That's what I would've thought, too. But then I needed to replace the passenger wiper arm on my '99 SW2. I went to the junk yard and pulled the best looking arm ($10), which happened to be from an '01. It was exactly the same shape and length as mine, but it didn't fit!! The manufacturers changed (maybe around 2000?) and now the socket on the arm was too large in diameter to engage with the spindle of the motor. They let me exchange it for a less-pretty arm from a '98.
I think the older maker was IMF? The newer wiper arms were made by Bosch.
