The linkage tends to fall apart, which gives a different problem than just working slowly.
But, and I'll keep saying this, you need to inspect the parts to diagnose them! Guessing(or hoping) is a waste of time and money.

That is what made me think it is the motor struggling to move the wipers, then overheating. Which is why the wipers work slowly again, after it has cooled down. Looking on eBay, there are no motors available, Iíd have too buy the whole assembly again. Iím not mechanically minded, Iíll have too get my mechanic too have a look.

After the wiper arms have been removed from the spindles, there are just 4 hex headed self tappers that hold the whole assembly in place.
I know that Omegas are very thin on the ground on the road let alone scrap yards, but buying in person is always best. On first glance, the wiper motor of an Astra G looks the same as an Omega's  :-\

Can any other member confirm that the Astra G mechanism will fit my facelift? What years are the Astra G?

I said the MOTOR looks similar .....

If it's been beat up and battered around, you know where to take it.

Will the mechanism fit? Not a chance.


But an Astra motor might fit the Omega mechanism.

Manufacturing tolerance of pattern parts...

Basically, use a suitable file to slightly extend the oval slot on the top strut/hub bolt ;)

Once the tyres have started to wear in a particular way, they will continue to wear unevenly even if the cause has been addressed.

Tweak the camber adjustment, fit new tyres and report back after a few k:s ;)

Camber 1.2 degree.
Toe is now 0, on scale +-0.05mm.

It is understeering again  ::) But yes the front tires are shot from the inside side, so I'll drive the winter with this setup.

Couldn't get to 1.1 degree camber on the right side of the car, anyone know why? I mean I have the adjustment on limit.

Part of me misses the challenges of regular class 1 work, but there's not much call for it in airport land ::)

That said, I have my Snow Plough refresher on Thursday...

Which means doing a reverse figure of 8 in This....

Which is nice :D

Can you parallel park it though?  ::)
Just about... the steering single rear axle is a bit of a mind oppser :D
