you are more apt to get something that is broke, than not.

my motto is: If it ain't broke, don't be Fixing it until it is Broke. :x

Yours might work for another 20 years, it might fail tomorrow. Personally, I would just leave it. If and when it does fail, it's not that big a job to get to it to replace, and doesn't require removing the windshield.
