  1. General Discussion
    I wasn't sure which section to post this in so hopefully this is ok. I put Bosch Icon blades on my car about 3-4 years ago and they were absolutely great, but recently started to streak so I wanted to replace them. The Bosch site doesn't list the Icon series as compatible with my 2012 Cruze so I...
  2. Gen1 Service Issues
    Does anyone else have issues with their Gen 1 Cruze wipers? Particularly on the drivers side blade, my blade does not run smooth across the windshield. It's like it skips/judders. I have tried numerous wiper blades, including styles and brands, and they all seem to have issues. The ones that...

    This cold snap has wreaked havoc on my cruze. It's not as cold today as it was yesterday. Anyways my passenger side wiper arm doesn't move at all. By hand, I can easily slide up the wiper with no resistance. On the driver side you can't slide up the wiper as there is resistance. I even cleaned...
  6. Gen1 Service Issues
    So I'm trying to replace the wiper transmission linkage assembly on our Cruze and from what I gathered last night a number of people on this forum have had the same issue. I picked up the part today and started taking the old one out. The bolts and nut all came out easy enough but I can't seem...
  7. Gen1 Service Issues
    This morning the passenger side wiper stopped working on our 2015 Cruize. I took the necessary parts off to get to the problem at hand. Below I have an imgur album link to show where the issue is. The rod popped off of the lever that drives the passenger side wiper blade. The problem is I have...

    My driver side windshield wiper stopped working tonight. I discovered that the linkage separated at the wiper arm. Do I need to replace the entire linkage or is the bushing replaceable?
  9. Gen1 Service Issues
    I had to replace the linkage assembly in a 2012 Cruze LS today. The one I purchased said it fit my car, it looked the same, and all the bolts lined up to the correct locations. Now, I've noticed that the wipers, while functional, don't seem to cover as much of an arc as before when reattaching...
  10. Gen1 Appearance/Body Tutorials
    Finally fixed my Gen 1 ‘14 Diesel wiper nozzle post-nasal drip issue today. $22 on Amazon LINK. NOTE: order took about a month to arrive, apparently ships from Korea even though packaging shows AC Delco part. Since many Gen 1 folks are out of warranty, it’s getting less-likely GM will fix...

    Gotta love it when new ideas and innovations come to an otherwise tried-and-true product. The Kimblade Wiper Blade is trying to bring an end to crappy, streaking, chattering wipers once and for all, and from what we can see they just might be onto something...
  12. Gen2 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior
    I have been looking for a rear wiper blade for MY 2017 hatch. All I see are GM only parts. Does anyone know of an aftermarket one that I can get from the autoparts store? I haven't taken it off and took it into one yet but I am thinking this is most likely what I will need to do.
  13. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hello all, I need to refill my windshield fluid because this old one that the guy was using who I purchased from seems to leave irritatingly white marks on the spots where my wipers do not reach (top right corner and left hand side of the windshield looking out). Because the wiper fluid is low...
  14. Gen2 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior
    Well my new Cruze 2018 freaked me out today when I turned on the wipers for the first time. They wipe from the center! The old movement is the first crude image. The second is how they work now ... like a bus. When did this become the norm? I'm just curious.

    What is your favorite brand and why? Also what size for the 2014 Cruze Lt ?
  16. Gen1 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior
    I own a 2012 Cruze Eco purchased new in October 2011. About one year later, I had to replace the windshield wiper blades, as I live in the Pacific Northwest. However, I could not just buy the blades, I had to purchase new wipers. I have tried different makes of new wipers over the years, but...
  17. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hello All, Looks like something ate a piece of my Windshield Wiper fluid line and I am going to need to replace it. Unfortunately, the cut is deep in the engine bay and I have no idea how to reach it. Here is a picture of the washer fluid tank, and about as clear as I could get it and here is...

    Has it been over a year since you last replaced the wiper blades on your daily driver? Do you notice smearing and streaking on your windshield? Are the wiper blades on your fun summer vehicle dried out and ready to crumble? If so, now is the perfect time to inspect and replace your worn out...

    Time to replace! The rubber is hanging off!
  20. Gen1 Service Issues
    I have a 2012 LTZ and the wipers are making a very annoying noise. The blades seem to be skipping across the windshield. It could be that the bolt holding the arms is loose. But I cannot figure out how to tighten it. Does anyone know how to fix this? It can't be the wipers as they were recently...
