I agree, I love our electric ones! They are great! We purchased ours from IBP, and once we figured out the grounding issue, they have performed wonderfully. I don't miss the Slap, SSSSLLLAAP, SssslAAP, ssssssssllllappp, of the old air wipers. We did rebuild them, and they got better, but they still damaged one of our windshields.

God bless,

John

Make sure you get the high pressure/high flow electric pump, or it'll just dribble out your spray nozzles.

Those electric pumps are not created equal.

happy coaching!

   At the same time I changed to electric pumps(separate pumps and controls for each wiper arm). I added "wet arm nozzles" replacing the OEM "below the windshield " nozzles. The wet arm nozzles attach to the wiper arm and lay the water right next to the wiper blade.
    Only thing I need to do is find a couple small check valves for the hoses. They drain all the way back to the reservoir, so it takes a few seconds of pumping before I have water at the nozzles.  Jack
