    hi all,
    last night my front wipers packed up.
    they get to about halfway up the windscreen, then they stop and all i can here is the motor running,it sounds like the gears or linkage maybe has lost some teeth as there is a grinding sound.
    is this a replacement part?
    i expect it is has anyone done this?
    cheers for any help!

    well ive taken the wiper assembly apart.
    the fault is in the motor.
    the large white plastic gear has shredded its teeth.
    i cant seem to find a new motor!
    could this damaged gear be replaced?
