Re: Happy Fourth & Wiper Arm Removal



The 65 wiper, at least on a B-Body, is not held in place by a bolt or other fastner. It's mostly held on by tension. There is a very small tab at the bottom of the wiper arm that goes under the post off the wiper arm that keep it from lifting (usually). 

I ended up buying a special tool to remove mine, for example:  https://yearone.com/Product/1966-74-a-b-e-body/t81/CrossSell . using the tool and a small screw driver to move the tab off the post, you can easily remove the wiper. otherwise, in my experience, it's difficult. Unless, of course, you are driving in a very heavy rain in which case they fall off on their own - experienced that a couple of times.

http://1962to1965mopar.ornocar.com/techstuff.html about 1/2 way down has "Removing a windshield wiper arm from a 1962 to 1965 Mopar style arm with a bolt holding the arm in place..." but the basic technique should be the same for your '65 which does not have the bolt IIRC.

Happy 4th too!
