    Default Removing wiper arm

    I was trying to get the wiper arms off my truck to paint them today.

    1996 GMC Sierra

    After I pulled back the little clip, the arm won't let go of the spindle shaft?
    Any ideas? besides a BFH (Fiero) Is there a puller for this? I'm pretty sure there is no nut under the arm.

    It is probably corroded a bit, just try wiggling it while pulling on it, it should come off if the tab is pulled out far enough.

    There are two main ways to change out these arms. One is a direct slip-in male to female type connection. The other is the push-in the connector and slip off the reverse "C" fitting with some finese.

    I have seen these get corroded and be a bear to change. Get some WD-40 and hit that puppy and see it's it breaks free.
