And yet another newb question for today........On my way to work hit an Alabama serious downpour deluge with Forrest Gump big ole fat rain. Wipers work well, but only when im doing below 25 mph. Had 15 cars backed up behind me. Living in the deep south has its challenges!

Has anyone expirimented (is that spelled correct?) with other wiper motors etc....A motor that will drive them a little faster?

May thru Aug we have our daily downpours that are insaine but you can set your watch by it. My Baja is my daily driver so encounter them a lot.

Any suggestions welcome! Even comical ones!

Bobby

I use lots of RainX.

@nd if your blades are slow you have somthing wired wrong or the motor is bad. There should be 2 speeds Fast and slow/park. If when you turn your blades of the speed never changes your in slow speed aka park. park runs slow so it will not over ride the dead spot aka park spot in the blade cycle. If your blades run fast and never stop in park then some one wired it wrong.

Sorry for no reply, I know you guys take the time to answer and I owe you one back. Had a small mishap at work and investigations locked up my time.

Park works great, will look into checking the motor and a bit of lubrication.

Rain X, planned on it but have not tried yet......Good suggestion!

Thanks.......

Bobby

I use RainX a lot. Although on a vertical flat windshield like a Bug it doesn't work nearly as well as on a sloped aero windshield.

I have a 61 Falcon with vacuum wipers. And due to difficulty with getting the wiper "motor" rebuilt, I drove the car 145,000 mostly desert 2-lane and freeway miles in 4 years with NO functioning wipers. I only used RainX, and rarely felt it would be nice to actually have the wipers working. Running wipers wipes off RainX after a while too.

Please do NOT consider this a recommendation to operate your car without wipers though!

Rich,

Yep I know this well. My FJ Cruiser has a flat windshield with 3 wipers.

When I was in Korea, had a Dalim.woo.dai whatever, but wipers broke and did the rain X thing for 18 months.

Just trying to figure out an alternative the the Alabama deluges we have.

Thanks for your input!

Bobby
