Windshield Wiper Problem
 
My brother got a 2008 WK a few months ago and he is having trouble with his windshield wipers. He said that they are not going down all the way as if something is stuck in them, but there is nothing there. Does anyone here have an idea of what it may be?

someone before he bought it may have had the wiper arms off and then didnt return them to the same position on the shaft. Each wiper arm has a cap covering the bolt that hold them on. Remove the cap, remove the nut and then pull up to remove the wiper arm. they are tough to get off at first. He may want to mark the arm and shaft so he doesnt replace them at the same spot on the shaft.

^^^what he said. Bending the arm back at the joint prior to trying to pull off will be beneficial.

When i took mine off i used a piece of chalk to mark where they rest, just rock them from side to side and they come off fairly easy.
