ok my wipers suck. the 3 speeds that they have are slow with like a 15 sec delay, slow wit no dely, and moderate speed. so its good for down pour or drizzle only. nothing in between. whats up wit that. plus my wipers make a lous squeek when they go. unless it is pouring rain of course. its come to the point that if the visibility isnt too bad, ill wait til the last minute to even wipe the window.

is there a way to upgrade this??? like a new motor? or do i just need new wipers so they stop squeeking? im so lost with this. :(

Funny, I may have one Nissan Euro 100NX wiper left. I have 5 of them and two of them are sold. The kind with the factory spoiler on it. May help keep the wiper a little more secure to the windshield. If I do not sell the other 3 tonight, I can save it for you.

new wiper blades with an alcohol wipe before the first use and rain-X works freaking wonders. My wipers keep my window crystal clear works likea squigee now.
I cannot have bad wipers as i have poor night vision and i cant see jack out of a blurry window.
but it all works fine now. As for the speed i remeber reading aboutsomeone putting the 240 wiper switch in a b13. It has variable speed switch. I think it might have been on Se-r.net

I just got some new wipers from silblade and they are fantastic. Dead quiet in any level of rainfall. They supposedly last 5 years too.

It is yours. It is $19.00+ $8.50 for the shipping from Germany + like $2.00 to you if you are interested. The other 3 are for my local guys. I should not be more than like $2.00 USP tops from me to you. I wish it were cheaper, but the $85.00 shipping I have to send Koschi had to be broken down into 10 people.

Never heard of Rain-X?
You can get it at any store around here, wal-mart, autozone, heck, gas stations have one-time use cloths for $1.

Let me know if you need a bottle sent over... shipping will kill you, but a large bottle would last you for 10 years, costs about $10 I think.

It is some sort of alcohol that seals the windshield kind of like wax. At moderate speeds and above you don't need wipers at all, the water beads into super-tiny droplets and just streaks off the window.

Sweet thanks, i'll chase it up today after work.

Most probably if they cost $1 for one wipe, it would cost $10 here.
