Quick question, does the rear wiper have a nut holding it on like the front ones, or does the boot interior trim have to be removed?

It needs tarting up a bit and would be better painted inside the house at this time of year.

Thanks.

the actual arm part is held on by a nut no need to remove the motor.

Its only if you wanna remove the motor that you have to take out the boot trim.

The arm is a right pain in the arse to actually get off in my experience.
When the nut is put on it pushes 2 parts of (what I presume is metal) together that kind of end up welding themselves together and are therefore a bit of a bugger to separate.

Does the plastic cover with the washer jets just lift up like the front ones?

The fitting itself is a splined taper than sits inside a bush. The two corrode together.

Tape up your back window and stealth spray it on the car lol, it's far less hassle.

It's not that bad you pussies. LOL

Take the plastic cap off, then the nut and wiggle the arm towards and away from the screen and spray some penetrating fluid around the joint. Thumbs up

Don't go mental though else you could break the motor assembly.

I must have had half a can of wd40 on it, wiggled and pulled it to the point of being worried I would rip the boot lid off! LOL
Mine must have just been particularly 'weathered' I guess!

Dude I was plus gassing mine for a week, and my wiggling was more than persuasive lol.

If you have a bearing puller use it. I cut through the arm on mine as the motor was being binned anyway, and drifted the remains out of the arm in a vice. Whistle

Did this today, dead easy. Nut came straight off and then with a bit of persuasion so did the arm.

Now all painted up and ready to go back on.

Grr, in the process of trying to do this now.

Took the plastic cover off and the nut and the arm looks like it's joined to the thread. I take it that it isn't joined and should just slide off?

I've scrubbed it with a wire brush as it had discoloured etc so is it just a case of wd40 and wiggle then?

It'll slide off now. The splines on the arm are just engaged with those on the shaft. Thumbs up

Edit: Is yours a phase 3? It might be different but I can't confirm one way or the other.

Phase 3 still uses a splined taper, you just can't see it as the bush inside the wiper arm will be stuck fast. Your only hope is to keep lacing it with penetrating fluid and pray. You'll more than likely break the arm getting it to come off. Use a bearing puller if you have one.

I could tell just by looking at mine that it was going to be a right pain to do it on the car so I took the motor off the car, clamped it in a vice and cut through the aluminium centre that the arm had broken away from with a grinder.

Changing the arm took less than 15 minutes in total, including removing and replacing the trim panel and motor.

Yep ph3, I'm changing the motor so have a spare motor so can see how it connects.

Tempted to order a new arm and just bash the shit out of it Razz

If I loosen the motor and the sleeve I should be able to hit the pin with a hammer if you know what I mean... hmm

If the motor is coming off cause it's faulty, cut the spindle off, then drift the remains out of the arm in a vice.

Finally got it off, with light fading decided to cut the spindle as said. Razz

But when trying to remove said spindle from the arm the metal collar from the wiper arm came out, :/

New wiper arm time!

Anyone remember how much they are from Pug? Think I've seen them for 23 deliver on eBay.

Thanks

Drift the spindle out now then, then glue/push it back in the plastic arm, it's only a press fit to start.
