Re: 1984 S10 wiper arms
No Problem! Look down on the Bottom of the Wiper Arm, wher it attaches and Swivels. There is a Small tab that comes off of the Upper Part of the Arm that looks like Two Front Teeth Sticking up just a Little. Take a Pair of Pliers and Pull this Tab Up Towards the Top of the Winshield to Release the Lock on the Arm. then take a Pair of Pliers with Tape on them so that you will not Scratch the Arm and Pull while you Wiggle the Arm right at the Swivel Pont and they will Come off. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks!

assure the arm is installed in the proper position. If the arm is being
replaced, transfer the matchmark from the old component to the new one
before installation. This can be done by placing the new arm on top of
the old one and copying the mark.

Most wiper arms are retained by a spring clip. Some are equipped
with a release tab at the center which should be depressed to release
the arm. If no tab is provided, use a small prybar or a wiper arm
removal tool such as J-8966 to depress the spring and release the arm.
Remove the arm from the vehicle.
Some late model vehicles (all 1993 and some earlier
models) are equipped with a wiper arm that utilizes a small release hole
at the base of the wiper arm. If equipped, insert a
in. drift pin into the tool access hole to release the
locking device and allow the arm to be easily pulled from the
transmission. If necessary, use a gentle rocking motion to remove the
Except for late model vehicles equipped with the tool access hole,
align the matchmarks and gently press the blade over the linkage and
snap into position.
For 1993 vehicles (and earlier models equipped with the access
hole on the arm) straighten the arm assembly and insert the pin. Align
the arm with the linkage mark made earlier, then press down on the arm's
head casting until it seats and locks onto the wiper pin. Remove the
The wiper arms have a push in tab at the very bottom at the fitting that is pressed into the wiper linkage below the screen. Use a flat headed screwdriver to pry out the tab. Once out the arm can be pulled right off. Now you can remove the cowling screen
this either has a nut on the base of the arm that needs to be removed or if no nut. then pull the arm away from the glass and there will be a meatal tab at the base of the arm that will slide to the side with this slid to the side the wiper arm is unlocked and will pop right off
had the same problem with mine all you need is a windshild wiper bushing it bout 5 to 10 $ at auto zone there are about 2 or 3 bushing that may need replacing mine was simplest one the one on the motor its easy it justs snaps onthe motor arm and than to the arms of the windshild transmistion
there is a keeper on the inside of the arm. its easier to get to if you remove the whole arm. lift the wiper arm and near the pivot point there is a little flat bar that sticks out along the arm itself. its about a quarter inch long. pull that out alittle and slide the arm off the peg. makes it easier for me. if you cannot get the wiper off still, destroy it. your replacing it anyway and the arm is pretty sturdy.
go to bottom of arm take end cap off loosen bolt / Turn on wipers Check to here the motor if its running if its running turn off and tighten up the bolt wiper arm at bottom then turn the wipers on if you here the motor running if you do not check fuse under dash and in engine compartment / Please rate my response thank you very much
i don't know what you mean by stripped, but iam gessing you mean it won't stay on the windshild when it wipes. have you tride another blade? if not i would try that first. if that dosent work you may have to try another wiper arm. all wipers will do what yours is doing when conditions are just right. you can minamise this problem maybe with a double wiper blade. hope this will help. OLD SCHOOL.
