Default Freaking rear wiper arm keeps getting broken off in the car wash

Is there ANYONE selling a METAL one that won't snap off in the car wash? I've been through THREE of them in the last 6 months...

Guy walks into the doctor and says it hurts when I poke my self in the eye.. Doctor says, okay then.. dont poke your self in the eye.

I dunno man, like if a car wash damaged my car once I'd never take it back to that wash again.. if it damaged it 3 times, well do you really think the wiper is the problem here?

The car wash I go to puts on a disposable plastic sleeve on the rear wiper to protect it.

How about instead of telling me how to live as a human being, Trey answering the question I posed instead of showing off how brilliant your brain is. Nobody gives a **** that you're smarter than me. You're not proving anything other than that you can't read a question and provide an answer.

Since you're so brilliant, it snows here, it rains here, it's cold here a lot. I have to wash my car sometimes twice a day. I drive my car commercially for executives. I can't carry around a hand washing kit and a tank of water for the purpose, just to please some douchey, smarter-than-you troll on the internet.

I had one break once. You can buy replacements online that work. About $20. Try Amazon or EBay. Maybe tape it down with racer tape to go thru the wash.

Limo/executive SUV driver, thanks. I make a bit more than an Uber driver.

This is the only one of my vehicles that has issues. I'd think someone as smart as you would know that!
