Forcing them apart usually distorts them and makes them unusable.
Hey man btw still going on the duct tape. Have easy access to that area though w/ only one cover on the wiper b/c the other wiper nut is covered by the cowl. I've only had to do that one other time. I will eventually buy a used linkage but I recently wanted to do the lunchbox and stealth CAI lol. Starting to really like this car
