Windscreen Wiper Linkage Broken again for the second time. I guess a common problem as the mounting plate for the motor has completely broken away yet again. Same place.
I think last time i replaced it the secondhand one i fitted already started to crack but had problems sourcing that one so i had to fit it.
Can you get good/new replacements or has anyone got a spare i could buy from you ?

I remember the one on mine going deep in Snowdonia during a decent downpour, having to drive back slowly using a wiper blade out the window till I got somewhere with signal. Is it a common problem then?

This will be the second time i have changed mine, and on both occasions they have cracked across the motor attaching screws causing the motor to break away.
Thank you both for the help above. I will let you know how i get on.
Also i too would like to know if this is a common problem with the wiper mechanism.

So when you say it broke the mount, did you replace all the parts last time? motor and leakage and mounts?
