    Re: heated washer rebate

    Finished the AlphaTherm installation in about 30 minutes yesterday. The only issue was that the supplied connectors from AlphaTherm were not compatible with the existing GM washer tubing so I had to substitute 1/4" to 1/8" adapters. One is visible in the attached photo connecting heater to the nozzle tubing.

    Bottom line: Heated washer working again and $23.20 in my pocket.

    Re: heated washer rebate

    Thanks for posting the pic and tip. I was getting ready to install my replacement windshield washer heater and also noticed the difference in the tubing size between the replacement kit and the stock washer tubing. Off to get a few 1/4" to 1/8" barb adapters.

    Re: heated washer rebate

    Hmm...


    FWIW, I removed the 60-amp fuse (see recall bulletin p. 9-10) and coupled the washer fluid "in" and "out" hoses to bypass the OEM heater module BEFORE taking my car in for the recall service. So afterward when installing AlphaTherm I was able to reuse the OEM fuse, remove the hose coupler and reuse the OEM hoses, and save the replacement hoses for future use if ever neeeded. This might be the best option for anyone who plans to install the AlphaTherm unit, but has not yet had the dealer recall service performed.

    I agree. That sounds like the best course of action for anyone who has not had the recall done.

    Re: heated washer rebate

    So is the OEM tubing 1/4 or 1/8 ?

    On my 2009, the factory tubing is 1/8" or close to it.
