aswell as the motor working, it's like it's moving the blade maybe 1/4 of what it's supposed to aswell as the other not moving at all, I've tried to give as much detail as possible to anyone in the hope it might help someone diagnose my problem, I'm kinda at my wits end with it and any light on the situation would he appreciated.

Regards, Aidan.
