The windshield wiper arm on the Chevy Silverado is attached to a wiper motor located under the cowl at the base of the windshield. When the wiper arm needs to be replaced, it's usually because the spring tension is gone due to a failed spring, or because the claw on the arm that connects to the wiper blade is chipped or broken.
