Does anyone know the make of this arm and where they might be available?

Thanks,

Peter

Don't know the make, peter, but I think Holden Classics, Bromyard (01885 488488) would be able to supply.

Thanks emmerson,

Holden do stock a fairly comprehensive range of wiper components but, alas not of the type in the photo.

Difficult to see how it is linked to the spindle, and to the wiper.
Early 2CV has a wiper which use a similar arm tot wiper link, but hard to tell to be sure. I assume you do not have a better picture?

The nearest I can come up with are these from Holden...not quite the same, but the spindle attachment seems similar? maybe a previous owner fitted Ford USA items?

Or these?

Looks almost like there's a small rose joint clevis that the wiper arm is attached to?

I agree. It's a mystery to me too. I guess there may be a hole through the drive shaft. The best I can do is..


Thanks Alastair, The arms you've found have similarities but I'm trying to find an exact match.

It's my guess, given the car's history, it may be a universal US-style wiper fitting.

Hi Peter.
I'm sure I have seen similar to this but can't trace where, but try Paul Beck Vintage Spares as he seems to have quite a comprehensive selection of wiper parts and I have sourced from him finding the goods of excellent quality.
I'm sure, if anyone knows, it would be them.

Scroll down this page? Not very clear photos, but one or two have the nicely sculpted arms?

Or, blow this photo up?

Thanks Pete and Alastair,

I've looked through the links but I don't think we've found the right type yet but I do appreciate your efforts in searching.

Peter
