So I go to my car and notice something is wrong with the windshield wipers on the headlights. On closer inspection, I notice that the wiper blades are gone, the wipers themselves are bent, and the right wiper is partially torn on the lower mount.<p>Ron White is echoing in my head, and I don't really care about their purpose, but really? Someone was so jealous and bothered by my 3 inch wipers that they decided to tear them off?!?!?!<p>Right wiper arm and blade are about 50, left blade is 13 on myswedishparts.com. Fantastic.<p>I suppose its good that it wasn't keyed, for whatever thing in my life someone thought I did intentionally to offend them, but this is rediculous.

Re: Really? WTF! (BeerEngineer)

That sucks man. What a useless expenditure now, to repair something like that because of some a-hole.<p>I'll say it again, I hate people. Seriously, why do people have to screw with some else's stuff?<br>

Re: Really? WTF! (T5 for Life)

luckily, these will save me about 40 bucks...but do I want to just make sprayers out of them...<p><A HREF="http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/VOLVO-S60-HEAD-LIGHT-WIPER-ARMS-PASSAGER-GOOD-USED-PAIR_W0QQitemZ280319767406QQcmdZViewItem" TARGET="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors...wItem</A><p>of course, if anyone has removed their wipers and wants to make some quick money, I'm open to offers.

Re: (fightinchunk)

looks like just non-R. Carbon Fiber Werks....product request? Probably not economically reasonable.

Hate to say it, but at this point I'd just go ahead and remove them. I was never a big fan of the light wipers.<p><A HREF="http://www.vparts.se/sv/artiklar/volvo/s60/ovriga-produkter-10/tackpluggar-s60r_v70r.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.vparts.se/sv/artikl....html</A> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (m3nt0s)

I'm with you on that. If anything a sprayer would be much nicer and more concealed. Is there a non-sweedish site to get those covers at? I did the conversion and it's about $55 US so that's not too bad.

Re: (Slvr S60R)

those look identical to the ones george has that are explicitly NOT for the R.<p><A HREF="http://www.vivaperformance.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=562" TARGET="_blank">http://www.vivaperformance.com...d=562</A><p>So it's pretty much 50-75 bucks either way, so which one is less hassle? Changing the wipers. I'd probably have to take the bumper off to remove the headlight wipers and the motors and hoses.<p>Still, I don't know what kind of pressure those nozzles generate, so maybe there is a sprayer option.

Re: Really? WTF! (BeerEngineer)

this is why I role like this: looks a little weird without them, but I feel better. I broke one motor because there was a lot of snow on one of the headlights, and I forgot to clean them. So I have only one working headlight wiper. I decided to take them off.. Looking back, I should have just left them unplugged.<p> <IMG SRC="http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/904/0416091554.jpg" BORDER="0">

And by antics I mean within 1 month the DEA and FBI found a quarter million in cash and about 200 kilos of coke in their suv. This is in the middle of suburban buffalo, where all the old people live. So anyways, It could have been their kids running around late at night.
