Plastic Wiper Blade Mounts


Recommended Posts

Howdy Intrepid 2002'ers

So we finally had a bit of rain recently, and I realized that I desperately needed new blades. I dropped into the local Autozone and got some 15" BOSCH SUPERMEGA-RAINBLASTERS and walked out. When I went to change them in the rain I noticed the attachment bit wasn't the standard c-shaped hanger on every car I've ever owned.

Instead I noticed some sort of cheap black plastic tip on my metal wiper arms that mounted to the BOSCH wiper-blades the PO had installed. In my absolute genius I seemed to crack this mounting bracket that was on the tip of the metal wiper arms. It looked like it was joined via a hole that the tip popped into. Does anyone know if that is a BOSCH part, or if that was actually part of the wiper-arm assembly itself? I looked at RealOEM and didn't notice anything marked as such. 

What wiper blades are you using? The originals look to be Bosch 380's which are now defunct.

Usually you get a bunch of different plastic doobries in the package with the blade. 


 The end you want has a C loop the snaps over the rod on the blade and then pushes onto the end of arm and locks into place in the small hole at the end.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
