I bought a cheap puller- billed as a wiper arm/battery terminal puller from ebay and it pulled off the wiper arm, leaving the alloy internal bit fixed to the shaft. I cut the inside of this with a junior hacksaw and split it with a flat screwdriver. Then take the plastic cover off of the shaft where the wiper blade attaches and then take off the little circlip that keeps the shaft in place. Wiggle the arm out- if it's anything like mine, this will take a pair of pliers and 20 minutes- don't attempt to take the mechanism off the glass, the big nut under the plastic cover is usually welded to it and sheers off! Clean up the shaft, clean out the hole, grease and reassemble. Then buy a new wiper arm (30 approx new), fit and Robert is your fathers brother!

Well so far I'm at the same stage as the part where the plastic wiper seperated from the knurled insert (after using a puller), which at the moment is still firmly "welded" to the shaft.

Work in

Once I had reached the stage of exposing the knurled alloy bush, it is obviously much too small to get a decent grip with a puller. I made up a thick steel washer about 3 inches in diameter with a centre hole the same diameter as the shaft and then cut out a slot from centre hole to edge which is the same width as the shaft. Slide the washer onto the shaft, beneath the alloy bush and it is then much easier to clamp a cheap three leg puller onto the washer you have made and wind the puller in to free off the alloy bush. Once everything is cleaned off and the shaft copper-greased, all you need to do is Araldite the bush back into the wiper arm and then reassemble. Even using the puller, the alloy bush frees with quite a jolt so whatever you do, don't be tempted to put too much stress on the bush when you try to remove it. It is all too easy to break your rear window and UP goes the cost of the repair.

I gave up and cut off the knurled insert. I then tried to knock the spindle out, but in doing so the alloy mount snapped. So I've sourced a second had set up, but at least I managed to remove it all without breaking the glass

Typical pish poor Renault quality.
