    All,

    Could you all give me what is the correct length for the Arman wiper blades? Does anyone have a lead where I can find a new or used black set?

    I believe that there are two lengths, Freeman. My later Dino (04808) has 18" blades. My earlier one (03964) has, if I'm not mistaken, 16" blades. Fred

    Did you check with ReOriginals Freeman?

    IIRC they have the right open style arms....

    My collegue's early E-Series has 14" Arman blades that look to be original. I would appreciate more feedback from other Dinos please!

    Curiously, when I recently called a well-known independent Ferrari parts supplier, they told me that they had non-original blades for a Dino, specified by Ferrari. When I asked if they were 18" in length, they said no. It turned out that they are longer. I have seen pictures of Dinos with parallel wipers, where the right-side wiper is hanging off the edge of the windshield. Presumably these are the "Ferrari-approved" oversized blades. For under $10.00 each, I found replacement blades at my local service station that slipped right into the Arman wiper arms. Fred

    I found the attached Tech Sheet from the Factory that gives the wiper blade lengths for various Dinos in various country specifications. Hope it is useful.

    Looks like this is for parallel wipers only from chassis No. 05102? Clapper arm blades I would think would be shorter?

    If memory is correct you have center/clapper wipers, euro. I still think 14/15s are correct... No way on 18s. I can go measure mine again but they are a shade under 15 inches end to end. *04022*/919body euro

    That sounds similar to my collegue's.

    Is there a good source for the 16" (or 390mm) Arman black blades these days? The existing Arman blades on my Euro GT #06618 measures approximately 15 1/2 inches (390mm). I suspect the blade was just replaced at some point and was probably 16 inch (per the guide posted above). My passenger side blade is a bit loose/wobbly and has scratched the glass, so I'd like to replace both of them.

    Re-Originals doesn't have the Arman in 16" size (and people have complained about the fit of their wiper blades in other FerrariChat threads).

    Thanks for any leads.

    I guess nobody has a source for the correct 16" black blades for a Dino?

    So...sounds like there isn't a good source for replacement black blades (not just insert)? My passenger side has come loose with age and wobbles about a bit and I'd like to replace it since it has a habit of twisting and scratching the windshield if I'm not careful.

    Thank you, this is incredibly helpful.
    I have 2 Dinos, a Euro with clapping then ~300 VINs later a US with parallel and wondered why the arm lengths and wiper blades are different sizes.

    Arman is marked on both the wiper arm and the wiper blade holder.

    I can grind the glass scratch out for you, LMK

    Image Unavailable, Please Login My 1972 US spec Dino, S/N 4866, has 18” wipers. The passenger side wiper always bothered me, as it overlaps the windscreen, but I suppose, from Simon‘s spec sheet (many thanks, Simon), that that is the correct length. 16 inches would be much better.
