My passanger side windshield wiper skips most of my winshield. I looked
into getting a new arm for it, but they want $90 each! I drive a 92 Ford
Festiva, and can't justify spending that much. I tried bending it in, but
that didn't work either. Then I saw online something called "surewipe".
They are kinda like springs that hold the arm down with more strength.
Sounds good, right? It seems that they make the springs for every type of
car but mine! :ugh
Any other thoughts?
Not sure of what this spring is, but what do you mean by misses? It sounds like you just need new windshield wipers, something that is neither very hard nor very expensive to replace.
by "misses" I mean that the middle of the wiper blade doesn't come in
contact with the windshield. I have new wiper blades, good ones, but it
doesn't help. I was told that over time the spring in the arm gets weak,
causing lifting and missing. I can't afford new arms. I don't know what
else may help though.
why dont ya just go to the junkyard and try for a better set, or ebay?
Just go to your local pick a part and get one, they can't want more than 5 bucks for it.
Try getting new blades first, before you try to replace the whole arm. If
that doesn't work:
a) bend them some more
b) get new springs
c) get new arms
Id buy a new car if I were you(Im not rich). :thumbs:
dont waste your money just buy new refils
