Title: Wiper apparatus

Abstract: In a wiper apparatus, a gear case of a gear part is provided with a first frame fixing part which is fixed to a frame member by fastening volts and fastening nuts. An attachment bracket has a second frame fixing part which is fixed to the frame member together with the first frame fixing part by the fastening volts and the fastening nuts, and has an insertion pin which is fixed to a rear-side vehicle-body panel. A wiper motor can be fixed to the frame member together with the attachment bracket by the same fastening members, and it is possible to reduce the weight of the wiper apparatus by reducing the number of the fastening members. It is possible to enhance the productivity of the wiper apparatus by reducing the size of the attachment bracket separated as a dedicated part from the gear case.
