Headlight Wiper Blades



See Figure 1

The small blades for the headlight wipers found on the 700 Series are removed in the same fashion as the windshield wiper blades. Pull the wiper away from the light, lift the spindle cover, unfasten the shaft nut, then remove the blade and arm. It is necessary to disconnect the washer tube from the blade assembly when removing the arm.

During installation, place the wiper blade below the park stop on the light. Tighten the shaft nut and reposition the blade above the stop. The blade should rest firmly on the stop. Don't forget to reattach the washer line.
