Removing Rear Wiper

Hi All,

I've got a new style rear door I am trying to get painted. Trying to remove the wiper but just can't get it off. Any ideas or tricks?

I followed the manual and removed the nut behind the cap at the end. PB blasted and pulled but nothing. Some people said hit it with a mallet but there's not even really a place to hit it.

Thanks for the help.

Yes... but that nut only holds the wiper arm onto the door. I assume (as there was no way to remove the wiper arm from the motor on the other side) that wiper arm must come off that bolt so it can pass through the hole.

There was a nut above the wiper arm that I removed already. In all logically senses... that would allow to slip off. Maybe I am not using enough force....

I couldn't find a release tab or anything either. Nothing was mentioned about a tab for the REAR wiper in the manual.

A bit more careful force or a small puller will pop it right off. The spindle has fine splines.

This is a conical fit, they do get stucked often. A small 2 legs extractor is the best way, otherwise a spanner with a leverage point.

Barry gave me a suggestion that worked... loosened that nut that holds it to the door... and then hit the top of the bolt into the door and forced the arm to pop off. Did take some good pounding though...

Thanks!
