Wiper arm removal
Posted 15 February 2005 - 06:23 PM
I have a Classic LHD Mini Cooper 1996 (with a Rover engine). The car is fitted with stainless steel wiper arms and 10" blades. The wiper blades needed changing, and I ordered some new blades from MiniSpares which cost me a fare bit to get sent to Luxembourg (that's where I am). Now, I made the mistake of ordering 11" wiper blades thinking that the wiper arm fitting should be the same as the 10" blades. Wrong!!. I now have the problem that I have to wedge some cardboard strips into the fitting to prevent the blades to not flying off imeddiately I use them. This of course is not the ideal solution, and I have to stop every now and then to replace the bit of (by now soggy) card.
I also got with the car the original wiper arms with conventional blades (making it easier to replace as I can get them from any car parts supplier in Lux).
My problem is I cannot figure out how to remove the wiper arms. I have spent hours in the freezing cold to try and remove them. It looks pretty simple (from looking at the spare ones I have), but can I get them off? Can I hell!!
Is there some trick, or special tool I need to do this?
Please help if you can.
Thanks a million.
