    Wiper arm removal tips???

    Hi guys just wondering if anyone has any helpful tips on how to get the drivers side wiper arm off.??

    Ive taken the nut cover off and undone the nut ok but ive tried just about everything to get the bloody arm off but its having none of it.

    I read on another forum its best to try and use a rocking motion at the base to get it off but its like its glued on, I even slipped once and nearly smashed my windscreen with my grips.

    Any help much appreciated

    Cheers

    Steve

    Left & Right, Up & Down will get them off.
    Some are harder than others but they all come off in the end.

    I tried with the tool once and it wouldnt work in the end good old fashioned elbow grease moving it up and down side to side worked in the end!!

    Very easy with a tool. Puller with thin claws when the plastic cover around the wiper arms is an annoying obstacle.
    I used something like this in correct size. This might be too big

    Plus a friends hands to hold it in place. My tool had thicker claws.
