sort of off topic but is there a tq spec for the acorn nut that keeps the wiper arm on? i cant find one so i just tightened it up until it doesnt jiggle anymore.

This looks like a nice mod, good work!

Did you ever find out the issue with the driver side and the trim?

I'm sure there is, but I have no idea what it is.

Thank you.

No, I didn't. I can't find a definitive time when it does it or not. It does it more on the highways, but not all the time.
It's not bad enough to make me need to fix it, it's just peculiar.
I guess I have loose and sloppy wiper arms

My wipers do that with the OEM CB wipers. So, it has nothing to do with your wiper blade setup.

Hmm. That makes me feel a little bit better.

This seems like a good idea. The ones I have are slightly elevated on the drivers side.
The wiper arm isn't in-line with the actual wiper.

This is sweet. I hate how the aftermarket uniblade styles dont get 100% contact on the windshield...either that or when your driving on the freeway and the wiper blades come down they lift and dont do squat.

I tried michiellens, and rainx. Went back to bosch spring style and it was all good.

These do lift slightly, but not a ton.
I took my car through the car wash the other day. First time in 8 months.
Terrified me going through the blowers.

So what's the word on these?

How are they holding up a year later?

Are they worthwhile still?

This is a nice mod. I did not do it myself but the owner before me did, there is a lot of things that the owner did that I am trying to figure out. Anyways I have had the same inserts for my entire owner-ship of over a year now and they are just now chattering, and I have no idea how long they have been on there.

Mine are starting to chatter a little.

Since the inserts are only $5, I'll probably replace them when spring comes around and I do my spring maintenance.

Ideally u want to replace ur wipers twice a year or at least every spring. Winter conditions will kill wipers in a hurry. I replace mine every year after winter and this is a mod i will use because it sounds like it will save a lot of money in the long run.

I've had these style blades for about 5 years. Inserts are at least 8 to 10 from a dealer.

the best thing u can do to preserve your wiper blades, IS DONT INSTALL THEM UNLESS YOU NEED THEM. keep them in the trunk. if ur on the road and it starts to rain, pull off to a gas station or under a drive through and throw them on.

i bought rain x blades when they first came out with the new fancy latitude ones and they were 20$ each. i used them maybe twice in the first year and after that they were toast. they BAKE on the windshield and become shit!

That sounds inconvenient for people who live in wetter climates lol I know I wouldn't be doing that.
