REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figures 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10
- Disconnect the negative battery cable.
- Remove the wiper arms from the linkage so the cowl may be removed.
- Remove the cowl vent grille and screen. On early model vehicles, the windshield washer hose may be connected to a hard plastic fitting located under the cowl grille. If the hose connection is very tight it may make removing the cowl grille difficult. Take your time if difficulty is encountered. If possible, reach underneath the grille to disconnect the hose from the fitting.
- Loosen but DO NOT remove the nuts which hold the drive link to the motor crank arm. Detach the drive link from the crank arm.
- Disengage the wiring from the wiper motor.
- Remove the wiper motor-to-cowl screws. Carefully rotate the motor and guide the drive link from the hole in the cowl, then remove the motor from the vehicle.
- Guide the motor drive link through the hole in the cowl, then install the motor and secure using the retainers.
- Position the drive link socket onto the crank arm ball of the wiper motor assembly. Evenly tighten the socket nuts to secure the connection.
- Engage the wiring to the wiper motor.
- Install the cowl vent grille and screen. On vehicles equipped with a plastic fitting attached to the cowl grille, the washer hose should be connected as the grille is positioned. Make sure the hose is not pinched or damaged as the grille is fastened.
- Install the wiper arm and blade assemblies to the transmission linkage.
- Connect the negative battery cable and verify proper operation.
