Rain-X Windshield Wipers
« on: Feb 16, 2011, 04:15 PM »
Reference this poast on the old forum: Rain-X Latitude Windshield Wipers

It has now been well over a year since I installed these wipers. To date they continue to perform quite well. They are not as streak-free as when they were new, but they continue to do the job well enough that it would be wasteful to replace them now. The occasional streak on the passenger side is very minor and often goes away after a few sweeps.

A couple weeks ago I gave the blades a good scrubbing. The rubber still looks good with no noticeable signs of cracks or excessive wear and tear.

Scuzzy; I like it when something works better than expected.

Sure. Yesterday and a year ago. ;)

Scuzzy; older but no wiser.

Since I last poasted in this thread, my driver's side wiper blade (24") deteriorated fairly quickly. We had some less than ideal weather recently and the blade was performing poorly. The passenger side blade (18") is still performing like new; at least for now.

I went to a local Wal-Mart last night and picked up a new pair of Rain-X Latitude blades, but I only installed the driver's side. I figure the passenger side might also fail soon, so it's best to be prepared.

With the new driver's side blade installed, the performance of the blades is back to excellent. Hopefully for another 1 year plus.

I got a couple of those for the Ranger and they work fine. Doesn't seem to matter what the weather is they just get the job done.
