So, where do you go?

I buy mine at O'Reilly or Autozone. My wiper system is made by Denso, the blades are bolted to the wiper arm. I just break out the plastic J hook adapter and bolt the wiper to the arm. If they don't have the exact length just get one that is close, slightly longer or shorter.

And while your at the auto parts store buy enough wire loom cover, its black corrugated tubing Cut it to the length of your wiper blades then cut about 1/4 inch long slot all the way down for easier insulation. Slide it over the wiper blades to protect them from UV and sun damage. They look much better than the pool noodles so many use.

I wish I could get stronger springs to hold my wipers to the windshield. The middle part doesn't wipe the windshield. Also need new nozzles and will check out Mill Supply for that.

Anyone know who made the wiper arms for an '04 Southwind?
