Correct, nothing actually broke, it froze up from water intrusion and non use in outside, uncovered storage beside the house.
The pivot point (assembly that goes through the front cap and the wiper arm attaches to outside) froze up.

Out of curiousity, what was the difference between the standard and commercial grade ones? Pictures?

Heavier springs to keep the wipers from blowing off the windshield. Heavier pivot points and better finish.

I would think the install would be a bitch buried under the dash.

Actually access is pretty good.
Run generator out, then open two access panels and remove the generator air intake. After that it's just wiggling around to remove bolts and slide the unit out.
