    Good evening chaps. I tried to get the rear wiper off my car last week to replace it with a glass plug. Couldnt get the bugger off, i couldnt even persuade it with a hammer. Followed the guidance on this forum and a few others. Boot liner off, wiper arm nut off & then pull wiper arm off? It looks like the bolt from the motor has seized on to the arm. Has anyone had any luck getting theirs off when its seized this bad? theres some wiper removal tools on ebay, would these be worth a shot?
    Thanks

    I had to change my wiper arm the other day, was seized on, i got a little pulling tool, with a day of soaking WD40 through it and some force it came off.

    Just a question though, why are you taking it off? Won't it really get on you nerves having a rear window you cant see through......
