Yeah, i noticed the same thing...mine isn't sitting as far down as the stock one but i didn't wanna tighten it too much and break something so i just left it alone.

I know that the front wiper nuts are 13mm, so I would assume that the same would be for the hatch wiper nut. Then again, Ford isn't so smart when it comes to design continuity so don't quote me on that

Cheers!

Lol, you know...i asked the parts guy at the mazda dealer where i got mine from about that. And he actually gave me a good explanation. He had said that the splined part on the motor was hardened steal and the wiper arm part was i guess a softer metal. So when you tighten it on the splines would dig in on the arm metal and kinda create it's own ridges. The reason for that was that if there was something pushing down on the wiper arm when it's on then the arm could give way and not burn out the motor by trying to keep forcing it up.

It made sense to me so i installed w/o a second thought and i have never had a problem with it.

macdiesel 13mm? I believe it's metric. When I installed mine it was a pain to get the old arm off. I think I pryed mine off slowly. When I finally got it off I noticed it was splined, which was making it real hard to remove. Also used PbBlaster in it to loosed it up. The mazda arm wasn't splined but I tightened it down. I'm gonna dremel out the mazda arm in the spring so it fits better. Good luck with the install.

W~Phoenix~{RC} Yes, it is a direct bolt-on. All you need to do is lift up on the nut cover at the base of the wiper arm, remove the nut, then remove the stock wiper arm. The wiper arm may come off by just pulling straight on it or it may need a little twisting action.

Install the new wiper stuffs in reverse order. Here's a picture of it on pharcyde253's ride.


Cheers!

part numbers

BP4K-67-421 wiper arm
BP4M-67-330A Blade
BP4M-67-395A Cover
You might not need the cover. When I got mine the blade had a cover on it. I recall the cover being like $5. I brought the three parts numbers above to a mazda dealer and when they ran the first two part numbers that was everything I needed. Also remember reading on fj.com about the cover being included. Post up pics when all done.
