For any of you living in the colder parts of the US, do you have this problem. We had the truck parked outside over night and the temperature dropped to
-10 degrees celsius. When I next went out in the Armada the rear wiper wouldn't even come into contact with the window...guess the spring in the arm was frozen. Any ideas on how to deal with this..besides moving to Florida.

Did you try stretching the arm out from the Mada and then snapping it back? The cold shouldn't be doing anything but there may be some ice jamming up the spring. This should loosen it. ;)

I know this is a REALLY old thread but I just noticed this on my brand new 2011 Armada tonight. It's about 20 degrees ferinheight out here in Milwaukee. I had just picked up my Armada from the dealer because of issues with the rear liftgate that they have been working on since I bought it. The car had been parked outside for a bit and I suspect the cold did this but I've never had it happen to me on my old Pathfinder.

Is there something I can do to prevent this? I suspect it will happen a lot with the cold weather we get here. I suspect either a spring that has somehow frozen or just crappy OEM blades.
