    Anyone have loud motor on their windshield wipers? I was sitting at a stop light today and everything was quiet and my wipers sound like they are straining to move, and yes it was raining. I just wondered if this was common.

    Check out my build thread.
    My motors have been noisy as long as I can remember. They seem to be most noticeable when I first turn them on, then seem to quiet down a little bit.

    Maybe you need to turn the music up some.

    see thats the thing, if it wasn't in between songs I would have never heard it. And if I am going down the street the engine drowns out the noise. I was just wondering if it was common. Just one of those things.

    Totally normal due to lack of insulation and loud wiper motors. After 5 years, I don't hear it anymore (just like the heater fan chirp). Either I'm used to it, or my hearing is going.
