I have a g3 teg and i'm trying to remove the rear wiper arm so i can repaint it. I removed the plastic cap, then the nut. i then tryed pulling it off but had no luck. is there something else you need to do?
I removed the plastic cover and nut, but no matter how hard I pull or how much I wiggle, that arm just will not come off. Front ones won't come off either...has anyone else ever run into problems getting them off? I've been folding the arm up, and still no luck. tried with it down, too. P.S. I know this thread is old.
I had to "gently force" the arms off with the help of a wide blade screwdriver. This is NOT the reccomended way of doing it, but if you're very careful and take your time, the rear glass shouldn't shatter.
i had this problem and got mine off last week. I took a screw driver and went around gently prying upward between the wiper arm and rubber bushing between the glass. There are grooves on the inside of the wiper arm, and the grooves on the shaft out of the wiper motor. they interlock so the motor transfers motion to the wiper. I think they were a little off on my 96, possible from the motion of the wiper or some installed wrong. Just be carful around that glass, its gonna be expensive if you break it.
I figured out how to do this after Busting a window at the junkyard trying to get it off
there's a thin cap at the base over a nut that once you take it off the whole thing comes right apart no problem.
