Brice -

For the amount of time/effort required to rebush/rebuild, it's far easier just to replace.  Especially since these are a SAFETY item!

Wiper arms are not that expensive compared to other bus parts.

Anco & Trico make them - you should be able to pick up a pair at your local NAPA store, altho your store may have to have them brought over from their local distribution center.

Or call Luke: 1-888-262-2434 between 9-5 Eastern.

FWIW & HTH. . .

Thanks RJ
  I have disassembled both of them and believe I can use all the parts to rebuild one serviceable arm.  I guess this one will go on the Passenger side and a new arm and blade with blade holder will go on the Drivers side.

haha!! Windshield wiper problems? Where I live it very rarely rains and just isnt something I think of until it is too late! I found out on my last long trip, about 1000 miles from home, that my windshield wipers did not work right! I had never thought to test them out! But I did find that I had a nice on board set of wipers  Grin Grin Grin
