2009 Audi A4 Avant: Something Is Missing Here
October 19, 2010
I learned the hard way that our A4 is missing its rear wiper. Turned it on during a recent rain shower (that's about all we get around these parts) and I got nothing but a shrill scraping sound out back.
No one seems to know what happened to the wiper. Torn off in a car wash? Stolen by rubber thieves? It's a mystery. Just went to the dealer though as picked up a new one for a not surprising $17. Looks like it just snaps right in, we'll see. Oh, and we're working on new tires, that post will be coming shortly.
