One of the rubber wiper blades started to slip out of position on my 2004 Diplomat. Finding a replacement became a task for me in a rural area. All the 28" blades had the wrong connectors. Anyway I found a universal blade packaged with every kind of connector you can imagine. I'm sharing this so some of you so you won't go through the search I went through. The blade is a Trico Model 67-281, this is the entire blade, not just the rubber rib.

Good info, thanks. It is definitely a good idea to write that number down somewhere for the future.

My '06 has the 32" blades, and I joked with the dealer that they need to put a chair next to the cash-register for people to fall into when they find how much those little fellas cost.

Thanks!
Ron

I found 2 28" blades at walmart for $7.00 each. I had to drill out the rivet holding the connector and made the hole bigger,but it fits and works great.

They are held on by a small nut and bolt.The blade are the same width and size as the originals.I didnt realize they were differant till I tried to put them on.After I got done drilling the hole out I compared the old and new and viola, they are the same.

Frankie:
The nut and bolt ensures they stay in place...most everytime I try to jurry-rig something, it usually comes apart at some point. I haven't tried to replace my blades yet, and are not even sure what size they are..I store my DIP at a storage yard..next time I'm out there I will measure them.

Duct tape in bailing wire should be a standard for every toolbox.

I just went ahead and replaced both of my blades while I was at it. I found the blades at Walmart as previously mentioned, but, I had some some concerns about drilling out the holes. It seemed to me, the area left was going to be too close to the outside of the blade potentially weakening the blade housing.

If it moves and shouldn't - Duct-Tape.
If it doesn't move and should - WD40.
