    How to remove 3055 windshield wiper arm-gctid397055

    Hi, My wiper arms are starting to look a little weather beaten, I am not sure if they were painted or powder coated but they need re-coating anyway, I just need to get them off first. Any tips please ?

    On my 4087, I removed the nut at the arm mount, then used a small puller to remove the arm from the motor shaft. I made a puller which is very similar to a battery post removal tool. Use some liquid wrench or similar product as there will probably be quite a bit of corrosion.

      Flip up the end caps and remove the nut holding them in place. Now wiggle them until the pop off. They are mounted to a splined shaft FYI. A good coat of tremclad lasts about 5 years. Been there, done that.

        Thanks for your reply. What's tremclad ? as I have never heard of it. It might be a product not available over here

          Just a popular brand of rust resistant spray paint available throughout North America. Did not realize your location.
