Did a search but found nothing. Is there any way to get rid of the pause (seems like a half second) between cycles on both the hi and low speeds? Considering I live in a wet climate it's really annoying to have wipers that take so long between cycles that they can't keep the windsheild clear, esp on the freeway. Getting to the point I'll just take the SD instead if it's raining.

No one has any ideas? Or perhaps any idea what I'm talking about[:)] Wouldn't be the first time you know....

Is the pause when the blades reach the bottom.

If so, it could be that they need removing and resetting.

Remove the two arms, then turn the wipers on and off. After the motor has stopped, replace the arms where they should be at the bottom of the windscreen and give it a try.

That's the only suggestion I can come up with.

Thanks! I'll give it a try. If only the 126 didn't make it such a pain to deal with the wipers. But it sure does look good with them hidden.

Make sure your wipers are tight. One of mine fell of and now I have to look at a semicircle scratch on my windshield. :)
