    My 01 F250 has a bad habit of getting snow and ice under the wiper arms and lifting them off. Any help on fixing this major PIA

    That's what snow brushes are for. Get out and bang the frozen stuff off! That's what I do.:realmad:

    Glad I could help!:D

    Not really a lot you can do .the snow melts off the window and freezes at the base and it builds up.

    Try FF on the wiper arms.

    You didn't tell him to put Fluid Film on the wiper arms??????????

    Replace the wiper arms (not the blades) Maybe the spring is so worn out that there is no downpressure towards the windshield. I rarely have that problem.

    ventshade makes a cowl panel cover that keeps the snow out of the wiper cowl area. I had this on my 03 and 04 ford f350 and it works awsome, looks are kinda ****** but works great
