Wiper Arms



Removal & Installation

NOTE
To prevent damage, do not pry arm from pivot with metal or sharp tool.

Raise the blade end of the arm off the windshield and move the slide latch away from the pivot shaft. This will unlock the wiper arm from the pivot shaft and hold the blade end of the arm off the glass at the same time. The wiper arm can now be pulled off the pivot shaft without the aid of any tools.

To install, position the auxiliary arm over the pivot pin, (on 1989 and later models align the key-way on the pivot shaft) hold it down and push the main arm head over the pivot shaft. Ensure pivot shaft is in position, and that the blade assembly is positioned to the correct dimension. Hold the main arm head onto the pivot shaft while raising the blade end of the wiper arm and push the slide latch into the lock under the pivot shaft. Then, lower the blade to the windshield. If the blade does not touch the windshield, the slide latch is not completely in place.
