    Cant get passanger side wiper arm to reattach to the shaft

    09 9 3. I had to remove the wiper arms to replace the assembly when the bushings failed. Installed the wiper arms and tightened them down.
    The problem is that the passanger side wont attach. Have removed it twice and reattached but it still wont set into the shaft. The shaft nor the arm is stripped.
    Is there a trick to this? The shaft is rotating fine so that's not the problem, just cant seem to get the arm down far enough on the shaft.

    Hope the arm won't cost an arm and a leg..



    Probably shouldn't be too difficult to find a used arm.
