The original blade has a locking mechanism built into the rubber since the arm doesn't have any "stops" to prevent the blade from sliding out.
Has anyone found a solution for this or anyone north of the border know if the rubber insert for the original winged arm is available in Canada?
I found the Rain X Weatherbeater at Walmart for about $9 has the same locking mechanism. I removed the blade by from the Rain X arm following the Subaru directions for blade replacement (if they actually sold one this would be useful) and slid it into the old Subaru wiper assembly with the wind wing and it works great. The Weatherbeater is a natural rubber blade and not silicone if this is of any interest to readers.
