You know, on the 2004-05 TSX, the wiper arms sure do get annoying to look at after a while. They are not horrible, but once you see them you can’t un-see them. I first really noticed them at the track where you are taking in so much information any bit of clutter or static really digs in and bugs you.
I decided to swap over to lower profile 2006-08 units.
Of course, the standard 2004-05 parts look perfectly normal, as just about every car has the same general design and layout.
Look how tall they are though…they come way up off the glass. Some people like to install some lower profile aftermarket blades that resemble 06-08 ones, but it is not a real solution because it keeps the standard arms in place.
Here you see a 2004-05 arm and blade against a 2006-08 assembly. The whole thing is so much lower profile.
Swapping them over is as simple as removing the cap at the end of the arm and getting a 17mm socket to remove the nut.
Behold the amazing disappearing wiper arms!!! I am sure it will wear off soon but the field of vision being uninterrupted really has me stoked to get behind the wheel. DEFINITELY a nice little mod to do.
These parts are available on Heeltoeauto.com for purchase!
