Recently while driving in heavy rain the drivers side wiper blade fell off. After inspecting the arm I am not sure what needs to be replaced. The end of the intact passenger side has a standard J connector and a 13" bosch blade. Whats left on the drivers side looks weird and doesn't fit any wiper blade I have seen. Attached are a couple of pictures. Did I loose a piece of the wiper arm along with the blade? Can it be replaced? And why did it fall off in the first place? The original owner had blades replaced by dealer two years ago. I don't think this car had ever seen rain before I bought it last week and I plan to use this car as a daily commuter. I need my wipers. My nearest dealer is 500 miles away so I am on my own. Please help. Also, on the subject of rain, If you get in or out of the car when it is raining the door panel is bound to get wet. I assume this panel is covered in leather, not vinyl, and I am thinking of coaing it with leather waterproofing. Good idea or bad? Any suggestions on the product. I love everything about this car. Powerfull, smooth, surefooted and incredibly beautiful. I hope to put a hundred thousand miles on it. I had looked at the ferrari 456 prior to my purchase. The 456 has a better exhaust note but the DB7 is much better looking. The 456 requires an expensive timing belt change every few years and the DB7 seemed a more reliable choice for daily driving. Hope I was right.
