my service dude at Inskip motors (Warwick, RI) hooked me up with new wipers last time and I didn't even need them. If your service person is cool, they should give you stuff like this for free. All they really want is the good review so they get more money and stuff.

don't pour warm water, it might crack you windshield?

I don't know, I'm from hawaii and cali, so no ice issues for the most part. lol

mine did the same, not as bad as your wipers. I haven't done anything about it just yet, but I am assuming that it will fix itself.

update:

just fixed it myself. i bent the wiper arm(not the blade) a little. when i mean a little you cannot physically see the difference but now its lying flat. guess it got deformed from all the heavy snow or ice.:dunno:

i suppose very slightly. visually you cannot tell it was bent. when i was bending the wiper arm, it looked the same as before i was trying to bend it. its not like you actually bend the wiper arm. im gonna post pics of what i mean

hold RED 1(mid wiper arm) up while gently pushing down on RED 2(end of wiper arm)
the problem was that YELLOW 3 was touching the wiper arm preventing YELLOW 4 from touching window.
when you make a small clearance between the YELLOW 3 and RED 1(wiper arm) then it will rest on the windshield properly
be gentle:tongue:
