Default GS Scenic Cruiser wipe trim cap

Ok, folks.tough one. We have a 2002 GS Scenic Cruiser..somehow we lost the little trim clip at the base of the windshield wiper arm. I suspect these will be like HEN"S teeth to find.....anybody have an idea where you could find one of these...it drives me crazy with the one missing.........

Believe or not: Home Depot has the joint wiper caps.

Well Hello Ray, Have not heard from you in a long time. I figured you did not have the twin to my coach anymore. Good to see you are still kicking around and still have the Scenic Cruiser. We just got back from a trip to Yosemite. We spent three weeks at the TT resort and had a great time. I have 76K miles on my Scenic Cruser now and she is running better then ever. Over all it has been a great coach. RayChez

I do not agree with Swissman saying that you can find those wiper covers at Home Depot. Home Depot we have does not carry any automotive equipment.
Maybe Tractor supply or Super Walmart, but I have never seen them, but then again I have never lost one of them on my coach.

I was able to change (update) my entire wiper arm on both sides here.

Default follow up on wiper trim cap

well, had problems getting back in. RayChez good to hear from you again! Yes..still have the TWIN and things are running well........OH CRAP...I hope I don't jinx myself... I had our old dealership check on that little trim piece...that went over the wiper hub....they searched everywhere...couldn't find one.......... I do know there are old motorhome grave yards, and if anybody knows of any one of those, I could contact there....


guess I am getting old, as well as the Coach!!! I checked some of those sites noted, and nothing seemed to be the same......well..I do have option of replacing BOTH..start fresh..DUH.........


good to be back. The management of this site was great to get me fixed up and back............. HUGS to all.................Ray (the other ray)

I suppose their are some Home Depots that carry this wiper blade caps, but the one we have here does not carry any of that stuff. Maybe Home Depot has like Walmart store, some are Super Walmart and then you have smaller stores with limited supplies. So my apologies to Swiss Man. But it is good to find out that some stores do carry those caps.

I bought two of the base units for the wiper system from Rome Trucks to update the arms. I had a bad arm that wouldn't even hold the blade to the glass. There were no parts available but with new replacement bases the entire job was under $150 with two new arms.



Now its a beautiful thing!
