Default Rear Wiper Grommet?

I need the rubber (or neoprene or whatever it is) grommet that seals the space between the shaft and the hole in the glass on my rear wiper on my '02 Limited.

The old one is all rotted looking and looks as though it could let water in. I may not be using the right name for it, because nothing comes up in any search I've done so far.

Any info would be appreciated.

Well, I ordered one, and installed it. It's an '01 Cruiser.

The old grommet was hard and splitting:

The cover pries off the hub of the wiper arm, then a 13mm socket removes the nut retaining the wiper blade.

There's a plastic push fastener on the inside liftgate cover near the latch. you have to pry the head off to release it:

And loosen the two inside pillar covers.

Then the inside panel pries off.


The rear wiper motor is held on with three 8mm (or 5/16") hex head bolts. The bolts thread into rubber isolating nuts so the tightening torque on these bolts is quite low (spec 10 in-lb).

The service manual cautions to remove the wiper motor carefully or you could damage the glass. Mine came out easily.

There's a clip at the top of the panel. Mine stuck on the metal tab above the wiper motor. I think it was installed incorrectly at the factory. I removed it from the metal tab an re-installed it at the top of the panel.


The panel re-installed rather easily. I noted where the retaining clips were and there's one locating post on the back of the panel. Got the clip at the top engaged on the metal tab. Got the locating post in its hole. Gave the panel eight hits (one at each retaining clip) and it was back in place. Then snapped the pillar covers back in place.

The new grommet installed:

All ready to re-install the wiper arm & blade.

It must be a slow night if I'm writing this one up. Have a good evening.

Ordered it, but never installed it. I was hit head on by another driver on June 3rd and it totalled my '02 limited and tore me up good too. Guess it's still in the garage where I left it, still in the envelope..
