What a coinky-dink. My drivers side blade won't stay put and it's raining today; can't go to work until I fix it.

I thought the wiper arms were 22" for both sides. By chance do you know if these parts are still sold at the dealers?

10364940 Wiper arm, RH
10364941 Wiper arm, LH
12367275 Cap, arm finial—covers retaining nut (2 req’d)
11589150 Nut, arm retaining—same as B-body (2 req’d)

Bosch Icon blades
422A 22” for Driver side (LH)
421B 21” for Passenger side (RH)

Thanks for the assist. I learn something new everytime I log on to the Forum.

Gentlemen

Thanks for all the info! And yes, the $tealership wants twice what the aftermarket is asking. About those blades.

You're sure about the 20" for the passenger side? Not 21"?

Why the shorter length, given the original spec is 22" for both sides?

You've got me convinced. I found a GM dealer close by who has a set, and will sell them for $50 apiece. I need them today so I'll pay the extra $30.

Thanks for sharing the knowledge - don't what I'd do without you guys on this forum.

Cheers!

I installed the new arms with the Bosch Icon blades (unfortunately, I got a 21" for the passenger side by mistake, but that isn't the problem).

For the record, LH is driver side and RH is passenger side, correct? I can be a** backwards, sometimes.

I put the angled arm on the DS, but switched it to the passenger side. The hood kept hitting it. There seemed to be a lot of clearance between the windshield and the angled arm when it was on the DS; the only way I could get it so the hood would clear was to set it higher up on the windshield and that's too high - it looks like it's on the intermittent setting.

After the switch, there were no problems with clearance for the hood. However, the arm sweep went well off the windshield on the drivers side. I know I got the correct part numbers. I put a 22" blade on the drivers side and a 21" on the passenger side. As I said in the beginning, I got the 21" by mistake, but that shouldn't affect the sweep or height problems I'm having on the drivers side.

Any thoughts? Or in a word, HELP!
