the sad part is, all they have to do is spray it with water and turn the wipers on..LOL
2 good things can be learned from your post...Just got the car back. No diagnosis on the windshield wipers since they weren't able to duplicate the problem. Checked my dashcam footage. Tech drove car around. Tested wipers while stopped, and ran them while dry for a short period of time. Later, they ran it through a car wash multiple times and let the wipers run during the rinse cycle. The wipers appeared to slow down, then they were switched off, since the rinse cycle of the wash ended. It appears as if the wipers were never tested for more than 30 seconds, since they were limited by the rinse cycle duration of their car wash. Not noticing the issue. I was informed they were unable to replicate the issue.
Also I saw on camera during a different incident the tech was using the washer fluid system to lubricate the wipers, to test them. Everytime he would hit the washer fluid squirter it would re-trigger the wipers, and reset them. Just like how I reset them by switching modes on the wiper speed stalk. Thus, making the issue not appear.
All they needed to do was spray the windshield with a hose, and run the wipers. You'd see the issue appear, as I do when it is raining. I'm gonna try a new set of wipers and report back. As that was another dealers solution, and it worked apparently.
thats awesome.. honestly you are the first ST i've seen in 18k miles that has pulled up and acknowledged me.. most around here are oblivious. You gave me the thumbs up first and I came back past you returning the favor.. I was actually shocked to get a thumbs up! I even took to the NC fst facebook page trying to figure out who I saw..LOLThats me! Stock right now except for a BOV valve. I have the focusst sticker where yours is and an NC State alumni license plate frame.
i like to think my car looks a little more aggressive than the typical focus... but alas i'm in the same boat.. Ive had one wrx owner 10 months ago come past me in traffic and give a little romp on it. Other than that, i'm apparently flying below the radar..LOLYeah lol I remember that. Before you passed me, I thought you either couldn't see through my tint or were another oblivious ST driver. I have had one other guy acknowledge me but that's it. I don't think anyone on I-85 knows what an ST is ... I get passed by Integras & mustangs egging each other on etc.and nobody even looks my way.
P.S. your lights look sick in the rear view mirror.
Not my car in the wiper video I linked.Are you still having this problem? I was considering buying a used ST and I came across your post. I see from your video that you have a lot of water beading on the windshield. Do you use any kind of rain-x product or maybe you have excessive wax buildup from a car wash?
