Any idea when the new assembly started turning up on production Tregs? Might give us some idea of whether worth while asking for replacement or not?
I got new arms and rubbers from Listers Stratford without quibble !!ginagarus said:OK took the rag down the dealers and enquired with their tech regards these wiper arms as mine only clear water from areas on the screen passengers look through, indeed he replied there have been some modified rubbers which are softer but not replacement arms? but said that these rubbers? will improve the performance which is currently dangerous!! so I await the call when they get the parts in and we'll see.... hopefully, pardon the pun.
Whenever I find an item available free under warrenty, I always print off the thread and take it with me to show the dealer - just in case they try to fob me off !!!ginagarus said:Its nice to know these things as fact, trouble is all I ever seem to deal with is sloppy dealers, nothing is ever honest and up front!!! now and again you think you find a good dealer but the next time the car is in you end up wanting to give someone a slap!!! I am absolutely sick to the back teeth of listening to some know f all pretty thing telling me all about what the problem is not knowing I am a mechanic and know full well what she is saying is sh!te..... arrrgghhh when will it change, all you want is a straight feckin answer instead its always the long way round to getting what you want!!! My clio v6 is also in under warranty at the moment as they are humming and ahhing as to whether they will rebuild or replace the knackered gearbox I know what I'd prefer but I'm also argueing with them that the clutch is shot aswell and they might as well replace that too but they seem to think that its ok to slip on a change into second under power there answer was to drive it slower????? I'm a little confused was that what they designed a 3.0 clio for?? driving slowly!!!! I despare at these dealers and the fact we have to fight for everything under warranties!!!! :bashwall: :bashwall:
Any part number visible / obvious? I assume you got a receipt (even tho' it's an FOC item)?pilgrim said:There are modified wiper arms available and should be fitted FOC under warranty mostly on 2003/4 model years, don't be put off by sloppy dealers who can't be bothered to find out..
Top effort - many thanks.pilgrim said:Wiper Arms
