Windshield Wipers

Postby AlanH » Wed Mar 08, 2017 4:00 pm

Hi All,

My windshield wipers need replacing and I am having trouble finding replacements. I am trying to replace the blades and the piece that holds the blades and connects to the metal wiper arm. I have tried a couple from auto parts stores and they look like they should fit, they slide on but the don't grip the retain pin on the arm tight enough.

Does anyone have a source or a manufacturer that will work?

I was able to take my wipers into a local Napa Auto Parts store and they handed me 3 over the counter. Im away from the boat, but believe I can provide you the part number in 7-10 days. If you hace a Napa store close, give it a try.

You may do better at NAPA, but I took my wipers to West Marine and spent the big bucks and bought what looked to be an exact duplicate of the entire assembly.

Bob, could you share the product # with us that you bought at West Marine? And when you say "exact duplicate of the entire assembly", could you clarify what you bought and send a picture?

I gave up at the auto parts places, they were all to loose a fit. West Marine had some that looked like the would fit the arms but they didn't have 18 inch. I ordered some from Amazon and they fit perfect. Hopefully the link below will work. If not, they are AFI Polymer Marine Windshield Wiper Blades.
