    Maybe this is a dumb question but how the hell do you get the windshield wiper arm off the shaft? I'm gonna repaint the whole thing and tried for 20 minutes to get the thing off.

    Thanks.

    Flip the arm out like you're going to wash the windshield.
    Look at the base where it mounts and you'll see a small tab facing the top of the truck. Pull that tab out and the arm will just pull right off.

    Pull tab out...ok thanks I'll try it. I was pushing down on the tab and using a screwdriver trying to pry it off.

    haha...Wrong way. If yours have never been off before, you might need a screwdriver to pry the tab up. Both my trucks get the wipers exercised well, so they're pretty easy.

    Just turn your wipers on and let them come up some and then turn off the key locking them up. That's how anyone I've known with a cowl has always done it.

    You can pull them off with the wiper still against the glass, I've done it several times on Jess' truck.
