I have created this thread to have a place to stash and test pics for uploading. The picture files below were too large to use as attachments so for now, I'm linking them to Photobucket.

The following will be reposted in the appropriate thread once I'm sure the format works. There will no doubt be more posts in this thread as issues with the car arise.

Here is the left (driver's side) headlight wiper/washer on my '00 V70 XC. The P.O. snapped off part of the bracket that holds the wiper when they tried to replace it and were apparently stumped on how to fix it. Enter Dig.

Note that I have already wiggled the fluid hose and removed it from the nipple which is just below the headlight to the far right in the pic. For photo reference purposes, I placed it back into position without actually fitting it back over the nipple.

The cap that covers the nut on the wiper stem flips up for easy access.

It's probably metric but I used a 5/16th socket and ratchet with no problem when I removed the nut.

The arm is mounted on a shaft with a tapered spline so you'll need a pair of pliers to grip and wiggle it to pull it off.

Voila! Ready to reverse the procedure to install the replacement. It's off to the "Pick 'n' Pull to see if I can find one.

Note the tapered spline.
