The old one seems to have a spline for the spindle, but the new one is smooth - Will this be a problem?
Mine was the same Steve. The metal ring in the wiper cap gets cut into by the splines on the motor shaft. That's how it grips.. mine was six years old so took quite a bit of tugging. just place it on and tighten the nut.
