    Just as it sounds... anyone know how to do this? I unscrewed the bolt where it pivots from thinking it would slide right off, but silly me for thinking that would be it. I need to take off the whole arm-- not just the blade. I can't seem to find any tutorials, so any help is appreciated!

    On other vehicles rear wiper arm removal after the removing the nut just needed steady upwards pressure to free the arm from the splines. Haven't touched the JK yet.

    More research indicates you need a gear puller to do this and it's very easy to damage the rest of the assembly. Blades getting set aside until the next oil change or repair in a shop.

    A gear puller?? A couple screw drivers usually works just as well. Just use caution....of coarse.
