Snow, ice, dirt, and dust can interfere or damage your windshield wipers and the motion transmission mechanism. A bent or damaged link can cause the wipers to not work or work incompletely. These parts will also cause an annoying squeaking when they wear out. In general replacing windshield wiper transmission parts is not difficult. This may vary on some applications. It requires basic tools and removal and installation of small body parts such as cowl vent grilles. This replacement wiper transmission may be just what you need to get your windshield wiper system working properly again.

This wiper transmission features the following specifications:

  • Fits between windshield wiper motor and wiper arms
  • Complete assembly
  • Replaces dealer part numbers: 1S4Z 17566 AA, 1S4Z17566AA
  • Direct bolt on
  • Built to strict quality control standards
  • Stamped construction

This wiper transmission makes a great replacement and has good cost savings over a dealer unit.
