From the upright position, push the armrest in towards the seat and rotate it backwards a few inches. It will pop off when it is in the right spot. Be careful not to lose the curved washer that goes on the pin as you will need that to reinstall the armrest.

I had issues with the arm rest coming loose and wobbling and I ended up removing the driver side arm rest and the passenger side arm rest and swapping the two. To remove the arm rest, peel back the velcro at the base of the arm rest, peeling back the cover and revealing the bolt. Then, simply loosen the bolt using a Torx bit size T60 I believe, and that should remove the arm rest.

According to my internet research, to change the pitman and idler arm on a Chevy truck, one must remove the two bolts holding the idler arm as well as the nut holding it to the truck. Then to remove the pitman arm, remove the nut and the drag link.

Remove the nut holding the idler arm to the center link. Separate the joint with a "pickle fork". Remove the two bolts and nuts from the frame end of the idler arm. Remove idler arm.

What are you removing? The blades or the arms

A person can get the old wiper blades off the wiper arms of a Chevy Astro Van by pressing the release latch and sliding them out the end. This allows the blades themselves to be changed without removing the whole arm.

In order to remove the turn signal lever from a 66 Suburban you have to remove the steering wheel then there is a single Phillips head screw that holds the arm to the switch.

There will be a cover on the end where the arm connects to the motor. If you remove that small plastic cover there is a 13mm nut threaded onto a bolt. If you remove that bolt and other hardware that follows you can easily remove the wiper arm.

Remove plastic cap, remove nut, sing Twist & Shout, pry up wiper arm...

They are stamped into the door frame, you can't remove the arm rest. However, if you're wondering how to get to the INNER mechanism of the door, you have to remove the outer door skin. Instructions are elsewhere.

Something is worn for the clearance to be used up, possibly a motor mount.

The arm rest can be removed from the seat on a 1998 F150 by locating the bolts holding it on. Remove the bolts with the proper tool and life the armrest from the seat carefully.

You must unzip the cover on the bottom of the arm rest and use a "torx" bit to unscrew the armrest!

There is a lock that keeps the wiper from coming out, use a flat screwdriver and unlock it by prying it to the side, but if it has not been removed in a long time it may still be lock in place, I had to cut mine off with a cutting wheel.
