First it was a screw holdind the plastic covers in the engine. Then it was a plastic fasener over the oil dip stick.....

NOW.... Its the bottom part of the L shape brace connected to the wiper? Part of it cracked while I was washing my car last night. I did not touch it, I noticed this as I raised the divers side wiper??

Has anyone ever broken this small L shaped plastic part on their drivers side wiper? I am assuming its there to suppport the wiper? Only one small side of the two sided point that attaches to metal blade cracked??

Looks like all it needs is a crazy glue? However, I never replaced Maserati wiper blades and I don't want to mess anything up? Right now its got some electrical tape holding it down.

Not too concerned about my wipers since I have never taken the car out in the rain? But approaching 10,000 miles and seems like the plastic no longer wants to stay on the car...

based on prior responses here, I doubt you will get much sympathy...you bought an Italian exotic for chrisssakes...!!


but, I do find some bizzare things happen .....for me it has been

1. wiped down dashboard with Protectant, the chrome surrounds around the right side vent literally crumbled before my eyes...(got Gino to cover under warranty)

2. on another day, lightly wiping down interior and the thread hook of a microfiber towel got caught in the "Maserati" script on my ashtray...snapped it right in half.

What kind of protectant did you put on your dashboard?

We found in the 80's that with our Porsches, you shouldn't wipe down the leather dashes with anything other than a damp towel (while not in the sun). It seems that Porsche uses a specially dried leather on the dashes so it can be stretched extra-tight. Putting a leather cleaner or emoliant on the leather in this application caused it to expand and develop wrinkles.

Wonder if Maserati does the same thing on their dashes?

I was using either Maguires, Klasse, or this English Stuff that the Queen uses (or her servants) use in their "coaches"...all fairly respectable stuff....I am a freak when it comes to car care stuff and buy stuff just to try, so I am not sure what I was using that day...
