    Hey dudes, how do I unclip the wiper arms so I can remove the cowl?
    I poked around with it and figured I would ask before I go bending the BZZZZ out of it /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
    Thanks

    HAHAHAHAHAHA

    I knew this question was coming! It usually does after someone asks "Hey how do I remove the front clip?" /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif


    The wipers are pressed on to a splined shaft. There is no set screw or other secret stuff going on. All you have to do is lay a towel down around it, and pry up (GENTLY) on the underside of the wiperarms near the shaft with a screwdriver or a more appropriate tool. They will simply FLY off and sail either into your eye, or onto an adjacently parked vehicle....placing a big scratch on the hood.


    .... or maybe you'll be lucky. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Mine have a funky little clip holding them on the splined shaft, but if you can't get to it (PITA) they'll still come off.

    My cowl was a pain to get off as a couple of the threaded nuts for the cowl broke loose and the bolt just spun and spun ...

    I was afraid the spinning nut was gonna bite me too but I got lucky and the bolts came out. My wiper arms did pop off like Greg said they would. So I got the cowl off. Next step...they whole clipA Roooski /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
