wiper blade replacement

On my 04 Sea Breeze the wiper blades are attached to the arms with just a small bolt and nut. Can I just use any 22" blade and attach it the same way or is there in fact something missing off the blades.

Plan on dropping that small nut twice.. Donn't work on it over gravel. How do I know that?

My wiper blades on my Gulfstream are 24 inches long & I just replaced them. I found that www.RockAuto.com had them on a close out and I ended up getting new blades for the MH for $12.00 including shipping. When I got them home they were Trico Blades & they came with all the little bolts and nuts to install them.

why couldn't they all have used wiper blades that the auto parts stores sell. Then you wouldn't have to pay shipping charges that are some times more than the part.

I replaced mine from O'Reilly auto parts. Found the correct size, the new blades were 1" longer, removed the center piece, it was plastic. The replacement fit perfect, replaced the small nut's with a nylock self locking one's. Couldn't find the original one's after dropping in the gravel and couple of times.

I've been using 22" arm & blades from Walmart for the past 5 years. The bolt & nut works on them just fine. When I dropped my nut in the gravel I ended up buying a few back ups.

Go to Wally world and but the 22" or 24" blades made by michelin, they work like a champ but do not come with any bolt's or nut's.
As I can see from OP, I'm not the only one to drop the small nut in the gravel. I had to order them from Denso @ 0.98 cents each + shipping, so like other I ordered spares. These were not available from any of my local suppliers. One thing I learned when installing the new one's, I used my step ladder and got real comfortable where I could get to it easy, I took a piece of masking tape and stuck the small nut on it and started it on the bolt, it worked and did not loose nothing at all. Good luck and have a safe Holiday.

From Denso.

Item Number....... Description......Quantity
7-4 857059-0020 Cap Screw . . . . 2
7-5 857056-0040 3mm Hex Nut . . 2
7-6 857174-0020 Lock Washer . . .2

Probably much easier to pick up one that will work, at HD/Lowe's

Not to step on your toes Dunner. I don't think you will find the shoulder type cap screw at HD or Lowes. The cap screws on my wipers are a shoulder type, they have a long unthreaded shoulder with a short threaded end. The best place to find them is at an Industrial supply business. However, I may be wrong, never have looked for shoulder cap screws at HD or Lowes. Of course you could use a standard threaded cap screw.

Chuck, it would be hard to find that exact bolt, at even at Ace. When I took mine off last summer, I put a moving blanket over the 3/4" rock I have to work over and had to work on a stability challenged ladder sitting on said rocks. The tape is a good idea. That or Super Glue it to your finger tip and hope you got it at the right place. The joy of getting it on, would overcome the pain and loss of skin from removing it from your fingertip.

I just wonder how critical that bolt is. Haven't had to substitute it... yet. I have a 3 lb coffee can, 3/4th full of various screws, along with a 3/4th full, 2 lb can of nuts. And a 3 lb can 1/2 full of washers.

This year, I wiped them with 303 and covered them with convolute.

Dunner,
If the shoulder screw was replaced with a regular screw, one would need to be careful not to over tighten the nut and prevent the blade from pivoting. Other wise it shouldn't matter. When I lost the nut for mine I was able to find a nylock nut to fit the screw at the local Ace hardware.

Nyloc or crimp the threads so the nut wouldn't fall off.
