Do you want to remove the whole arm or just the wiper p
blade for replacement.
if the whole arm, the at the base of the arm, flip up the plastic base, you will see a nut underneath it. Remove the not, lift the arm an inch off the glass and gently rock the arm till it comes free.
IF YOU TALKING ABOUT REAR WIPER MOTOR REMOVAL YOU HAVE TO REMOVE PULL THE REAR WIPER ARM COVER BACK TO ACCESS THE WIPER ARM RETAINING NUT.DETACH THE NUT AND PULL WIPER ARM STRAIGHT OFF THE SHAFT TO REMOVE IT.
remove the cover at the bootom of wiper arm,there you will see a nut that holds the arm, remove that nut. grab arm and wigle and pull up on it until it comes off, then install new arm in the same position.
The wiper arm connection at the motor shaft is a soft metal and known to strip out and slip. No problem to replace. Get a new wiper arm before beginning the procedure. Remove the rubber cover at the pivot and remove the nut securing the wiper arm. Pull the stripped wiper arm off and place the new one on in a horizontal and original position. Put the securing nut on and tighten it enough that it won't strip again, replace the rubber cover and done. See, NOOOOOOO problem.
You are probably correct in thinking its the wiper motor. You can do this but you will need to remove all the interior trim from the rear hatch first. Get a trim clip removal tool at a parts store...it will work much better than just a flat blade screwdriver. You'll have to remove the trim panels starting in order from the top of the door, then the left rear window side trim, then right rear window side trim, then the grab handle, and finally the main rear hatch trim panel. Once inside, removing and replacing the rear wiper motor is easy. You'll start by lifting the cover on the wiper arm retention nut. Remove this nut to get the wiper arm off, then remove the nut under neath which is the motor shaft mounting nut. Now, back inside to remove the other 3 motor mounting bolts. Don't forget to disconnect the connector for the motor wires. Reverse steps to replace.
remove the cover cap that is by the base of the wiper arm. you can do this by just pulling off with your fingers. The wiper arm is attached with a 10mm nut. remove th nut and the wiper arm will slip off. When re-assembling, be certain to wipe all parts with a long lasting lubricant, like WD40.
