    Although the Owners Handbook suggests it's merely a matter of sliding the locking piece towards the end of the stem of the wiper, it just won't move. They obviously want you to go to an Audi garage and pay £60 to have it done for you. i object to that.

The problem with this wiper blade set up is the slides get jammed up w/ crude.  You should lubricate the slides and they should slide off.  Then carfully lift the arm and remove the blade.  Warning you should never leave the arm in the upright position.  Windshields get cracked this way.  Also note the pivit points the blades attach too.  These will normally sieze up and cause clearing issues even with new blades.  Lubricate these pivit points and use a pair of channel locks to move it back and forth until it will go 360 degrees with your fingers.  Install is in reverse order of removal.

Remove rear wiper arm 1995 jeep cherokee


on some of these models, there is a plastic piece made into the wiper arm, remove the plastic piece, and arm should be able to be brought backwards, if no plastic piece is there, then you press onto a small plastic clip that is on the wiper arm, and push wiper blade downward, this should release the wiper blade.

I need to have 'step-by-step' instructions for replacing the driver side windshield wiper arm on my 2000 Ford Explorer. Can you help me with this?


  • Turn your wipers off, using the stalk on the left side of your steering column. Turn your ignition off and remove the key.

  • 2

    Pull the wiper blade up to lift it to the service position. Pull the front part of the blade down to position it at an angle.

  • 3

    Pull back the lock pin on the center part of the wiper blade (where it connects to the wiper arm). This unlocks the blade from the wiper arm.

  • 4

    Grasp the blade on each side and pull it down (away from the extended wiper arm) to release it from the "U" clip.

  • 5

    Repeat the process for the other wiper blade, if desired. Removing the driver's side and passenger's side wiper blade is the same.

  • 6

    Install the new wiper blade. Open the lock pin on the new blade, and then insert it into the wiper arm "U" clip. Close the lock pin and lower the wiper blade to its normal position.

    I have audi 14 wiper blades are not working


    It is possible that the linkage is jammed. Try turning the wipers on and gently pull the wiper arm by hand to see if it will move. It it starts to move you've found the problem.

    If it doesn't move at all and the fuses are ok it is likely the wiper motor that has failed.
