I cannot open your attachment as the message says the "file is damaged and cannot be repaired "
could you please rectify
Thank you -- The job looks as if it just needs the wiper arm re-aligned . I presume the the screwed rod with the nut on the end is also splined to accept the wiper movement , I have taken the nut off and sprayed the splines (If it is splines below there) with loosening lubricant but cannot get the arm to come off . Do you have any further tips please.
Suspect it may be rusted on.
Thank you -- will try again tomorrow
Would a little heat on the splines to help them expand help?
Thank you I am unable to get to my car today because of the weather conditions here --- yet another 6ins. snow last night.
Will be in touch as soon as I can look at it tomorrow I hope.
Thank you for your help. After a bit of a fiddle I managed to get the job done. Then I discovered that the control arms under the bonnet had bent and once I straightened them out all was ok .
Your support appreciated.
