    Anyone here have any trouble with long term use of the orange Rain-X windshield wash causing your washer fluid light to come on? I did some searching and it seems that this orange Rain-X liquid can leave a residue that coats the sensor. It sounds like hot water flushed through the reservoir is...

    I was getting my oil changed at Jiffy Lube the other day, and the service technician was going over all the VW recommended servicing and I had remembered that my wipers were getting pretty bad and needed to be replaced. Usually, i'd just go to autozone and replace them myself (more often then...

    Curious to see if anyone has tried these. I saw them at Target at a good price and was thinking about trying them out. They look like the poor version of the Euro wiper conversion that sells for $100+

    Just giving my PW'ers a heads up. Especially for people like me who are tired of all the streaks across the windshield and chattering. I don't work for Pep-Boys, or have anything to do with them... I just shop there. These are great blades... Feb 15-21 RainX Wiper Blades INSTALLED FREE! are...

    EDIT: so heres another thought. the Rain-X wiper blades were on sale at meijer. they fit 98% of all cars... blah blah blah. i got em for 6 bucks each but they freaking suck. they dont connect well at all, and while a 21 works (kinda) on the driver side, the 19 doesnt even fit on the passenger...

    My brother's GLX has rain-sensing windshield wipers. Has anyone with a GLX used Rain-X on their windshield? If so, does it "confuse" the rain sensor at all?

    I've been using the Zymol car wash for the last several years, and it seems it may have been discontinued...? I've been to 6 auto parts stores and WalMart and noone has it... there's not even a space for it on the shelf... So i picked up a bottle of the RainX... what's with the yellow balls of...
