    Wiper Arms 4788-gctid355093

    My windshield wiper arms are rusting. Although they still work fine, they look bad. Can anyone tell me where to find replacements for wiper arms? My 4788 is a 1998 or 1999.

    I am also looking for longer wiper blades and I have not been able to find longer ones in auto parts stores. It appears that longer blades will work as I have four to six inches of space above and below the ends of my current blades. Does anyone know where to find longer blades and/or are longer blades OK to use?

    Thanks in advance,

    Tim

        Sorry - I am traveling and do not have access to any files. I hope another BOC member can chime in here on what they used as I am not back home till Moday the earliest.

          Tim,

          I replaced one of my motors and some small parts.

          AM is very helpful, call them and tell them what you need. 1-541-327-3362.

          I asked about increasing the blade length and was told 28" was the max recommended for the motor.

          I really don't see how it would make that much difference to go to a 30 or 32" We don't have snow/ice loads to deal with. The resistance difference can't be that much.

          Butch at AM said he thought the original wiper arms were Dyna and may be replaced by Anco 301-3280. (Research this I didn't replace mine so it's not confirmed.)

          I cleaned my arms up and repainted them.

          I also installed Goodyear Assurance blades the newer type blades that have the support metal inside.

          These will bolt on where the OEM blade support fits.

          One of our members said he had a problem with this type of blade on his truck but I have them on three vehicles and the boat and they work fine.

                My pantograph arms were looking shabby also. I took them off, buffed them up with sand paper and steel wool, coat or two of rustoleum gray primer, and then several coats of flat black. Look good as new. For the blades, I took one to autozone and matched the length. The blades were 'bolted' to the arms. Easy fix, I ripped out the plastic automotive clips, and used the existing holes for the bolts. I went with the rainx as they were on sale.

                  It would be difficult to remove the arms without damaging them, so just get the new ones from the folks in Oregon, but have them in hand before you destroy old ones removing them. Usually takes a Dremmel tool. Don't screw up the motor shaft underneath.

                    Noticed that my wiper arms are also in need of work. This thread very helpful for parts but would like some advice on how to remove the arms. Is it just the two nuts on the top of the pantograph arms? Pictures attached.

                    Thanks in advance.

                      Yes, but under stand that you may have a hard time fing the type with nuts on top, go online and look for what you need, check fisheries supply, if they do bot have them, then contact the company that makes what they do have and see if they can supply them.
