So I was cleaning my car and I am a freak about detail, so to ensure gallons of water dont fall outta the cracks when I start driving I clean them all. So I had my windsheid wipers extended off the windows for cleaning. Then I decided to open the hood to get the water outta the cracks the hood makes. BIG MISTAKE. THe wiper blade hit the hood and snapped a piece of the blade holder. The guy at bmw claims it helps hold the blade down at high speed and high crosswind. But anyways it was stupid. Good thing I have 5 coats of Klasse on my hood with sealent, it didnt make a mark at all. So the parts on order. $35

Same crap happened to me a couple weeks ago, only I had the wiper blade off. Shattered the windshield. SUCKED. You got off easy. I got pix of the windshield if you want proof. <sigh> cars are always costing something.

Windshield wipers are so outdated anyway, we need to come up with a new method

You could make millions. Like air blasts from compressor to blow the water off.

Done that so many times!

The only way i know that the wipers are up is when i open the bonnet (ok, ok "hood") it hits the wipers and wont go up any further!

They have never broken on me!

for all you that ever or HAVE a cracked windshield...check your insurance premium some of them cover it by paying a $50.00 deductable. I had State Farm years before and had a new windshield put on my supra. My brother just got a rock with flying wings attack his and cracked the hell outta it. With our current provider MERCURY same goes for them they replaced it for $50
