I just moved to South Lake Tahoe, CA from the SF Bay Area.
I am new to a climate where it snows and things freeze solid.
During our last snow / ice storm my wipers froze solidly to windshield
down in their little hidden well.
On older vehicles I know to:
1) Extend windshield wiper arms so they are sticking out at 90 degrees from windshield.
Or if the arms don't allow this;
2) Flip the wiper blade assembly away from the windshield, so the wiping edge is
not in contact with the windshield.
What the heck to we do with the C-Max to prevent freeze up?
I know now to make sure the wiper control is in the off position...
Not sure how to keep ice and snow from building up in the well
and freezing everything in place.
I am open to suggestion (other than park in a garage) :-)
