91 lude wiper part

Been a while. What is that plastic piece called that connects the arm to the wiper motor socket? It's some sort of plastic cup thingy.

Re: 91 lude wiper part

I think everyone left because of all the spam that this forum was seeing. I know I look a lot less often now because of it. Sorry I didn't notice your question.

I don't know what they are called, but you couldn't buy those even when all the parts were available. They are part of the rod units, and the only way to replace one was to buy whichever rod unit had the part that was bad/missing. I've replaced the rod units before. Just try to find it at a junkyard. Definitely not ideal, but I don't know of any other alternative.

Thanks Luzer. Got lucky and found one in the j-yard that was still good. A rare item indeed.

Re: 91 lude wiper part

Glad you were about to find what you needed. It sucks how much harder it is to find parts for these cars now.

Re: 91 lude wiper part

On the standard Honda diagram of the wiper assembly, on item #11 (Honda part #76540-SF1-A02) it shows that rod, and that wiper bushing is not considered a part by Honda. It is however a Windshield Wiper Linkage bushing for a lot of older Nissans. It's available through the Dorman "Help!" product line number 49449. If your in the Seattle area I suggest getting them through Auto Plus Auto Parts, as those fellas helped me find the little bastards. A thing to note is that that linkage arm is quite soft metal, and bending that bar is very easy. Over time the hole that the bushing goes into has probably deformed on your arm as well, so it will need to be reshaped. To reshape it The best tool is simply a mandrel, and you don't have one, (or one in the right size) calling a local custom jewelry shop is probably your best bet, as as they should definitely have one and will probably be able to help you beat it back to the right shape and size. All of outside little spear-shaped parts must begin to fit inside the ring without pressure to ensure that the thicker, farther down part of the little spear-shaped pieces will clear through as well. Lubing it up is also the best way to go, I personally used motor oil.( Make sure to call beforehand, and then walking in WITHOUT the linkage to announce who you are, as walking into a jewelry shop with a large metal bar might not be received well..) I suggest an arbor press, however a vice will do as well. Make sure to not block any of the fingers on the other side, and the inside pieces that actually put pressure on the ball, I would consider them as single use consumables to be on the safe side, AKA if you screw one up, buy more. Good luck to anyone else with this issue!
