  • Publication number: 20150367820
    Abstract: A wiper of a motor vehicle window is disclosed. The wiper includes a mounting head adapted to be rotatably driven by a motorized shaft about a transverse axis of the mounting head, and a drive arm extending along a longitudinal axis between a proximal end pivotally mounted about an axis borne by said mounting head, and an opposite distal end which carries a wiper blade, where an elastic return means is provided to participate in maintaining the arm in position relative to the mounting head. The drive arm includes a shroud disposed at its proximal end and wholly encloses the mounting head. The shroud has projecting means on its inner face, cooperating with complementary means projecting from the outer face of the mounting head to form pivoting means of the arm around the head and means for holding the arm in position in various operating positions of the wiper assembly.
