Removing wiper arms

Post by JIMBOB326 » Sat Apr 14, 2012 7:13 pm

Ive been trying to remove the wiper arms but there is no space with the bonnet up or down to get any leverage to get them up. Any ideas?

You really need a small balljoint puller. Or you could lever it against the screen and break it, like someone on here did a few years back...

I spent a tenner on a wiper arm puller off ebay - worth the money in my opinion

Definately worth loosening the nuts and soaking with WD40 for a couple of days previous 8)
