I have a new set of wiper spindles. the old ones were an absolute mess of worn rusted metal. does someone know of an easy way of removing the connecting arm from the actual spindles it is like a ball joint of sorts and no amount of reasonable force even touches it, is there a way or is it a case on brute force. thanks

Lubricate the balls before useing the thin pliars method. Any double sided taper wedge and GENTLE applied force.

Warmth does work but may loosen the ball from its plate houseing.

Twist with upward leverage.
