Windshield wiper arms

I goofed up and put my garage door down with my arm out to change the blade. I found this company for the replacement, should anyone else need to replace:

31 1/2" Pantographic Wet Arm

and these are the blades:

28" Heavy Duty Wiper 37-28

Replacing the drivers side is a pain, in that the left bolt as you are looking at the assembly, is just in front of the moving arm. It is not hard to get the nut off, but a pain to get back on. I could not easily maneuver to get the nut started. I ended up welding a short piece of metal to the nut to hold it in place.

I don't know for sure. The length is measured from the attachment point to the top of the articulating arm.

Thanks for the link to the blades. I need to replace mine. Last year I replaced the rubber inserts but the blades are worn now.

Koop, I have on several occasions replaced the blades with standard Bosch or Trico blades from NAPA. I do modify them by drilling out the pivot pins so I can insert the bolt as the pivot. It is an easy modification.

Same as DrDave--nice to find the "right" blades for the Alpine but have gotten use to modifying the std models from NAPA or Walmart.....
