Wiper Arm Stripped Out
OK everyone, I think this is a simple one but want to make sure.
A while back I remembered that my passenger side wiper arm popped off while driving, which was kind of a surprise. I pressed the "latch tong" back in so it would catch the spindle and pressed it back on.
I pulled it off today just as a check as I am going to be driving up to Portland (1,000 miles or so) and wanted to make sure it was going to work OK. I noticed that the drive splines on the wiper arm look pretty degraded, to the point of being stripped.
I am having a hard time finding a picture of what they should be looking like, and if I need to get new drive splines as well on the bulkhead side. In fact, some of the pictures I found show a nut holding the wiper on, which I certainly do NOT have.
Can someone tell me if these are normal defender wiper arms? With my truck's complex history I don't know what it might be.
