Wasn't on the bike, unfortunately.  I had to pick up a chair.  Was in the RAV4.

So you weren't in your Prius?  Your lucky!!!  I heard there is a new road rage thing going on in Prius drivers now... if they can't overcome traffic anxiety, they may suffer Priuspism!  :o

It was a yes or no question, Sir

My windshield wipers broke on my 91 Dakota.  They just stopped in mid wipe.  I hate it when that happens.  Now I have to fix them.  You don't want to know what I did to my Rav4 in trying to fix it.

Good luck getting them out or even getting the cowling off.  My 93 Dakota was so rusted up nothing wanted to move and that was years ago.  Made me crazy, it did.

Good truck otherwise.

It took a few minutes but I've gained access to the wiper beast.  Main plastic thingy that holds the linkage to the motor popped off.  Sprayed some white grease on the pivot and reattached the thingy using a small clamp to push it on.  Seems ok now.  I spent a good 20 minutes vacuuming out the tree crap.

Reminds of a co-worker yrs. ago that hooked up some string to the non-working wipers on his mid-60's Buick Skylark. Had the string pass thru the vent windows & steered w/ his knee while alternately pulling the string to operate the wipers. Drove that car for a couple of yrs. w/ that set-up.... ::)

Let an old dodge truck rust long enough, and they turn into awesomeness rat rods.

There's only two types of plastic parts on your car.  Those that have broken and those that are about to break.

These  :censored: TV shows that recap nearly the exactly same segment after a commercial.  It's like they think you've forgotten everything.  I'm old and have CRS but I'm not that bad.  If you add that in to a half hour show with the commercials, you're probably only getting about 15 minutes of new material.   :censored: cheapskates!

Cling wrap....I can't make that  :censored: work!  I pull it off and it immediately clings to itself.  I don't know why I even try.
