    Quick question....the wiper arm is getting loose on the driver side. How do I get to the bolt to tighten it? It's been snowing here for the last four days and I haven't had a chance to get out to take a good look at it. Supposed to be good thursday lol so I might be able to get it done then lol.

    Walk to the front of the truck, remove the plastic cover and there will be the nut.

    One thing to watch out for is they have these plastic ball/socket joints connecting the cross bars to the wiper crank arms. The one on my driver's side wore out. You could probably get the part from the dealer but I made my own replacement socket by turning some nylon on the lathe.



    Just something you might want to check while you are in there..

    I replaced both of mine last year. They just were not holding the blade tight to the glass anymore. I can't remember if I got them from Amazon, Rockauto, or Autopartswarehouse. If I remember correctly, it's a different part then whats listed.

    Thanks guys. Its been freezing rain here Noe and I can't risk breaking the plastic cover. As soon as it warms up a bit I'll check it out.
