TOJOS,
I'm going to take a WAG at this and suggest you take the parts to your local auto parts store and see if they can match them up.

Try this link, I'm not sure what parts you need but if you scroll thru what they have you may find it. Here is another link.

Go to www.stepvanparts.com They have all the parts for the Alpine wipers. Check out the online catalog and search for "wipers". Most extensive and complete selection. I have ordered alpine wiper parts from here. They sell every piece you might need.

WRV Supplier of Wipers/Parts

TOJOS.

Here is the OEM who supplied all the wiper systems for WRV.

Log on here:Diesel Equipment-Distributors of fuel injection products & repair services

I have bought, arms, hose kits, wipers, covers, etc. from them. They all match.

When you go to their site, let it roll and you will see several Alpines in a row.

TOJOS,
If you are not hung up on finding original parts, here's a solution:

Assuming that you have good pressure coming out of the rubber hose and that mounting it to your wiper arm is your only problem...

Go to Ace Hardware, Lowes or Home Depot and purchase a micro spray fitting as used in irrigation or mist cooling systems. Find one that will snugly fit into your washer hose.

Attach the hose to the wiper arm with a small nylon wire ties... allowing for any stretch and flex as the arm swings. Adjust the fitting to the best distribution of water by twisting it inside the hose to point at the windshield... increase the water flow by enlarging the hole with a heated pin, if necessary. They are inexpensive, so don't be afraid to experiment till you get it just right. Done.

Good luck,
Jim

My entire kits only cost $8.62 each (hose, sprayer, clips). Here's the diagram of parts for Wiper Technologies, used on Alpines.

Smile Window wiper washer spray nozzle kits

RJay, DaveandJaime, D&D Rich, takepride, Good man
Thanks for your help on those window wiper washer spray nozzles. I was able to get Alpine replacement parts for (both sides) Part# 19478 through Diesel Equipment-Distributors Company, Greensboro, NC. Price under $10.00 per kit, to inc: replacement hose, clips, tiedowns and spray nozzles. Thanks again, Tom

D & D Rich has it right. WRV purchased all their wiper systems from that company. They are whom you need to talk to. I replaced my wiper moter from them, great service, top notch tech support on it. Keep the link in the favorites list. You never know when you might need diagrams on how the wipers work.
Diesel Equipment Company - Central Warehouse Distributor of Diesel Fuel Injection Systems and Heavy Duty Electrical Products

This one takes you right to the wiper parts. Good Luck.
