Got the G6 out and getting ready for the Dustoff next weekend.  It didn't like sitting out the winter.  The wipers didn't work.  Popped the hood and the motor is running, no wiper movement.   It's in the transmission ( arms that attach the motor to the wipers) Was told you can't find bushings and have to buy the entire trans =  80.00.   Oriellys came through with new bushings and lifetime warranty, = 8.00.   

2 pins hold in the plastic cover.  Check to see how rubber ends install before removing. Some padding is glued on so be careful when pulling out.  3 bolts hold the wiper motor and trans in place.  After removing the only bushing that was bad.  Was from motor to arms.  remove /replace (hint...drop new bushing into a cup of boiling water for a couple minutes to soften)  install/pack with grease and reconnect.   Start all 3 bolts before tightening.  They are on rubber bushings so don't overtighten...Justa snug em. Now turn the key on and let system cycle making sure the post are moving back N forth.  Re install plastic cover and wiper arms. Congrat's you justa saved 72.00 plus the cost of labor somewhere.  Took me about 20 min, but was cleaning everything before putting back together.  11 years of dirt under there.

WE  got alot of cleaning done on the cars yesterday.  After a rainy start, turned out to be a nice day.  Also good for the Detroit Gran Prix.

Unless you are the Pace Car Driver in the first turn of the first pace lap !!! Mark Reuss - GM Executive VP - crashes the pace car (a 2019 ZR1) into the wall!!!

OMG... it was funny.  Glad nobody was hurt, but the embarrassment will last a life time and on National TV.

What are the odds that Mark Reuss will now permanently have the nickname "Crash" through out the halls of GM????
