    Robert Short , here is what you've got to move - this little tab that grips a groove in the wiper post:

    Lisle makes a tool specifically for this, but I've done it using a right-angle awl:

    You just have to be certain you're pulling on the tab, not on the post, which is pot metal and can be damaged pretty easily.

    A little leverage from the other side while you're pulling the tab and it pops off easily.

    If you look closely there is a tiny stainless spring 'lip' that keeps the arm from sliding up off the pivot.
    Just the right amount of prying will overcome that little retention design.

    Needle nose pliers gently worked in under will remove stubborn wipers if you don’t have the tool.

    HEAVILY protect your paint with a towel, pull the blade assembly up as far as you can, and pry underneath the "cap" where it sits on the post. it will pop right off!

  • Windshield WIPER ARM REMOVAL for 55 Studebaker President Speedster

    I am having difficulty discovering how to remove the windshield wiper arm from its post so that I can begin to investigate why my 1955 Studebaker President Speedster windshield wipers are not working . Help me, please, or refer me to someplace where I may get answers. Thank you.
