Did some work on the car last week thought I'd share a few tips for wiper removal and repair.What happened was the tip of the hose coming out of the wiper cowl had broken and I got 1 from No moa.Installed it 2 weeks ago and tried to put the hose on it and it would'nt reach I realized i had installed it wrong.
#1 Remove wiper blades .Easier to move the arms with them off.
#2 Pry off the plastic covers over the wiper arm bolts.They will break !
#3 Lift up on the wiper arm and install *PIN or nail in the hole in the side of arm.
*Don't know the size guess you'll have to guesstimate.I installed new OEM arms
and they came with new pins.
#4 remove the nut scratch I'll check later for the size.
#5 wiggle the arm .It should pop right off.

The trickiest part of putting everything back together is getting the arms in the right position.
Put the blades back on and try them there's no way to get them perfect without actually turning wipers on and readjusting if needed.
I also found that attaching the washer hose before reinstalling the cowl is best as nozzles are kinda flimsy

I've done the terminal puller before .Try the pin you'll be amazed how easy they come off.
