Windscreen Wipers

305 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  Moby5153
I have bought some new spindles and wiper arms for my '72 Beetle, but i cant get the wiper arms to fit. They dont appear to go down the shaft of the spindle far enough. There is a hole on the wiper arms which is tapered(sp?) which the spindle goes through, but everytime i think i have it on, they just pop off when i turn the wipers on.
Anybody got any ideas?

Don't really understand what you mean. The spindles have splines, the wiper arm hole has splines, you push them together and fit the nut back on the spindle to hold them in place.
