How to restore wiper arms

Recommended Posts

At £29 per replacement arm, let’s make them new for a tenner. 

Primer & satin black aerosol & wire wool, £10 from Wilko. Cheap!

Flat wipers £5.70 PAIR from Amazon. (21”& 19” ) free delivery if you’re in no hurry. Bargain!

1. Open bonnet. Lever cap off nut using small flat blade screwdriver. 

2. Unbolt nuts with 13mm ring spanner or small socket set. 

3.  Lift off arms from spindles. Do not twist as you’ll damage splines. 

4. Rub down arms with wire wool. Spray grey primer lightly, 2 coats. Spray 2 light coats satin black. Always wait 15 mins between coats to allow to dry. Now leave for 24 hours to fully harden. 

5. Replace wiper blades now if needed, then refit, reverse of removal. Use copper ease on nuts to stop rust too.
