wiper linkage noise

Recommended Posts

I have removed , cleaned, greased and rebuilt the wiper linkage on my 88 stevens esprit and fitted a new motor. Its all working but there is a mecanical clunking from the wiper pivot point. I am pretty sure its not rubbing or fouling  on anything.  How silent should it be? Once the engines running and its hammering down with rain and with wind and tyre noise perhaps you wouldnt notice it.

My wiper linkage was also noisy and also would not hold the wiper blade bar, the swivel ball on the car was ok but when I pushed the wiper arm on to the ball it was tight at first then went lose when in position, seems the wiper arm ball socket is worn, I repaired this with a small amount of chemical metal approx size of a pea, this stopped the movement, I also pressed the rivets together to hold the wiper blade arm securely. Job done
