    Default 355 wiper arm

    The drivers side wiper arm on my 355 is making a noise, seems to be loose at the secoundary pantograph arm pivot point but can't see how / if this can be tightened, anyone changed a complete arm? is it just a ball and socket pivot ? help much appreciated

    I will need a new part replace the pivot - not cheap either and check the arm too

    Never mind the wiper arm Chris, I don't think you have posted what you bought so I was unaware. Time to get it round to FP . Apologies if I did miss the news of your new arrival.

    PS, tell Paul he needs to cull some of the wild rabbits in his garden .
