Yes, the solution is to get the lamp from either the black pack cars (assuming that even though its still red it has a re-located washer nozzle outlet) or the clear ST spec CHMSL which should also aleviate the issue.

The new wings are longer and with the stock lamp the spray nozzle gets moved too far rearward to trigger the wiper to wipe until a lot of fluid gets sprayed at the screen, unlike with the stock wing.

The ST specifically has the nozzle moved forward to compensate for this.

I plan on picking up an ST stop lamp today at lunch.
