The wiper motor bolts to the engine compartment firewall. LHD cars sweep to the left, RHD sweeps to the right. For the windscreen washer, see Kangaroo Bag.



The windscreen wipers are about both the outside parts, and the linkage inside the passenger compartment.

Wiper Blades, Arms and Inserts

The wiper arm is the metal part that goes back and forth
24684.jpgAlbum 24684

The wiper blade is the part that snaps into the arms and holds the rubber wiping insert. Datsun calls these two parts together the Blade Assembly
11490.jpgAlbum 11490

The wiper insert is the rubber strip (the refill) that fits into the blade.

Wiper Blades

The blade is the metal part that holds the rubber inserts (refills). These two parts combined are called the blade assembly
11490.jpgAlbum 11490

Datsun 1200 uses 16" (405mm) wiper blades. The original blade was a stainless steel design marked "56L" on the bottom and "AE" on top. This blade takes 5/16" wide refills (9mm).

NOTE: Your 1200 may have had the original blades replaced at some point. Aftermarket blades may take a different type of rubber insert.

To separate blade from arm, insert knife as shown to lift up tab. Then pull the blade off the arm.

Aftermarket Blades

Datsun 1200 wiper arms have a 7mm bayonet end.Aftermarket 16" blades that include a 7mm bayonet adapter work with the factory arms.

From $2 each at Rockauto

Compatible blade assemblies include:


For stock wiper arms, the refills are 16" long x 5/16" "Universal" style.
28729.jpgAlbum 28729

Although many stores recommend a new blade assembly, upon request they may sell you a much more inexpensive refill. It takes another minute to feed the insert into the blade, but you can save a lot of money. Because the original Datsun 1200 blades are quality stainless steel, they still look good and operate fine. Aftermarket blades are plastic or cheap stamped steel that rust in a few years.

NOTE: over the years many 1200 blades have been replaced with quick-replacment blades. If so, the original style refills won't fit.

NOTE: If you have trouble sourcing 5/16 inch x 16" wiper inserts, you can replace the entire metal blade with a different type (see #Aftermarket Blades). The only downside is the extra cost, plus the style (looks) will be different. Replacing the inserts is less expensive e.g. $5 for inserts, $15 for blades.

* NAPA 762-3164 Package says "Standard" type
* TRICO 44-160

Trico 44 Series Universal wiper refills are designed to fit most long frame TRICO, Tridon, Roberk, Anco, Pylon and Original Equipment plastic blades. Designed with metal end clips for ease of installation.
