OK I will dig through the air ducts tomorrow and see, the outside bolt behind the wiper arm was a bit loose, I tightened that today but did not retest.

Snapped stud that holds the fixed arm taking it apart, still scratching my head about a fix for that. I think a washer and a circlip with a bit of epoxy will hold for now.

Thanks

Bill

Bit of jiggling and cursing and the wiper came to life.

Thanks all

PS Randy I found the paint codes, what brand of paint is it so I can go order some?

Bill,
I believe that Blue Bird used Imron. I took the paint codes from my 95 BMC and had them matched using Chromabase. I removed the electrical access panel from under the drivers side window that had all of the colors on it. The paint codes helped in getting the match in the right direction but having the panels there to do a color match is the way to go. I used Glasurit for the clear. Most of the colorcodes were matched to Chevy and GM. I think one was a Toyota.

Engine deck lid louvers were part of the silent recall by BlueBird but I think it was standard equipment by the time the 97s were built.
