Problem with rear wipers


My old rear wipers are going bad and tried to replace them. I just cant get old one off from the arm. Arm seems to be solid type so it cant be bent like most other manufacturer wipers.

Could anybody give me some tips?

from memory it's a nut and then very tight if you don't have a puller it may be as well to let a garage do it rather than cause some damage

That is correct if it is the arm that needs removing, but, if it is only the wiper/rubber assembly, it might be the type that just "snaps" into the plastic carrier, so should be able to "snap" it out, why not buy the correct wiper and have a look at it before breaking the old one or its carrier?

There would probably be two different types of wipers on these cars, early ones - maybe, had the traditional bridge type wiper like old style windscreen wipers - the later ones - maybe had Aero wipers that had a solid plastic carrier.
