So I tried the grease cleanup a second time, but used cotton ear buds to get into the edges - 9 months on and after the wettest summer in decades all is well in the wiper department

My little blue zed is in lots of bits. With lots of things started and not many finished! I may have found the limits of my time and ability!!

I got them literally the attempt after posting that message, once I could see how they joined, the other came of first time (with very generous amounts of WD40).

I did manage to loose two plastic clip screws and smash 3 of the clips on the userside of the plastic cover, such brittle plastic. Then again it wsnt exactly warm.... :s
