C5 wipers go off the screen!


Went out yesterday in the Z06 and it started raining, I was going quite fast and it was more windy than usual, when I turned on the wipers they flew past the edge of the screen quite violently.
I slowed down and they worked and parked fine, anyone had this trouble??

Re: C5 wipers go off the screen!


Not happened on my C5, but a couple of years ago a similar thing happened on my daughter's Fiat when on fast wipe. Turned out to perished bushes in the mechanism. If you lift the wiper is there any free movement? On the Fiat the blade was 'loose' to the tune of almost an inch either way. Replaced the bushes and it's been fine ever since.

Same thing happens on my C4 at speed but not the C6.
Solution, buy a C6 and/or don't drive in the rain. Laughing

Sorry I can't come to work today, I need to see the Vette.

maybe take off the cowl (carefully) the z06 screen is thinner and a bit fragile, after removing the wiper arms and check the linkages on the drivers side - this is a good time to also grapple with the udders (!!!) clear them out 2 drivers side, one under battery - when these clog on the drivers side the wiper mechanism and motor can get flooded.

Mine do this at speed too. It's quite disconcerting! This was at 150mph on the runway at RAF Wittering tho - Keith may remember this day.

Not sure what the threshold speed on mine will be, and I'm not planning trying it again!

I was up ther Tim, not as fast as you but surely this is not right on a car that does 180+ from the factory!
