Do the spray head on your windshield wipers keep falling apart? I found a good replacement a a local auto parts store. It is ANCO Stk. No. 48-03. This kit, you will need two, replaces the old one and is much better designed. It is made by Federal-Mogul Wiper products in Michigan City, IN. The bar code lable numbers are 37577 95758 1. It will probably be an "order" type part but mine came the next day after 1:00.

Yes, mine kept falling apart. However, Super Glue fixed the problem. I was concerned the fix was too permanent. It's good to know the part is easily found.

Here a little more information about wiper products. Don’t know if this is for all models but it worked on my Pace Arrow.

If you’re Wiper arms have 2 screws to secure the Blade with. There is an adapter kit #48-17 that ANCO Wiper Products makes. It mounts to your present arms with new screws that are included. One kit does both arms.Then you can purchase the standard hook type blades. Also the Michigan City plant is probably close to closing. In the late 80’s early 90's there were over 1500 employee’s. Today there are probably less than 130. While it was family run there were plenty of jobs and work. Down sizing and moving jobs south of the border after The Big Corporate took over has taken it from the biggest employer in the county to zip. I gave it up in May of 2006 just short of 45 years service at age 64. The Wife is still hanging in with 28 years. She can retired in August.

Some posts have up to 5 lines in what I presume is the signature area. But I can only fit 3 lines in.
