Is it common for EL's to have 'rattly' wiper arms?

Mine are bugging me to tears and want them fixed...

Are brand new ones (either genuine or aftermarket) still available? Or are they now obsolete?

Cheers.

Might not the the arms but the blade assembly.. You can get the blade assembly with blades from KMART for under $10.00.

yeah blade assemble is what will make it chatter across the glass. new assemble will fix the issue, lots of options and price variance to be had.

Thanks for the reply guys.

Definitely not th wiper blades, as they are newish and the wipers themselves perform silky smooth.

There is no 'chadder' across the windows - they glide across smoothly.

I'm assuming it would be the wiper arms/motor, it appears as though there is some 'rattle' or play in the linkages.
