It snowed last night and instead of me scraping the ice and snow off like I usually do, I was rushing and did it with the wipers. Now they stay in the up position when I turn them off. I was reading where I can take the wiper arm off on the drivers side and pull the tab back. Problem is I can't get the wiper arm off. Please help it's bothering me riding with the wipers in thd up position

Been there, done that, and yea it sucks. What I did with the wiper arm was remove the nut holding it down, spray the bolt well with WD-40 & then alternate between hitting the wiper arm and the bolt until it loosened up. It takes awhile the first try, and usually some force. After doing it once though it's much easier. Bending back the tab is easy but keep in mind that it is now weakened more than before, and will bend back down easier. Ask me how I know this Wink
