    I finally started tearing into my blazer today. It has been parked untouched since May 25, 1997. I have the front end cap torn off, but I can't figure out how to get d@mned windsheild wiper arms off. My goal is to start sandblasting by monday, so they must go. Thanks for the help.

    There's a special forked tool that you are supposed to use, but a little shop towel wrapped around a flatblade screwdriver will work OK too.....

    They are just pressed onto a splined shaft....it's seems like there is a setscrew or something, but there isn't. Just get some leverage underneath it, and they will work loose.

    A Claw hammer, used gently with the claw portion will unlock the spring, and let You slip them off. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Usually You can run Your finger around the bottom edge, and find the clip, I do this and usually bleed from it, but I know where it is. /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    Thanks for the help. I will try to take some before pics on Friday if I can borrow a friends digi cam. All hell is breaking loose in the backyard this summer. I have been stockpiling parts all year, now its time to get it back on the road.
