Re: Wiper puller/grabber .. Help!

i had similar problem on laguna sports tourer rear tailgate window,in the end i took of the retaining nut,used cordless drill ,4mm diameter+/-to drill on the splined shaft and the wiper arm body,ie where they meet ,then insert a screwdriver and twist it to break the seal,,if you are carefull you can still use the drilled arm if you dont go right through the body of the arm,the problem is cased by aluminium corrosion to the splines,you will see many lagunas with the rear wiper not parked properly,this has to be done to get the arm off then drill out the 10 mm bore,to clean out the road dirt that built up ,done it .it works

ps drill at an angle to suit the splined shaft,about 11 oclock outwards
