    confused Signum rear wiper blade !!!

    Considering the work I've done on cars over the years, I can't believe I'm asking this question.

    Can anyone tell me how to get the rear wiper blade off my 2004 Signum so I can fit the new one ???

    It looks as though the arm should be lifted up, blade rotated and pushed in towards the arm but nothing is moving!! I'm afraid that the application of a good chunk of brute force and ignorance is going to break something and end up with more cost.

    Any pearls of wisdom will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance guys,



    Graham.

    Just checked mine and it simply pushes off the arm m8

    Lift the arm slightly and press on the wiper and it comes off it's clip.

    Thanks for the advice but it didn't seem to work like that.

    I was demonstrating the problem to she-who-must-be-obeyed and pushing the blade towards the arm just wasn't doing anything but I noticed that the blade was only rotating about 45 degrees to the arm so I tried rotating it a bit further ..... 90 degrees seemed a reasonable expectation ......... it made a loud click and came of in my hand (as they say !). Nothing appeared to be broken so I gently pushed the new blade onto the arm and it clicked into place. Job done !!!!

    I was dumfounded but it worked. Too easy I guess ?

    Does anyone know if there is a workshop manual of any kind for the Signum? I haven't managed to find one yet.

    Haynes are bringing out one in July for the Vectra - I'm not sure if it covers the Signum as well though. Obviously a lot of it will be relevant to the Signum, but not everything.

    I reckon Vauxhall should publish a reasonable Workshop manual for their cars.

    If they do, perhaps they could let their dealers workshops have a copy - lol
