New rear wiper arm and clean up
« on: 16 April 2018, 19:47:35 »

Since my Omega is so very nice and good looking I was a little annoyed by the rear wiper arm that had lost its paint in some areas and it didn't looked good on this car.

The Opel dealer could order a new one from Germany, it cost about £50.00. It took less than a week before they called that it was there for pickup. In the mean time I removed the plastic cover to clean up behind it. That pocket collects dust and especially if driven during winter salt and dust collects there and you get rust below the cover.

This car has nothing of that but I wanted to clean it up anyway.

Here is how it looked when I removed the cover.


And now a little better


Result with new wiper arm


The big nut that holds the cover had some rust that I removed with sand paper. The thread that holds the wiper arm was a little rusty too but some 5.56 and running the nut back and forth took care of that too.

I remember doing that with my 3.2 estate.. and was so happy not to find any rust behind the plastic cover that i failed to notice the dirty rust patch around the washer jet which to be fair was partly hidden by the spoiler...
