How to replace rear wiper arm?


Registered User
Hi guys

I've got some rear wiper arm from 8V, the one that accepts different kind of wiper blades.... And I would wanna switch it on my car.

Any ideas how to do it? Do I need to take off the interior plastics on the trunk door, or can it be done from outside?

My nut came of easily, the rest needed an hacksaw through it then a screwdriver in the slot made too prise it open.

To change just the arm you just pop the cover at the base, undo the nut then wiggle the arm free! They're usually corroded on so I invested in a wiper removal tool years ago and works every time!
