ok guys for x-mas i got the 07 style rear wiper arm and i am currently trying to install it; i removed the 13mm nut but the arm does not want to come off the shaft. is there something that i am missing from the article but it looks like it should just pull off? or is there are retaining clip that i have to pop to get the old arm off?

What size wiper blade is on that thing? cause my 06 has that style of arm. I guess the Buicks got the new style a year before the TBs.

yeah the buick and saab (i think) got it in 06. It was an OEM part from the dealer but the part number off the bag is 15232655

That does look REALLY good.

Maybe, if I get a side install soon, I'll pick this up for myself... Where'd you pick yours up at?

Is there a difference between the 06 and 07 wiper arms?
I'm having problems with my 06...

Let me guess :undecided, it misses a large area near the top half of the wiping area. The 07 is built a lot better, stronger, and cleaner. The spring in the 07 style gives a consistent wipe along the entire length of the blade. Pretty sure you have the old style, as I believe the new style only started to come out in 07. Do yourself a favor and get the upgraded style.

haha nice nick; guess i was just having too good of a time with my truck:x:D; but here are the pics

before

after




it looks awsome; i kept the old ramp because i think that it fit fine; and don't really plan on using the back wiper much anyway
Did you buy the wiper arm from Parts4chevy? Did it come with everything.....I mean the arm, wiper blade and the cover? The reason i am asking is because I bought an 07 wiper arm from the dealer and just got the arm......I bought a wiper blade from crappy tire and ended up breaking the stupid frickin" clip that holds the blade on...now I am stock with the stupid old style wiper blade....by the way......it looks sweet!!!
