Replace rear wiper assembly

I am in process of replacing my busted rear glass tonight, and am to the point where I need to re-install the rear wiper assembly. Problem is I have no idea how to get the wiper arm detached so I can get the new assmbly mounted. I have removed the plastic cover and the main bolt, but the wipr arm is still securely in place. Anyone know if it pulls straight off, or is it threaded and need to be twisted off? Help!!!

it should pull off, never seen a wiper that twisted off. Its been long time since I had my hard top, does the wiper pivot away from the glass like the windshield ones do? sometimes you have to pivot them to be able to pull the arm off.

you removed a bolt or nut holding it?

Its driving me nuts. It looks like it should pull off....

See the pics below. THere is a shaft (which is a screw), the wiper arm, and a nut on top. The nut came off, and I can not figure out to get the stupid wiper arm off! Suggestions are welcome!

Subscribed because tree limbs have scratched my top and jammed in my third light ...only a matter of time. Can you try a gear puller or is there too much resistance?

I am a troll. Do not take my advice. It isn't going to help.

I've pulled pretty hard

I don't think its something that should require that much force, and I don't want to break the wiper arm. It seems like there must be some kind of trick to getting this off, but I can't figure it out.

1. Remove wiper assembly from rear glass

2. Plug the hole in the glass

3. Throw wiper motor in the trash.


I bought a hard top and my Jeep isn't wired for any of it. No plans to do so. It's a fawking Jeep.

I've replaced the rear wiper motor in my old liberty, so this should be pretty close.

The arm will pull straight off but you're going to have to work for it. I used a screwdriver and then a box wrench to work the arm up the shaft (boy that just sounds wrong).

When you reassmeble. hook all the wiring up first and turn it on once to reset the motor to neutral. This will make sure that the arm is in the correct reseting position. A little anti-seize on the shaft won't hurt either.

Hope this helps you out. Oh Haynes Manuals are worth their weight in gold if you don't have one already.

How did the prying affect the washer between the glass and the arm?

Almost 8 year late to ask that question. How about you go and test it and get back to us?
