Wiper Transplant Tips Needed

Took a pretty quick inspection of the wiper arms- exactly how do those things come off? Obviously, pulled straight off toward the front- but where's the little release doodad?

There is no release you will have to lift the wiper arm up and pull the barrel off of the stud.

Are you asking about the part that holds the blade and is attached to a stud on the wiper arm or are you asking about the wiper arm that attaches to the wiper pivot and hold the blade assembly?

There is a release tab to get the arms off of the pivots.

Arms from pivots- I can pretty much see the rest of the assembly in the old WS frame. Getting it into the new one- and getting it to work- 'nother story.

Yes, Mine also has a spring tab you had to pull away from the pivot to get the arm off. Many rust away though.
