Dennis - I just replaced my wiper arms, fluid nozzles and arm caps. I bought everything from Instrument Sales 800-333-7976. The 28" inch wiper arms were $18 each. The part number for the wiper arms are:

Wexco 13728
UT 52149
Anco 50-28
Trico 68-281

I am attaching the Wexco catalog that I think has every part you should ever need for the windshield wiper system. The wiper arms you need are on page 37. Page 51 has the spray jets and page 52 has the arm caps.

----- The catalog is to big to post. I scanned the three pages you need. After reading the attachment the part number are not readable for the following. Spray jets are Wexco #200955 and arm caps are Wexco 200342.

FYI ... The tubing they provide is only 4' long and insufficient to replace both wiper hoses. I also observed that the tubing didn't seem to be very snug on the nozzle fittings. I purchased an adequate length of 1/8" hose from NAPA which improved the fit (small cost). Make sure you leave ample length on each hose to prevent pulling which can damage those nozzles.

Another alternative is to go to your local NAPA, O'Reilly, Advanced, Pep Boys, etc.... auto parts store, most 28" wiper will work with a minor modification. Remove the mounting block by drilling out the rivet and use the existing bolt to mount it.

All Alpines do not have the same wiper systems. Earlier Alpines were designed AM Equipment Windshield Wiper Systems & Durable DC Motors, who make quality wiper system. As I remember they had two motors and worked good. I had no problems when I had my 2000 Alpine.

On my 2007 someone else designed them and they tried to use one motor for two long blades. I tried several different blades and nothing worked very good. In my opinion, the blades were too long for one motor.

I talked to Butch at AM Equipment and told him my problem. Even though, it wasn't their system anymore on Alpines, he told me what I needed to convert it over.

Arm 301-3300
Arm 30" Pantograph, BL, Medium Duty, Wet, 1.25" Bridge

Framed Blade 302-1200
Blade 20" Flex, 91 series

I do not need those long blades and I can see fine. The shorter blades work a whole lot better.
