Btw, I thought the lock actuator was easy, but the window cover was a royal PITA. I couldn't find a puller anywhere which fit, so ended up buying one and taking a grinder to make it fit to get the wiper arms off.

Ahhhh.....the window cover was a breeze with the correct tool. I found one at Check Auto, it is called a battery terminal and windshield wiper arm puller. I actually bought mine from Summit Racing which was cheaper. Also they are on E-bay.

The one I got is adjustable. You open it turn a knob at top and it grabs the arm and pushes against the post and it just comes right off.



Lisle Wiper Arm Puller (54150) $16.97 - Summit Racing. Like $32 over at Checker.

The puller I found at the local parts house had fixed fingers too narrow to slide past the stem. I made it work, nothing like air tools and grinders.
