Care to come and try it on my Focus? :-)
I've always had success doing exactly what you say in the past, but this
bugger's not going to come off. It's positioned slightly too high, but
I'm living with it.
I bought a purpose-made wiper arm extractor; it bent. I used a little
three-legged puller, but if I tightened it any more, it would have
broken. I left it on all night in the hope that the wiper fairies would
help, but no luck.
The only option would be to hacksaw a lump off it I reckon, and as it's
not actually broken, I've given up.
I have not come across one that would not respond before, but there is
always an exception etc. In your case I would drill a small hole parallel
to the centre line of the spindle or parallell to the taper (whichever
seemed easy) Which should relieve some of the squeeze and try again, or
heat it up by gripping it with red hot mole grips.
