This is a question Bodge Jobs

If you can't fix it with a hammer and a roll of duck tape, it's not worth fixing at all, my old mate said minutes before that nasty business with the hammer and a roll of duck tape. Tell us of McGyver-like repairs and whether they were a brilliant success or a health and safety nightmare.

Windscreen wiper linnkage
Wiper linkage to spindle type piece that wiper blade is attached to breaks. Wipers flapping around like insane Italan traffic controllers.
Genuine replacement part £230.
You can't just buy the linkages, have to buy the whole lot with motor and everything.
£230 Fuck that !
One tube of Araldite and a jubilee clip, about a fiver.
Two hours and a piece of string (to hold everything in place while the araldite sets) later.
Windscreen wipers better than brand new.
£225 beer tokens in credit to me.
