2005 Castle IV Windshield Wiper Arm

Does anyone know where we can get a replacement arm for our 2005 Monaco Castle IV. It appears the splines on the arm are stripped.

Try and take a dental pic and dig out the grooves in the arm socekt. The post is softer and made to sluff off metal. Mine would slip in the post and as soon as I cleaned the arm grooves and reinstalled it worked fine. Take a hammer and as you tighten the nut tap the arm at the socket. It needs to be real tight as there is a lot of leverage on the long arm...

Good luck
Dave

If the motor has a sticker that says Wiper Technologies get the number off of it and Contact Diesel Equipment Company of Greensboro North Carolia
My 2007 uses their wipers, I don't know what the 2005 uses. If you get an arm from them you may want to get blades also. Two sets of blades will cause the price to decrease substantially.

Hypoxia is correct... 35 ft pounds will seem real tight for that small nut. But try and clean the splines on the arm with a dental pick. It will work....

Good luck

Heating the arm with heat gun or hairdryer will enlarge the hole ..doesn't have to be ridiculously hot . I drop bearings on shafts that need to be pressed off or on otherwise. I usually shoot for 175f for sealed bearings 200f nonsealed on an induction heater. You won't that hot.
When it cools it would have went on further.

After several attempts at repairs as described above, I finally cleaned it up one more time, and installed the arm and torqued the nut. Before I re-installed the decorative cap, I drilled a very small, maybe 1/16" hole thru the assembly to allow me to drive a pin thru the combination of the arm and the shaft. I reinstalled the decorative cap, and so far, so good.

For what it is worth, I recently replaced the whole assembly. Wiper Technologies have a much better replacement than Monaco bought from them back in '05/'06. Cost was around $300, took about an hour and a half to install. Much better pressure on the glass, much stiffer assembly so no more "wrap around" at the corner of the windshield.
