2001 SC2
Default Windshield Wiper Arms

Hey, everyone! Got a bit of a problem...passenger side wiper arm got busted clean off when a "helpful" gas jockey opened my hood as the wipers were flipped back (I was cleaning my own windshield, place was busy and the attendant looked like he felt guilty).
I can't seem to find the arms listed anywhere, or is there an interchange that will tell me what other car I can pirate a set off of?
My ride is a 2001 SC2
Thanks in advance!

Easiest and cheapest would be to visit a junkyard, if available, in your area.

AWESOME...Thank You very much, Focusofheart! That is exactly what I was trying to find! Favourited/Bookmarked for future reference as well....thanks again.
Yes, a wrecker may be cheaper, but it's -30F here right now and NO ONE wants to go playing with anything outdoors if they don't have to, lol.

I would almost think wiper arms are not Saturn-specific - guessing similar sized cars would fit

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.

Well, that's interesting information. Thanks!

I'm planning on re-spraying my arms, one of these days. It's small things like that which make a car look newer / more tired.

Also, yay! The Chinese spam threads on S Series General are almost off the first page

HA HA! I beat you to it and the "small things" definitely make a difference. Of course my 98SL2 thinks its a 2005 Vue because of the emblems I replaced.

Default Re: Windshield Wiper Arms

I'm planning on re-spraying my arms, one of these days.

I'm thinking along those lines, myself. Before I moved here (house has a garage) my 1996 SW2 parked under a carport for 23 years . The carport faced east and west and the Las Vegas afternoon sun did a number on the paint/coating of the rear wiper arm of my SW2. Can't seem to find a new arm and haven't been here long enough to know where the pick-n-pulls are.

Today, as I was looking for something in the basement, I came across an old double-wiper blade and brought it up - checked and it looks like it will fit the rear of the minivan. I'd bought a set of them over 24 years ago and never got around to putting them on the car I bought them for

Rubber still looks / feels good. They were in their original packaging until a basement flood a couple of months ago.

Thanks toggenburg !!!

I'll pursue those. The SW2 needs a little "road trip" to Apache Junction (if that's where i need to go).

Before I moved here (from Vegas) I used to make the 325 (each way)mile drive every few weeks to see my mom. Now that I'm here, my house is 3/10 of a mile from hers and the poor little SW2 is "all dressed up with nowhere to go" lol
