    OEM 1989 LH Wiper

    OEM Blade photos in post near bottom of this page...

    I'm looking for an OEM 1989 LH wiper blade assembly. The 89's are different in that the LH blade assembly is longer than the RH assembly. From 1990 and up, the blades are the same length, regardless of side.

    I don't need the arm, just the blade assembly. I don't care if the rubber is good, or even there. Doesn't matter what kind of condition it's in cosmetically, since I'll restore it anyway. Just need one that's not bent or missing any tabs or clips.

    If you need a photo to see what an original looks like, PM me and I'll send you one for comparison.

    Thanks,

    JD

    PS: I'd buy a RH too, as a spare for my inventory.

    I have an '89 XR7. Do you know if they were the same as the SC ones?

    Yes, all 89 MN12's used the same wiper set-up, regardless of model. Do you have an OEM one to get rid of?

    Here you go. Is in real nice shape other than the paint wearing off. Has the E89S stamped on the back of it, so it should be what you are needing.

    FYI - he doesn't need the "arm"

    he wants the head/blade assembly, so basically the piece that clips to that arm you posted. Mine had been replaced with RainX brand "heads" so they didn't work for him

    Correct. The blade assembly; the "throw-away" part. Really, just the metal "frame" part of the blade assembly. I can get by with an aftermarket rubber refill (If anyone is looking that close, I'll kick 'em in the @$$!).

    The OEM heads are unique, and no aftermarket piece is the same upon close scrutiny. I want to get some before they're ALL gone. Maybe it's too late already...

    Thanks,

    JD

    Ah, gotcha. How can you tell a replacement from an OEM? I sincerely hope that this one didn't have an original one, as I broke it taking it off.

    Jerry,

    Unless mine was broken, and replaced by someone other than me, I have one. Let me know.

    Photos Of Original

    Attached are photos of my original RH blade assembly. The over-arm is hinged in the middle at the pivot, and is only two pieces. It pinches down a ways after the attachment point, and maintains the smaller cross-section all the way to the end. The end bulges slightly as shown in the photo. Only OEM's are like this. The various aftermarket blades that I've found hinge in multiple points.

    Take a look and let me know if you have any. I'm primarily looking for the 89 LH blade, but am interested in either side from 89. Also would be interested in a pair of 90-up blades for inventory.

    Thanks!

    JD
