The patient: '88 FJ62, hers. The problem: The wipers keep "skipping", you know that annoying "hop" as they wipe back and forth when there's not enough water on the windshield. But they do it no matter what. The blades are new, infact I just went ahead and bought all new Toyota blade rails instead if refills -- the other ones looked bad. So, could it be the springs in the arms that's getting weak? I just can't see what the problem is, everything lays on the windshield nicely and they still skip. ??? It's driving my wife nuts and I need to fix it Any help appreciated. Jody.
