Remove rear wiper arm on '05 Grand Cherokee?

Ok, I thought this would be easy. Bought the new wiper arm but cannot figure out how to remove my old one. Removed the nut and that's as far as I got. I contacted the place who sold me the arm, but they said I should buy their wiper arm removal tool for $10. There must be another way?? Thanks for your help.

Just get the removal tool, AutoZone may be able to loan you one with a refundable deposit.

It's a lot better than accidentally scratching your Jeep when you try some other method.

Hi
Leave the nut on just bit so the arm doesn't go flying and give the arm a good wiggle.

No point of buying a tool, you may need it just once in a year.
I would lost it in that time period

The easiest way to get it off is to leave the nut on part way and use a small 2 or 3 prong hub puller. Put the puller on and tighten it up and it will pop right off.

When I took my front one off, I was just about to give up and pulled as hard as I could and it came off. Just make sure you don't fall on your *** when it breaks loose!

Finally got mine replaced.

I bought and removed a good one off a wrecked Jeep easy enough, but couldn't get the broken one off my Jeep no matter what. I tried everything I could think of over the course of two days finally giving up and buying a wiper arm puller from AutoZone ($13). Took about 5 minutes and the old arm was off. Thank God, it was getting very frustrating.

Don't waste money on a tool. Trick: one zip-tie under the cap, one more on either side of the first (3 zip ties total), back of a hammer, elbow grease, voila. Nothing get scuffed, pops right off bc of even weight distribution.

The way I always remove wiper arms is take the nut loose leaving 75 percent on the threads and hit the nut with a hammer while pulling on the arm, usually pops right off

Yeah I don't want to swing hammers and rig all kinds of crap on my vehicle, especially around my windshield, or back window, or any glass for that matter.

I'd rather spend the ten bucks on a puller and do it the right way.

Right tool for the right job.

The hammer is only for leverage. No swinging. And the zip ties are soft plastic. It's the Mcgiver'd version of the $10 waste of a tool. Up to you though! Good luck
