REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figures 1, 2 and 3
When removing the wiper arm from the pivot shaft, do not pry the wiper arm with a metal or sharp tool. Otherwise, paint or glass damage may be the result.
- From inside the vehicle, turn the windshield wiper switch to the LOW position and allow the wipers to operate through three or four cycles, then turn the switch OFF . This will ensure that the wipers are in the Park position.
- While holding the wiper arm, push down slightly on the wiper arm head, then swing the outer end of the arm up and away from the windshield glass to its highest position.
- With the wiper arm pointing upward, use your fingers to grasp the slide latch tab and pull the latch out from underneath the wiper arm head.
- Remove the wiper arm from the pivot shaft by lifting it straight up and off of the shaft.
Prior to installation, ensure that the wiper motor is in the Park position.
- Position the windshield wiper so that the arm is parallel with the top edge of the cowl vent screen, then, with the slide latch tab in the unlatched position, slide the arm head over the pivot shaft and depress it until it is fully seated on the shaft.
- While depressing the wiper arm head, lift the outer end of the arm until the slide latch tab can be fully locked under the arm and pivot shaft.
- Gently lower the outer end of the wiper arm until it rests against the glass. Ensure that the wiper arm and blade is positioned as indicated in the accompanying illustration. If it is not, remove the wiper arm and reposition it.
- Turn the wiper switch ON to check the wiper system operation. The wiper arms or blades should not contact any of the metal windshield trim or body work.
