2002 Buick Century Wiper Blade Parks Vertical TSB

There is a TSB on this problem....
02-08-43-002 MAY 02 Windshield Wipers - Park in Vertical Position
I don't know how helpful or knowledgeable the local dealer will be with this
problem. Does anyone have access to the text of the TSB to tell me in general what the problem and solution are?
Thanks, Dave

It's not a "rip-off" to install new wiper arms. The fellow that fixed your wipers also did a legit repair too. It's the hub that actually has the splines cast into it. The wiper arm does not have splines, but you create them when you install the arm and tighten the nut down. The wiper arm is made out of a softer pot metal, and it simply forms itself to the splines on the hub. You may be fine for a while, you may be fine forever...who knows. But for a dealership (who has to stand behind every repair), it's much simpler to install a new wiper arm, and torque it down properly. Pretty much guaranteed then that it will not fail any time soon.
If this fix that you just got fails, is that tech going to refund you your money and the tip? Doubt it, and he shouldn't, as the repair is one of those "hey, lets give this a shot and if it works, you are on your way for very little money" type of repairs.
