NOTE
This procedure also applies to rear wiper arms on the Diamante Wagon and Mirage Hatchbacks.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2.  
  3. Remove the windshield wiper arms by removing the cap, unscrewing the cap nuts then lifting the arms from the linkage posts.
  4.  

To install:

  1. Install the wiper blade and arm assemblies. Tighten the retaining nuts to 7-12 ft. lbs. (10-16 Nm).
  2.  
  3. Note that the driver's side wiper arm should be marked D or Dr and the passenger's side wiper arm should be marked A or As . The identification marks should be located at the base of the arm, near the pivot. Install the arms so the blades are 1 inch from the garnish molding when parked.
  4.  
  5. Connect the negative battery cable and check the wiper system for proper operation.
