Default Removing Rear Wiper

Can anyone advise me on the procedure for removing the rear wiper arm from a Legacy Wagon (in my case, a '91)? It is rusty, and I would like to refinish it, but cannot remove it, even after removing the 10 mm spindle nut.

Thanks for any and all help.

I would like to know this for a '98, too. I'm assuming it's the same, but you never know.

Mine is 7 years newer and it's rusty too

After my attempts at removing said wiper on my wagon I would suggest this, get a small gear or bearing puller. They are available from Autozone as loaner tools. The wiper arm gets so corroded to the shaft that you are likely to break the shaft trying anything else.

I got the wiper off my 94 using this approach. On my 97 however the nut was so corroded to the shaft, it broke the end of the shaft off when I tried to loosen it. I left it alone at that point cause the corrosion is all that is holding it on. That was about a year ago. I masked off the whole back area of the car and painted the wiper arm anyway.

You'd probably be better off just replacing the thing. The spring will likely be rusted too, and you won't get as good of tension.

New, I think they are about $20.
