    Default Correct windshield wipers for an 84

    For those of you with all original 84's, I'm interested to know what your wiper blades look like.
    I have nos for my 82, just not sure what the 84's came with. Thanks

    I’m pretty sure they were the plastic framed wiper blade assemblies. I removed the originals from my svo back in 86. The Motorcraft replacements have a metal frame. The parts book lists a different blade refill for early cars but I have not inspected those parts.

    Here are correct 87-93 at a minimum and above are correct for 82/83 at least. I'm not sure if there was another design in between these two or if one of these are correct.

    The (white-painted) arms that came on my '85 McLaren have an "E4?B?" number. The arms that I'm currently running on it and on the Fairmont have an "E7Z" number. My untrained, uneducated eyes see no difference.

    Yes the top one is the plastic blade assembly design that I recall.

    The bottom one is similar to the Motorcraft replacements.

    Here’s the picture.

    Taken at Midwest Foxbody Fest in Omaha. BTW —up until September 29 2018 this 85GT had never ever been rained on. Wow.

    Thank you. Unless there is another style specific to 1984, the 1982 style blade carried over until at least 1985 - which seems to be the case.

    Thanks for all the input.
