Hi All,

I have a J10 Qashqai which suffers from the usual wiper linkage failure. After repairing it twice in the last 3 years its gone again, so I decided I would buy a new wiper / linkage motor set which came with a 5 year guarantee.

The kit arrived today and I have fitted it, no issues there. Until I went to attach the wiper arms. I starting screwing the nut on the driver side which was a little stiff, but then the spindle started to spin. So I can neither unscrew or tighten it now but have a loose wiper in place.

I am not sure what to do now, but I am thinking of dremeling the wiper nut off. However after spending ages on google I can't find a replacement. Can anyone tell me if these are a standard m nut size?

I had a little go with the passenger side too and it seemed that this would do the same, as in really stiff as though it was cross threaded, so I am concerned this new motor / spindle has different screw threads to my original one.

Any ideas much appreciated.
