I am trying to remove the wiper arms, but either I am missing something, or they are rusted on there really good. The pics show what I am working with. Is there something else I need to remove first? I just undid the nut that was on top of the wiper arm. Thanks for any imput guys.

Put some penetrating oil in there and let it work its way into the splines

I used a trim tool to pry the arm off the splines.

With out the removal tool, it'll be a complete pain in the rectum.
Penetrating agents and prying is the only way with out it.
Check with Snap-On, Matco, etc. for a remover. It'll make life easier.

I have one and I was using it. I just didnt want to pry too hard and break or dent the cowl, or the windshield. I'l try it like in the pic, thanks. I sprayed it on sat and will spray again tonight. Hopefully I'll get it one of these days.

Thanks for the walkthrough Seth... that is another problem I'm having. Might as well kill 2 birds with 1 stone.

Yep just takes some prying.. you'll see why once you get them apart

i did this with no tool. just took some time
my arms were faded and starting to rust. so i found a set at the JY on an 03 SE in near perfect shape. just takes some rocking, lil prying with screw driver, and pulling up. wasnt too bad

All I did was put a blanket on my hood to cover it from overspray and put newspaper under the arms then removed the wiper blades and scuffed the arms then painted them black. They look much better then they did.

I used some WD40 and a battery post puller that I saw posted on a similar thread. Wound up being a very cheap one.. ;crap.. but at least I got all the work done.

Pic of the puller when all was said and done... lol lol

The handle bar was straight when I bought it... lol

I just put a rag over the top of the post after taking the nut off and use channel locks and wiggle as I pull upward.
