How do I remove a stuck windshield wiper?
Remove the wiper blade from the wiper arm. Hook-slot connectors are shaped like a “j” at the end of the blade. This j-hook has a tab that needs to be lifted or pushed to release the blade. Once released, push or pull the blade down toward the base of the wiper arm to remove it from the hook slot.
