1953 Chevy 150 Sedan windshield wiper motor trim clamp thingamajig. thank you.
Best way is to make a tool. Get a piece of pipe the same size as the retaining nut (the circle with slots) grind or saw through from 2 sides leaving tabs to fit the slots. Nice clean cuts and snug fit will do it. You will have the tool to reinstall and not mess up the nut.
I have used a very small screwdriver and a hammer and "gently" tap in one of the slots to unscrew. Worked for me.
thank you. I believe I have a tool I can use for it now. cheers!
Used a bicycle spanner with dimples on it to get a friends out.
for sure. I did that, it works great.
The proper name for the thiggamujigg is a " BURR " or so G.M. named it in the Service Manual
The tool is called a windshield wiper escutcheon bezel nut wrench. You can buy one, but as others have said, it's pretty easy to make one out of a piece of tubing.
They look like this:
I make them out of the right diameter socket wrench, on a grinder.
I've used a set of needle nose pliers just have to be careful.
90° ring nose pliers may work, also.
Same here, I have also use a set of small 45* needle nose pliers.
Separate names with a comma.
