Today I washed my B-Max after the bad weather at the start of the week and lifted the rear wiper arm to wash under the wiper and when I did the wiper arm came off[img]smileys/smiley7.gif[/img]but was not broken. I then noticed there was no hook on the motor end of the spring so could not just clip it back on, so booked in with my dealer next week for spring to be replaced.
The other thing I noticed was that the spring its self had no give in it and was very stiff, so would of had trouble getting the arm high enough to replace the blade.
I would like to know if any other owners have a stiff spring on their rear wiper arm?
My rear wiper arm only lifts about one inch. It's not like any other car I have had before where the wiper can spring up to right angle. It seams very strange to me. I had a cmax where the wiper lifts right up.
I wonder if this is due to another FORD cheaper option[img]smileys/smiley5.gif[/img] package - i.e. whip it off, and charge for a full replacement, rather than fit a new blade[img]smileys/smiley3.gif[/img][img]smileys/smiley3.gif[/img]!Or maybe, the "Technicians" arn't taught how to change blades these days[img]smileys/smiley36.gif[/img]!
