Rear wiper removal and debadging

Is removing rear wiper an easy job?
Also will be debadging, many different methods, I'm thinking the tooth floss method seems as it's virtually impossible to demage paint.

Hot water helps muchly. Just don't do what I did and attempt to use a kitchen scouring pad to take the glue off!

The rear wiper is 3x13mm bolts under the boot lid. You can then use a grommet to bung up the hole. The wiper itself is 1x10mm bolt under the little cap (I think it's 10mm).

I went a little further and welded a little plate behind and filled over it and painted, quite easy to do yourself actually

Re: Rear wiper removal and debadging

Ok thanks lads! One thing though, the debadging video is for a suby wrx, obviously my seicento is a lot faster so will it make any difference to the badges?;-)
Once the -60 springs are on (it's an SX, dont panic!) It will be time for some tidying up. Il make a thread i think.

The only thing that ends up low is your bank balance if you take J's advice.

Re: Rear wiper removal and debadging

to get your badges off, fill your kettle to max, boil it, go to your car and slowly pour water all over the badge. Boiling water is hot enough to really soften the glue, they will just come off easy, i keep pouring while pulling badge gently but careful not to scald your fingers.

Might need something to clean any sticky residue off after.

Re: Rear wiper removal and debadging

dont use boilng water , you could end up damaging the paint , if you use a hair dryer/ hot air gun you can heat up the panel around it so you dont damage the paint (Y)

Re: Rear wiper removal and debadging

really...? i done this hundreds of times and never ever had an issue, infact rescued my uncle the other day who was doing it with a heatgun and had damaged his paint as they are way way hotter than hot water from a kettle. Yes it will soften the paint slightly but any heat will. It will only be about 90 degrees by time you get outside with it and paint clearly gets hotter than that in alot of countries just sitting it the sun and their paint doesn't melt (well maybe after a long long time they do lol)

Also how i remove any stickers/graphics made of SAV off paint or glass. Let it cool down, clean and polish, job done.

Re: Rear wiper removal and debadging

Hot water or hair dryer (I keep one specially -- way better for heat shrink than anything else) is the safest option.

I think the rivets are holding the motor together. It should have bolts to undo, after you have removed the arm outside.

Re: Rear wiper removal and debadging



from memory (been a long time) 10mm nut on the wiper arm, take arm off. Then inside 3x 10mm bolts holding the whole assembly to the bootlid.
