About Wiper Linkage

Wipers are a standard safety feature in cars and can be positioned on both the front and rear windscreen of the car. Most cars have two wipers on the front windscreen, one on the driverside and one on the passengerside. Rear windscreens tend to have just one long wiper that sweeps across the whole of the windscreen. The wiper consists of a wiper arm and a wiper blade. The wiper blade is made from rubber and as the arm is powered to move across the windscreen, the rubber blade moves the water and debris from the surface of the windscreen, clearing the screen to enable a clear vision of sight for the driver.

The Trafic Renault wiper linkage is the mechanism responsible for the movement of the wiper arms on the windscreen of the vehicle. Driven by the wiper motor, the linkage is moved back and forth by cams. The motor and linkage mechanism is located beneath the bonnet, generally concealed by a plastic scuttle panel. The wiper arms are normally bolted or attached to the linkage on studs or splines that protrude through the scuttle panel. 

The driver can decide at what speed the wipers move, usually from a choice of three speeds, depending on the weather conditions. The driver can operate the wipers by selecting the desired speed on the wiper switch stalk, which usually mounted on the steering column. This activates the wiper motor switch, which operates with a wiper motor relay. 

The driver needs to look through the front windscreen to see the road ahead, and through the back windscreen to see the traffic behind, so it is imperative that the windscreens are in perfect, clean condition and the wipers, with the help of the wiper linkage, help to ensure this is the case. If the wiper linkage mechanism has broken on the windscreen, replacing it with the Trafic Renault wiper linkage will ensure you get a part which is compatible with the make and model of your vehicle.

Renault Trafic trivia

  • It used to be that when you bought a Renault Trafic, you would be given the option of either a 4-year warranty or 100,000-mile warranty. However, the current Trafic comes with a 3-year policy as standard (and still covers 100,000 miles).
  • In Australia in 2020, the Renault Trafic was rebadged and then sold as the third-generation Mitsubishi Express.
  • Launched in 2014, the Renault Trafic has already had one facelift (2019), and a 2020 update that saw a different front end and more options for buyers to choose from.
  • One of the main elements of driving a Renault Trafic that owners praise is the fact that it’s a lot of fun. That’s partly because of the manual override on the gear selector so that driving a Trafic feels like driving a race car.
  • There are a few special edition Renault Trafics, with the most famous one being the Formula Edition (designed to celebrate Renault’s relationship and standing in F1). In 2020, a Renault Trafic Black Edition was also introduced, which is a lot more expensive than a standard Trafic but looks a lot sportier.
