Wiper arm bolts?

Just a quick check - how tight should the nuts be on the bolts that hold the front wiper arms on?

Is there a torque setting? Or do you just keep tightening until it stops? :)

Cheers,

Apply a little copper grease to the shaft to stop the arm seizing on the splines and just tip it up tight. Don't need to hang off it or anything to tighten it lol

Cheers Carl - much appreciated. My OEM wiper arm (passenger side) was an absolute b**ch to detach. Just wondered if they needed that much tightening to put back on? I doubted it - but thought it was worth asking anyway. :)

Yeah there is a special tool to remove them. Everyone I have done has had the passenger side seized. No just nip it up snug
