We will be working normally and have a large warehouse full of parts that will help keep your car on the road. However, we are seeing some supply delays from factory lockdowns around the world.Workshop Customers:
Following government guidance, we are open as usual. Taking your vehicle to a garage for repairs is a permitted activity (safety) as long as you observe the social distancing rules. We have strict social distancing processes internally and disinfect daily (not least because we have staff in vulnerable groups). In the circumstances, we have had to close our waiting room. Our mechanics wear gloves at all times and we will disinfect your vehicle with our Zaflora sprays on handing back to you. We would respectfully ask you to show our staff the same courtesy. We also have full amount contactless payment systems. *
MOTs due for renewal from 30th March to 31st July 2020 were extended for six months. There have been no MOT extensions since then. After the first lock-down, the massive pent-up demand for MOTs overwhelmed supply so even if you don't need to use your car in this current lock-down, it is still strongly recommended to get one done should your vehicle be needed at short notice.
How to replace a rear wiper blade on an Alfa Romeo
Replacing a rear wiper blade on an Alfa Romeo
First of all make sure you have the correct wiper blade, there are two different length blades on 147's depending if the car is fitted with a lip spoiler on the roof, you cannot fit the standard blade if you have a lip spoiler as it is too long! First make sure the wiper blade is in the park position. To fit the blade you need to lift off the protective cover at the base of the blade.
Then remove the securing nut.
Give the wiper blade a wiggle and it will come off. Put the new blade on in the park position and then do up the securing nut. clip the cover down, then lift the arm of the rear windscreen and operate the wiper, making sure that park is in the correct place.
