Default Wiper arm removal

Gonna be attempting to change the wiper motors on my 407 this weekend seen as the weathers supposed to warm up. Anyway on the motor removal guide on 407 owners it mentions using a special tool to remove arms, do you need this or do they come off quite easily?

Depends to be fair.

I have done them on my 307 and the rear one is a tricky character. I used a puller and spanner and it came off a treat with WD40 assistance

Good Luck

I suppose it's the front ones.

I don't have a puller, and I got one off and one ended up broken when I needed to remove them from my dads car. It was corroded really bad to the wiper motor splines, so I had to hit it with the hammer, at the same time as I was pulling and twisting it all over the place.

So if there's a kind of puller that can be obtained easily that might be a good idea. But you'll find out if they are stuck or not if you just try to remove them.

The front ones can be hard too indeed.

It is one of my worst dreaded jobs on cars that haven't seen a wiper arm replacement for a long time.... they get seized and rusted making it so difficult to get off working near a glass screeen!

Here is the puller I used;

Or a cheaper one;

Hope that helps. An essential item in my car toolbox... perfect for other uses too

I had to use so much force it was quite insane. Continously hitting with a sledgehammer onto the arm close to shaft at the same time as the wiper arm was forced in both directions to try to get it loose.

Was really afraid of mashing the windscreen with the sledgehammer

Just a brief update to this with regards to purchasing. I've just bought the Sealey one from Ebay as it was a little cheaper than the Amazon price. I'll report on the quality of service when it arrives.
