Re: 83 cj7 windshield frame
To get the wiper arms off the pivots:
There is a small "clip" under the wiper arm, right at the pivot. Gently push this away from the pivot and pull or pry on the arm to slide it off the splined shaft. There is a step that the clip fits into that prevents the wiper arm from falling off. The arm should slide off the pivot fairly easy.
To get the pivots out of the windshield frame:
Once the wiper arms are off, this is a piece of cake! Just unscrew the nut on the outside of the w/s frame, pull the plastic oval shaped plugs out of the back (interior) of the w/s frame, and slide the pivots out. You will have to unclip the wiper actuation arms from the pivots to remove them as well (inside the w/s frame ).
Good luck! Hope I helped.
