Wiper arm spring replacement

Has anyone ever replaced the springs in the wiper arms? Mine don't have much force anymore and affects the wipers performance a fair bit. I've seen universal springs that for over the arms, but they're a bit ugly. New wiper arms are 70 odd quid a piece from dealers and I'm not £150 bothered. Not seen anything else anywhere though. Any suggestions? Cheers


If in doubt, give it a clout!

Is there any chance you could rob them off other arms .............

I've never changed them but imagine they would have a good bit of tension in them making it a pig or slightly dangerous job
Only thing I've done over the years for more pressure on screen is put a bit of a bend in the arm.......................

I've considered the option of getting wiper arms off a newer model from a scrap yard or something. I'm assuming the newer facelift models have the same wipers

Re: Wiper arm spring replacement

Just a thought..........

Ask if kenbw2 could cross reference your part number on servicebox too a newer model that might help or as I said before and suck it and see
(it should be in the section for equipment and subsection wipe)
