    heated wipers

    I have the winter package so my wipers have a heating element on them. Has anyone changed theirs yet? How much was it for you at the dealer?

    Heated wipers? Who makes those? I bought the Subaru Winter wipers from the dealer, but they are not heated, just wrapped in rubber to prevent ice from forming inside the little crevices.

    the 2004 premium package includes moonroof, spoiler, heated seats, heated side view mirrors, and heated wipers. Its cool to have them be frozen solid and watch the ice crack off.

    This is correct. The heating elements are in the windshield. Look closely at the wipers resting spot in the glass.

    Ok cool, I see it. I assumed the metal lining on the wipers themselves was the heating element. Now I can get some from autozone instead of spending $$$ for factory ones.
