Advice Needed On Taking Wiper Arms Off


I need to change the position of wiper arms on my Renault Grand Scenic Dynamique 1.9 DCI (2005) as they are too high. Just wondered if this is an easy task and if there are any pitfalls to watch out for?

You'll need a puller of some description, such as this;

Don't try and wiggle them off, use the proper tool otherwise you risk stripping the grip vanes of the spindles making for an horrendous repair job.

just slacken the nut off and give the wiper arm a good tug.i have been in the motor trade over 40 years and i have never used a puller or striped any grip vanes.

Re: Advice Needed On Taking Wiper Arms Off

I can vouch for using the puller. An essential tool when removing wiper arms especially on rear wipers which are mounted in the glass of the rear window where using brute force could end up in an expensive repair.

A very, very light wipe of copper grease or such on the splines when refitting will aid future removal.
