Windshield wiper cheap fix

March 5th, 2012 at 10:25 am

Just back from getting those windshield wipers with a life of their own fixed.

The dealer told me on the phone it sounded like the motor would need to be replaced at a tune of $350 to $400.

I brought it to my mother's mechanic, a Portuguese man who has worked solo on a busy corner of downtown for many years. I doubt the dealer would have tried tinkering with it, and would have just gone ahead and replaced it, but this mechanic was willing to do so and it's working fine now.

Cost: $60.

He couldn't tell me why it was running non-stop before and said he couldn't guarantee that the problem would not reoccur, and that if it did, the motor would then definitely need to be replaced. (Although his price for replacing the motor would be $230, still far cheaper than the dealer.)

But for now, it's fine, and I sure hope it lasts!
