wiper blade on vacation

On vacation today in Rocky Mountain NP today. It was pouring rain and hail at 12,000 ft elevation and my driver side windshield wiper fell off and was run over a lot before we could retrieve it. We have a 07 Pacifica with what was a 26" Bosch wiper blade. The two screws that held the bracket that held the bosch wiper blade onto the wiper arm were gone. I can't
find and name on the wiper arm.

Please share any info you have on this. Do you know what brand arm and
wiper were the OEM? I need the 2 1/4" long bracket that is secured to the wiper arm with 2 small screws that thread into the wiper arm. This bracket also requires one nut and bolt that attaches the wiper blade.

We'll be on the road tomorrow and need to find these parts asap as Colorado is having afternoon storms.

Thanks

Ace is the place

I just replaced both wiper blades on our '05 Dolphin. I went to the auto parts store and asked for a blade with a hole in the middle and got two of the next cheapest blades and arms. Just like the threads here on the National forum indicated - I dropped and lost one of the nuts for the shouldered tiny bolt that attaches the blade arm to the wiper mechanism. I went to my local Ace store after I drilled out the rivet that was in the middle hole and took the blade arm with me. I got a couple of stainless steel bolts that fit the hole and nuts and a 1/2 inch nylon spacer that the bolt fit through to keep the arm-mechanism attachment from collapsing and let me tighten the nut nice and firm. I used a piece of 220 grit sandpaper in order to shorten the nylon spacer so that it fit in the gap in the wiper arm.

Seems to work great.

Good luck.

The OEM blade and assemblies were made by Denso. I used to have a link to their catalog, but lost it when my desktop puked. I also used to lay a blanket below my blades when I took them off for the summer. I now just cover the blades with split plastic conduit. My wiper blades were LA060112-3650, Blade Assembly LA160100-8780, if that helps any.

Dunner, You mention that you cover the blades with split plastic conduit. Any other specifics on the plastic conduit? I mean maybe a pic?

It's just that corrugated split plastic that you cover wires with... available at most auto parts stores and comes in various colors.

MBMYERS, that Denso link should have your part. I recently replaced the whole assembly., as mine was week and would not hold the blade straight. They also offer individual parts of the assembly. If you are near Denver their should be a parts house that carries Denso .
