Re: One windshield wiper not working

No never had this problem before. IMO you should be able to repair the linkage, but you never know until you find out what exactly broke.

Re: One windshield wiper not working

Your linkage is broken. Remove the wiper arms and cowl panel between the hood and windshield and you will see it.

Re: Swap 500 6 sp into Freestyle possible.

Rather than switch out all the lock cylinders in the car with the donor's, couldn't you get a brand new key blank made with the car's original key, and then using the donor car's key use the key programming sequence to program the new keyblank to match with the donor PCM? transponder keyblanks are ...

Re: Power boost switch?

All FS that have a CVT will have the switch AFAIK. What exactly does the switch do? AFAIK all it really does is force the CVT into a lower "gear" but I know, on my FS, it was like hitting ludicrous mode on a Tesla. It made the FS *very* aggressive on acceleration in comparison to "normal" mode. It w...

Re: Speaker Upgrade With Original Head Unit No Sub

I love Polk speakers. I have been using them on my cars and my home for many years. They have the most natural sound to my ears, and they are not terribly expensive.

Re: Rear diff is impossible to remove.

Re: CVT Issue

Certainly changing the fluid/filters should be your first try at fixing it. The fluid turns kind of brown when it gets old/dirty. If it's pink, that would worry me.
