  6.  
    1. Pre-1973, replace the entire wiper blade as an assembly. Simply snap the replacement into place on the arm.
    2.  
    3. 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.

  7. 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.
