Yes, it very well could because of the new glass. If the new glass is is optically different because of a different tint, glass type, etc, the rain sensor won't work.

Have the fault codes read. Replace faulty items. Use only
genuine items as replacement as non-genuine are not always compatible with the OEM fitted CPU units. This results in the fault codes not cancelling out. There is probably something not connected when replacing the gear box.

New mercedes C200 with wiper blade shudder

Even though you say your C200 is new, the wiper blades could be defective. Also, there could be something on the windshield such as car wash residue or something splashed on the windshield during normal driving. If there is a streaky effect without clean wiping, I would suspect one of the causes I've noted

Water leaking unto front floor carpet when driving through rain

Check around the edges of the windshield for any place water could be forced into the car. Especially if the windshield has been replaced. Check around the cowl that covers your windshield wiper motor. Remove the cowl if possible to check for rust holes or separated seams in the metal. The blower motor intake for the cars HVAC (heater) is often under this cowl. Make sure water isn't getting in through there. If you find a leak around the windshield or a separated seam, some windshield urathane or clear bathroom caulking would work. If you find a rust hole in a non visible place affix a tin or metal patch over it using rivets or your choice of fastener. Welding is the best method. Then cover the patch with short strand fiberglass bondo or something else to seal out water. If you have a hole in the floor you could put a patch on it with rivets or weld, then tar the underside well and put rocker panel coating on the top.

I have a 2001 Cavalier, it's 2.2 automatic,and it's the LS. My headlights won't go from the high beam to low. And my windshield wipers will not move. My dad tried the fuses, and the motor...

Hm well sound like the acual switch itself might be the problem. The device that control the activation of those two things might be defective or just worn out. Replace the acual switch itself that activates those two items. There might be where your problem is coming from.

Hope this Helps!

Need to replace windshield in front

Start with a quote from a professioal team. The price of glass for windsheilds is way down and i was stunned how cheap it is.

Also, the windshield is a "structural member" of modern vehicles (yes, a 1999 saturn fits in that category). As a structural member, the windshield must be fastened to the vehicle so securely that it provides strength in the case of a crash or roll-over.

The more popular vehicles might get a new windshield installed for $125 - 200. Hardley worth the time and tools and adhesive to buy a used one and do it yourself.

Sorry it is kind of a "non-answer" but worth the effort to know before you start.

Good luck.
