#190 of 223 RainX Washer Fluid w/ Bug Remover
Nov 10, 2009 (4:56 am)
Has anyone tried the RainX Washer Fluid with Bug Remover? I have used the regular washer fluid for years & love it. Then I bought the Bug Remover by mistake. It ATE the paint off my hood and roof, clogged the washer lines and burned up the pumps (front & rear). anyone else have a similar experience?

After reading some of the comments here, I will be taking the RainX I purchased back. Im glad I didn't use the stuff. Thanks.

Wait, before you take your Rain-X back. I actually LOVE their wiper blades and the windshield cleaner and especially love the REGULAR washer fluid. So, just wanted to let you know that it was just the washer fluid with the bug remover stuff in it.

I just use the stuff in the yellow bottle, and it works great for me.
In fact it's about time for me to re-apply. That just reminded me.

Can anyone tell me why the Rain-X windshield wipers DO NOT WORK on the passenger side?
I have a 2004 Volvo S80 2.9 liter.

I have learned that aftermarket windshield blades never work as well as the OEM ones do.
After the experiences I have had with Rain-X, I would NEVER use their blades!

Well you might want to try these as they come with a 5 year warranty. I've installed it on a 2002 Denali, 2005 Titan, and 1999 C5. They all lasted over 5 years with no tears and work like new with cleaning every couple of months. These will outlast the vehicle.
And their advertised silicone based grease works like a charm to preserve your weatherstripping. No tears on those either.

I prefer those flexblades - they look very streamlined.

Unfortunate for me those weren't available when I initially bought mine. I'm wondering how that silbead works in comparison to rain x. Seems to be an unnecessary addon since the blade leaves a coating.
#199 of 223 rain x on window molding?
Apr 22, 2010 (7:08 am)
Hey, I washed my Toyota 4runner with Rain X wash and wax 3 days ago. Yesterday I noticed my windshield molding (weatherstripping) coming loose and last night driving down the hwy it just about completely came off. I don't want to jump the gun if these things are unrelated, but how often does windshield molding lose its grip? Especially with that type of sealant. Now I have to get the molding replaced and I hope they don't break the glass when removing it. Plus, I have tar-like sealant on my paint just above the window and I have to figure a way to get that off without hurting the paint (hopefully with turtle wax bug and tar).
