Honda Accord/Prelude 1984-1995 Repair Guide

Blade and Arm



See Figures 1 and 2

  1. To remove the wiper blades (front or rear), lift up on the spring release tab on the wiper blade-to-wiper arm connector.
  3. Pull the blade assembly off the wiper arm.
  5. To replace a wiper arm, unscrew the acorn nut which secures it to the pivot and carefully pull the arm upward and off the pivot. Install the arm by reversing this procedure. Make certain the wiper arm is reinstalled in the correct position; if not correctly aligned, the blade will slap the bodywork at the top or bottom of its stroke.

If one wiper arm does not move when turned on or only moves a little bit, check the retaining nut at the bottom of the arm. The extra effort of moving snow or wet leaves off the glass can cause the nut to come loose; the pivot will then move without moving the arm.
