The pin that holds the spring broke and cracked the casting at the base of the wiper arm. I want to replace the arm, actually, I’ll replace both. They are pantograph arms (two linked arms to keep wiper blade perpendicular). Has anyone put on new arms? If so, did you get them on line? Do you have mfg. name and part #?

Any help will be appreciated.


Thanks, BillG

I agree. I had been using Mill Supply for wiper parts, but the last thing I bought was a pair of wiper arms. They lift in the wind.

I have the wind lift problem also. They don't wipe at the end of their strokes.
What if anything can be done to remedy this?

Does driving slower in the rain help? I have also seen fins for the back of wipers that help push the wiper against the windshield.

There was no lifting issue with the OEM arms. I plan to reinstall those if I can find them after the flood.

It does it starting at 30MPH.

My pantograph wiper arms are going to be replaced soon. When I got this Breakaway, one wiper was in the middle and the other was at the side. never liked this so I reversed the arm on the actuator to bring that wiper back to the middle.

Both arms are getting OLD and high mileage, read sloppy. I drive over 70 MPH all the time, no issue, when I replace I will redo all and report back.

First I have to get the electric awning up and on!
