Source For Wiper Nut??


Recommended Posts

Help! In order to do a thorough job of rust repair below my windshield, I decided to unbolt the wiper shafts to get them out of the way and replace the rotted original gaskets while I was at it. But I couldn't get the driver's side loose- the whole shaft assembly would turn when i put a wrench on the nut. No matter what I tried I couldn't get a solid grip on anything below the sheet metal. After many repeated and frustrating attempts and lots of penetrating oil, I gave up and decided to to cut the nut off. Easy, right? Well, not really. The cutting was easy but It turns out the nut is NLA and my local fastener supplier (Tacoma Screw Products - they have pretty much everything...) couldn't come up with a substitute. Does anyone know of a source of these things or have an extra lying around?
