Wiper arm

Postby Len on Thu Sep 07, 2017 4:39 pm

I lost a wiper arm on my 2012 R27 taking off the front window canvas. Can't seem to find any replacements here in the PNW. Tried West Marine, Fisheries supplies, and a couple auto parts store. Any ideas or suggestions?

Thanx, Len

I replaced two of mine in the Spring, same as the original. You will have to get the blade also if you need it.
I have found that by removing the gray plastic caps on the knuckles salt does not build up and they operate more smoothly.

Thanks for the info! I should have thought about my description. The arm that attaches to the boat is there, the blade was pulled off however, I didn't think about replacing the whole arm assembly. The wipers don't really do a good job as it seems the arm assembly doesn't seem to put enough pressure on the blade and streaks the window. After I replay he blade I was going to try some WD-40 on the assembly and see if it loosens the arm a bit but maybe replacing all the assemblies are the way to go.

I was able to get the blade assembly on Amazon as well. I replaced both the arm and the blade assembly on mine. two years ago I tried a different brand, but they did worse than the OEM, so hence I went back to OEM. As recommended by Brian, I left the knuckle covers off.

By chance do you have the OEM name or part no# ?

I used rain-X wiper blades - matches the ROCA arms very nicely. you can get them at ACE hardward for $11.00
works great.
