I have done this twice and it gets bent again especially when it snows hard and it has build up of ice and snow. I have fixed once to where it catches it. then recently it snowed and I thought I got all the snow off but it now is in the upward position. Basically I am asking is there a way I can take the whole thing off to bend the tab correctly? it is kind of difficult to bend the tab in such a small space. I really do not want to go to an auto repair shop to fix it when I can just find another way to fix it myself and save hundreds. The wiper motor works just fine. Any suggestions will help me. Thanks

Search youtube. Clean snow/ice from windshield before using wipers and turning wipers off and let them park 'before' turning engine off will help prevent this from happening again!! When snow/ice is imminent, lift wiper arms to the upright position before hand,, until windshield is cleared!! Eventually bending the tab is no longer an option over parts replacement!

No, but cant just keep bending the tab. Try to fix it best you can.
