    The arm on my 86K10 broke. How do I change this and does anyone have one for sale?( It has intermittent wipers, cruise and the blinkers)

  2. not quite sure how the newer ones like yours are held on. the old ones use a single phillips head screw and you can usually get to it after pulling the wheel. if not you might have to go a little deeper and take the lockplate off to get to it. get the puller for this and save yourself a lot of cussing and thown tools. hope this helps.
    oh, and LMC has new ones.

    As far as re&amp;re the arm, consult a quality repair manual from Haynes or Chilton. I'm looking at mine in regards to your situation and it tells you everything to do the job.

    yeah funny how much that chrome is worth... the other funny thing is at my shop we buy them from the Local Jeep?Eagle dealer cause they cost less. I dunno if it works in your area too (Heck I only know cause the shop has been doing this for many years [​IMG]), but it saves us usually about 5-10 bucks on some of the more expensive GM ones.

    Yea the crome one gives you 15hp right?
    There are two pullers you should get if you have to take off the lock plate to get to the turn signal cam.Other wise it realy sucks tryng to hold that sping down with one thumb and prying the snap ring off with your other hand.


    Loriders are for guys who cant get it up.
