Re: Horrendous crackling noise from engine

Thanks everyone. Sent it to the dealership I bought it from and the mechanic said the same about the starter motor needing some lubricant. They’ll take it in when he’s free (everyone’s getting their MOTs in the midst of this crisis).

Thanks all.

Re: Windscreen wiper banging against A pillar?

I did have a go at adjusting the position of the wiper arm myself but it's very tricky to do. The bonnet seems to get in the way.

Might just take it back to the garage and get them to have a look at it.

Windscreen wiper banging against A pillar?

Hey there, I'm having an issue with my windscreen wiper blade intermittently banging against the A pillar, or at least that's what I think it's doing. When it reaches its peak it seems to make a thud/clunking noise every now and then, roughly every three wipes or so. I notice it most when the screen...
