    I'm Mike, make sure you spell it right, because I do not want to get the wrong A$$hole in trouble.

    If you do not have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time do do it over?

    There's a clip which is a real PITA to get on the bottom side of the arm, and then it's a pulling, pushing, BFH death match. Most times the wiper arm wins. The real fun part is when you go and reinstall the arm, and it's off by a couple of teeth .

    Default wiper arm

    maybe i got lucky. I pulled back on the wiper blade and pushed in on the hinge at the wiper shaft while pulling on the cup part of the arm. actually,it was one swift easy movement.then i looked underneath to see how it was held on.there is a little lock tab thing. then the other.....voila' easy as the first....now..if i have a hard time getting it on i am either gonna cuss Java Tea ! or thank him for letting me know the splines have to be alligned properly. and i guess the fact that i didnt tape the splines when i painted it until midway through shooting it isnt gonna help it go any smoother,,,,,Shiite !!!!

    If they aren't aligned properly you'll look like that guy in Winston with a camo paint scheme CJ5 whose wipers are off



    If I jinxed you, then we can put on our kilts and go have a pint (or two).
