Where would I need to go to find a replacement?
First, there is usually a splined bushing inside the wiper arm when then slips onto the shaft of the wiper arm motor. This splined shaft can become worn from either being the wrong size and type or from the arm not being correctly tightened on the motor shaft.
Not sure how the Windsport's wiper are mounted but my challenger has a cap nut at the bottom of the wiper arm. Remove the cap nut and then gently pry the arm off the shaft.
If the splined bushing is in fact the problem they can be purchased at most auto parts stores.
