How to remove rear wiper arm

They're held on typically in one of 2 ways. One type has a tapered shaft and a nut that holds the arm down. There may be a cap over the nut that would need to be removed first.The other type, more typical for American cars, has a straight, splined shaft. To remove these, you would lift the wiper arm, then there is a small tab on the side of the arm that you pry sideways away from the arm that will hold the spring tension when you let the arm back down, then you can wiggle the arm straight up and off the shaft.

I cannot give you an item #, but if you take the whole car to a auto parts place they will take off your old one and put the new one on for you.

Im having problems with my 05 maxx..... electrical???

I would get all the electrical schematics and then look for problems like blown fuses affecting the areas you are describing. Then systematically troubleshoot the wiring. Simple.
Now, I am looking for the mentioned schematics on the web. I just bought (2010-01-28) a 2005 Malibu Maxx, and can't wait to have it ready for pickup in 2 days...

The wiper arm connection at the motor shaft is a soft metal and known to strip out and slip. No problem to replace. Get a new wiper arm before beginning the procedure. Remove the rubber cover at the pivot and remove the nut securing the wiper arm. Pull the stripped wiper arm off and place the new one on in a horizontal and original position. Put the securing nut on and tighten it enough that it won't strip again, replace the rubber cover and done. See, NOOOOOOO problem.
