Wiper arms...dealer only option?
« on: February 15, 2008, 11:04:36 PM »
So I was out today trying to figure out why my pass. wiper sucks...well the blade is zip tied to the arm because the clip for the arm is GONE!!!  >:(

Is the only place to get a replacement arm the dealer?

I bent a wiper arm on my old GT Coupe about 15 years ago.  (dont ask)  I was able to get a replacement from Shokan pretty cheap.  I'd try them.

The clip that holds the arm to the pin?  That can come with a new blade assembly (not just an insert.)

um yeah, I didnt even think of that, if it is just the clip that is missing and the metal arm is OK, then just get a new wiper blade assembly.

I will take a pic tomorrow and post. I think its a piece of the metal arm and not the blade assembly. Could be wrong though.

Eeewww...Yeah, our wipers suck balls.

The short answer is "no, the dealer is not the only option. I'd do the Aero wiper conversion. But here's ECS Tuning's page of all their options.
