    I haven’t had any luck figuring out how the little clip connects the wiper arm to the wiper blade.
    Could someone take a photo of this connection please?
    Seeing how it’s hooked together would be a huge help.
    Thank you!

    It depends on the brand of blade and arm you have there, you may be trying to make the impossible happen, you should post pictures of what you've got .

    Zig,
    Do you see the irony in your question to the forum, without pictures?

    If your wiper arm has a "J" shape curve on the end you raise arm to maximum height and rotate arm into place (no locks IIRC). If the arm is straight with a small bump at the end you move the tiny tab on the top of the blade slot, slide blade in and release tab. Some of the replacements you can just slide blade on till you hear a click. Picture would help.

    (Especially since our host doesn’t have options to speak of)
    Anyway, always glad to oblige! #biggrin#
    Obviously I need a new spring for the arm...

    The wiper arms that our host sold 3-4 years ago (and probably now) look like the arm one below the red arm in your top picture above. The corresponding blade is not shown in any of your pictures. I was very disappointed in the "wimpyness" of these arms and blades when I bought a set 3-4 years ago. I installed the set anyway and they actually work pretty well with my electric wiper motor. Only problem is the blade WILL fall of the arm if you pull the arm away from the windshield.

    Thanks, Bill!
    A picture is worth a thousand words, and what you posted gives me an idea to try.
    If it works, I’ll post a photo.
