REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
Fig. Fig. 1 When removing the wiper arm, lift the cap on the end of the arm
Fig. Fig. 2 Remove the nut retaining the arm to the shaft
Fig. Fig. 3 Pulling straight up, lift the arm off the shaft
To remove the wiper blades, lift up on the spring release tab on the wiper blade-to-arm connector.
Pull the blade assembly off the wiper arm.
There are two types of replacements for Toyotas:
Pre-1973, replace the entire wiper blade as an assembly. Simply snap the replacement into place on the arm.
Post-1973, press the old blade insert down, away from the blade assembly to free it from the retaining clips on the blade ends. Slide the insert out of the blade carrier, slide the new insert in and bend the insert upwards slightly to engage the retaining clips.
To replace a wiper arm, unscrew the acorn nut which secures it to the pivot and carefully pull the arm upwards and off of the pivot. Installation is the reverse of removal.
