Skip, you do realize that "we don't get no snow" actually means that you DO get snow, right?
Makes sense since AZ does get snow.

I'll find out when I perform a compression test soon. I replaced the original glow plugs back in November 2012 and now a couple have gone bad sucking down too much voltage during KOEO.

So while I'm replacing those, I'll perform a compression test since they all have to be out anyhow.

A new rear wiper arm fixed the issues mine as well. I'm having issues with the front driver's side not wiping the center at the edge of the windshield. I played around with it and it looks like the spring pressure is too strong (or maybe not strong enough) and causing it to sit cockeyed on the mounting post. I think the fix is to put a small washer on top of the post to take up the slack so it sits straight. I haven't gotten around to doing it yet. Maybe I'll try later today.

my drivers side is perfect, it is the pax side; It will wipe perfect until it is vertical, then it misses the top 1/2 of the wiper length until the end of the stroke. new arms should be here tomorrow or friday at the latest.

so the best fix for rear wiper is to replace arm? mine never wipes the center of the blade area.

When mine is vertical it lifts up slightly away from the windshield and doesn't wipe in the center of the blade.

Skip, I used wiper snuggles for my rear wiper that was doing the same thing as yours and it resolved my issue, i didn't need to replace the arm. Here is the link :

If your handy, hardware stores have a whole selection of springs. Pop your stock springs out and you can match up some new ones at the store (even a bit thicker with more pull) and just pop them in.

I am quite handy, but Iíve never had any luck removing wiper springs. Do you have any tips?
