The plastic retaining nut under the windshield wiper arm on my 93 YJ has cracked. Can anyone tell me how to remove the wiper arm to access the nut ? Jeep says that the nuts cost $13 each ( quite a bit for a piece of plastic), but I have to remove the arm first. I've read about sticking a pin through the hole in the side of the arm but there doesn't seem to be any mechanism to depress, etc. The base of the arm doesn't seem to have any tab to pull (another method I've read). I'm confused and don't want to pry the arm off only to find that I've destroyed something and can't re-attach it.
Any assistance will be appreciated. Thanks.
pull the wiper as far away from the windshield as you can, then there is a hole that is on both sides (top and bottom) of the wiper arm, put a pin in the hole and let the wiper go, you should be able to pull it off then, i can get pics tomorrow
A) what is the big plastic thing?
B) the OP posted this in 2010 and the pin in the hole detailed by the pics is how to do that part. Don't just pry it off because that may break something if you are unlucky
C) post a pic because we can't see the plastic thing that you see in your head
D) is anyone else fascinated that the OP joined in 2003 but only posted 5 times to 2010?!
