But does anyone know of a similar car.. is what im asking lol. It needs to kick out the arm a far way from the pivot, most gm applications i know have the arm closer to center, so the wipers usually are shorter on one to not hit itThe wiper arm is a bolt on design. You have to remove the rubberized cap on the pivot point to expose the nut. You won't need a puller. Just up and down rocking of the arm base section will walk it off the tapered threads. It is under spring tension, so expect it to kick a little when it is removed.
All wiper arms are designed for the vehicle, and even which side of the vehicle, so you will need another arm for the same application, or from a vehicle that has the same arrangement, like another GM vehicle.
As for the hood bumper, it does look like it was up too high and the hood folds it over. It should turn by hand. Some Amor All, etc., will work on the threads to make it easier to turn.
its twisted. the arm is shot. its never gonna be structurally good again. i bent it back for it to remove rain OK, but its fatigued. remember my arm coming loose fiasco?The rubber hood bushing it used to set the height from side to side of the hood. It's a fine tune part to set proper gaps between panels. So if your hood sits higher on the driver side than the passenger side you turn up the passenger side. But if it sits higher and is higher than the fender, you turn down the driver side. It's made to be turned by hand and is a quick adjust item. It looks like it got caught and pulled on during some underhood work, popping it sideways, then the hood contact points pushed on it and bent it over in an arc.
I'm not sure what you want to do with the wiper arm. Replace it? Make it longer so you can put a longer wiper blade on?
thank you for diagram. note the unique curvature of the driver wiper arm.Here's a part# on the wiper arms, note that they have a sprayer on the arm, unfortunately it doesn't say which number is for what side. Not sure if like other manufacturers who have a odd and even number for L and R system, 99 PA.
