Wiper Pivot Installation

Hi,

I am trying to install an wiper pivot and joint assembly on my HZ after the old one was damage and had the nut popped off the rotating pin.

Am having an incredibly difficult time removing and installing the old and new one from what I thought would be the easiest method, the top firewall recess infront of the hood and window.

What is the easiest way to do this? Am I required to dissasemble the dash and go through the vents as one person has informed me? And if so, what is involved as I am a novice.

Thank-you in advance.

Hi Fella

DO NOT PULL YOUR DASH APART. The arms are a bugger to pull off but try to lever the arm offby putting a screwdriver under it and use some crc. My self I would (VERY VERY CAREFULLY) is to screw the nut back on till the bolt and the threaded shaft are flush and then get hold of light hammer and give it a firm but NOT TOO HARD HIT, because if you hit too hard you WILL DAMAGAE the wiper shaft and what ever is under it. then try lift the arm upwards as you hit it. These are usually been on since the day it was made so be patient and you will get it off.

Not sure about the HZ but the aluminium corrodes with the iron a bit...crc like yogie said maybe penetrine. Before you get the sleadhammer give the outside a bit of heat and try again.

Thanks for you help. The part I am wanting to replace is the pivot and internal linkage arm, the one that joins to the back of the wiper motor.

Thanks for you comments, I will see what I can do today.

Cheers.
