Many used items in our picture(s) have been cleaned and/or bead blasted prior to being photographed to show condition and detail. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned. We do not retake pictures each time a used item sells. Pictures are a good indicator of what you will receive, but not all used parts age the same. On high dollar parts, email us and we can send a few pictures of the actual part available.
"Core" Items: If we use the word "Core" in the title of the product, the item has been deemed rebuildable, but has not been rebuilt. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned.
The hinges on these original arms tend to get worn out which will cause irregular movement and can eventually burn up your wiper motor or bind up the linkage. If your wipers do not move in tandem, this part is the culprit! To test if your unit is worn grasp the driver side wiper arm and move the arm back and forth gently. If the passenger arm does not react to your every movement this assembly needs to be replaced. It is an easy to replace part in that you can remove the cowl panel behind your hood to access it. From our experience, 9 out of 10 cars need to have this replaced, the exception would be select cars from states that see minimal precipitation. These used units are tested for minimal wear.
