Saab Rear Winshield Wiper

saab
9-3

#1

How can I remove the rear wiper on a 2000 Saab 9-3? The entire arm is loose on the shaft of the motor and does not work. I cannot find a set screw or way to remove it.


#2

On some cars the lower portion of the rear wiper arm pivots up to reveal the nut that attaches the arm to the shaft.


#3

Remove the cover at the base of the arm. You may have to get a puller to remove the arm. The wiper arm is a press fit that is held in place with splines.


#4

The base of the wiper arm is a cover. Once I lifted this there was a nut that needed to be tightened. The wiper arm fit onto the splines of the motor shaft and then is held by the nut.

Thanks for the suggestions and help.
