Question about Vauxhall Cars & Trucks
I changed my wiper blades recently on my car, and the driver side is a spoiler blade. I got halfords to fit them, so it would be done propperly, and every so often the blade hits off the side of the car, as if it is swinging too much. If I try to show someone what it is doing when the car isn't moving or going really slow, it acts normal. However when you are going roughly 30mph, it starts to hit off the side. Halfords say I have the right size of blade, the garage says the wiper arm isn't loose and even adjusted the arm down a bit, but it is still doing it?! It's really driving me mad as it makes some noise! I was thinking, is it because it's a spoiler blade and is maybe too heavy for the wiper arm? I have a Vauxhall Corsa 2004 SXi
Has been moved or the one fitted is bigger that the one it was originally set to. take the cap off the wiper arm and undo the nut. then wiggle the wiper blade arm until it comes off. then put back on and leave an inch gap from bottom off the window to the wiper. tighten the nut up and check that it works ok without going over any of the rubbers on the winds screen. if it does re do it and lift it a bit more up. then it should be fine after driving over 30mph then.

you could have a bent suspension arm or a tracking problem i would recomend you get these things checked first
if thats all fine i would go to your local brakers yard and get an electric power steering pump and fit it yourself
they are located on the steering column at the top and can be seen if you pull off the trim panel on the right
they are only held in by a couple of bolts

There is a tool for that, to take the spring tension off the arm
You can still wrestle it off, by lifting the arm off windshield
& on the arms right side & under it ,is a small tab you slide
Then the arm comes off & you can reinstall in a different place
