    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

    WD40 and rock it from side to side while pulling up ward or give it a light tap with a mallet white pulling it up
