    Default Front wiper arm removal?

    Do you need some kind of puller? I have tried g clamps to help remove/lift them off the splines & they won't shift... any tips will be helpful, i desperately need to remove the scuttle.

    Sometimes they do become stuck and you require a puller..

    Try covering it in WD40 and the try and apply pressure evenly, although that may be difficult.

    You can get wiper arm pullers as they sometimes can become stuck quite hard

    We had this one yesterday - I bought one of these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VS807-BRAN...ht_4195wt_1037 You'll probably never use it again but handy bit of kit - don't try forcing them too much witout the right tool as you can easily damage the3 arm and the driving mechanism/arms etc

    I'd just ring a local garage and ask if you can use there tool and loosen it of then reassemble with some oil/grease so it don't stick again for future removal.
