Windshield wipers and linkage parts

2007 Damon Outlaw Workhorse chassis

As we work through mostly minor issues I bump up against things I have no idea where to source parts.

I noticed today while doing work under and near the front hood, that the passenger side windshield wiper assembly was loose. There is a large nut that when tightened holds the wiper pivot to the fiberglass front. I tired to tighten and the nut gets snug and then slips. It seems that the nut is stripped. The threads on the pivot could be stripped too but I didn't want to proceed further until I could find some parts.

So where can I find parts for repairing the wiper assembly? Also what blades should be used The blades that are installed do not touch the glass in the center of the blades. About 7" long area not touching, both sides.

Thanks

No guarantees, but looks a lot like the wipers on our 1998 Overland.
The threaded pipe goes through and there is a nut on both sides of the fiberglass.
Try backing the nut off and see if it is the nut or the pipe threads.

Just good old wiper blades should work fine.

Trico wiper system.
I called and got pets from:
Rome truck parts
1-800-284-4345
Talked to Kristen

Been a few years, but worth a call?

I spoke with Rome Truck Parts and they had what I needed. I needed the large nut that holds the pivot to the fiberglass front end. The nut is sold separately or in a kit with the big nut, the rubber rain cap and the little nut that hold the wiper assembly to the pivot. 10 bucks for the kit. I bought two to satisfy their $100 minimum. But if you need the pivot it is 59 bucks and change and you still have to by the kit separately.

So hopefully the nut kit is all I need.


Thanks again for the lead.

Wow, $100 minimum? I think I bought 2 rubber weather seals and some other little thing.

Glad you got what you needed!
