Rear windshield wiper arm and wiper for 2020 Nautilus

Recommended Posts

Hi. Was in a drive thru carwash and my rear wiper came flying off. I can take the car in to the dealership or install a new rear wiper arm myself 

 

Found this on Amazon for the Ford Edge, and works for the Edge till 2020

should this be fine for the Lincoln Nautilus or do you recommend going to the dealership?

 

thank you

That Should be fine; call dealer parts dept. for a price, go with whatever is convenient for you, and ask them to match the Amazon price if they want more $ for the part.

It should be fine. It simply presses on, screws down and fastened with a nut (the hardest part is actually installing the blade to the arm). This is one case where aftermarket is as good as oem. 

 

I had to replace mine and ended up having to cut it off with a dermel tool. 

 

What's curious is why it came off in thd first place. (It's bolted on).

Mist have gotten caught in the rotary brush. I've noticed that my local car wash puts a plastic sleeve on rear wipers. Must be the reason. 

 

When I replaced mine, I used pb blaster and it still refused to budge. I ended up cutting through the wiper arm base with a dremel. Even after splitting the round base in half, I still had to cut through from the back to get the back half off the stem. 

 

If you have the same problem, I'd try a great puller (I didn't have one).
