Default Well, that's the wipers done

Finally got round to fitting the new wiper motor to the 155. What an
absolute pain in the arse job that was.

Quite tricky to set up so they don't hit the bonnet or fly off the
driver's side of the windscreen, too. And what were Alfa thinking of
with the controls? - only one speed plus a 3-setting intermittent.
Wierd.

Still, at least it's done, even if I'm 92 lighter in the wallet :-(

The first intermittent setting is more or less equal to "normal" cars.
Just the way you use it. The only problem was that the actual speed of
the wipers was IMO a bit too high to clear the windscreen with the
water, it easily slipped throw underneath.
