    Has anyone else noticed that the windshield wipers on mustangs suck a$$? I know that mine do. They wipe kind of slow, and they also don't do a very good job clearing rain away, even with new wiper blades. I was just wondering if anyone knows any tricks to get them to work well.

    put some Rain X on your windshield and get the teflon blades that should help a lot

    +1 for rainx, You know what drives me nuts though, the back window, cant see out of it when it rains. Almost wish there was a wiper back there.

    I guess that i am used to the wipers on my old probe gt. Those blades were a coupple inches bigger, and the arms performed better in heavy rain. The wipers on my stang are sluggish and weak. Mabey i need to replace my wiper motor?

    Perhaps a motor swap is in order.
    I would also swap out the blade as mentioned above. Not a huge fan of RaniX though.

    Rainex is nice, or you can just wax your windowshield works good too.

    Its funny this thread came up now cus I just did my windshield this past weekend and I went to the car wash yesterday and when I got out on the road I did not even turn on my wipers, the water rolled right off the glass in a matter of seconds. By the time I was doing 55 or 60 the glass was completely dry. Rain X rules
