Re: windhshield wiper migration - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
My 06 SC Aero wiper blades did the migration thing at 80K miles. And then stopped working entirely shortly thereafter. In the rain no less.
It turned out to be the wiper transmission linkages. they just self destructed. they are not rebuildable and must be replaced. this is not hard to do, and requires simple tools.
Evidently 80K miles is the MTBF for this part.
The transmissions are availiable online from different sources at different prices. Look around. The same part fits Opel, and Vauxhall so it's not too hard to find.
If you remove the plastic cover at the windshield base. you will readily see the issue that is most likely the problem.
