    Wind screen wiper problems

    Hi guys, has anyone got any idea how to take off the windscreen wiper arms on a mk4 astra (coupe), I have tried removing the nut that holds the wiper arm however the arm doesn't come loose. Is it a case of give it a good tug and it comes off or is there a technique as I don't really want to brake them.

    Cheers,

    Iain

    You can also try the proper tool. It removes them easily and won't do any damage!!

    I've used various levers to remove wiper arms successfully, but if they are very corroded then the tool is much easier.
