Comments about Dorman - Help Windshield Wiper Arm:

This part was a direct fit replacement for my OEM wiper arm that got stripped. It was easy to replace and looked just like the OEM arm. However, a little under a year after it was installed onto my truck, the entire arm was orange with rust. All the paint flaked off and the arm looks like it is 25 years old. I know its cheap but in the product description for the item it states: "Long lasting enamel prevents flaking peeling and fading." Also the Limited Lifetime warantee that comes with the part apparently does not cover the rust until the part actually breaks.

        A:

        Hi Gene, I'm glad to explain you! The replacement of this wiper arm #42694 is same as the OE replacement. The bolt on wiper arm will not have pre cut splines. The splines on the shaft of the transmission will cut into the bore of the arm. This is by design and creates a fail point in case the wipers are turned on with any obstruction (snow or ice). This protects the other wiper components. Before installation, be sure the piper switch is off so the wipers are parked, position the new arm and tighten the retaining nut. The nut get torqued to 22 ft/lbs. As you tighten the retaining nut down it will force the arm over the splined shaft.

    • Q:

      It says "without splines", but the 2005 Suburban has splines. I cannot even find one with splines anywhere. What gives? It won't work without them.
