Then we slipped in the passenger side pivot shaft and hooked up the rod, while a friend installed the outside hardware. Sometimes it's nice to have a second set of hands around. A word of caution: Make sure the pivot shaft arm is in the 10 to 12 o'clock position as shown. If you install it at the 6 o'clock position, the wiper arm will work backwards and scratch the paint off your hood. You have been warned!
