On most cars, the windshield wiper arm is attached to the car by way of a gear. By grabbing the wiper arm at the base you can pull the entire arm off. Reposition the arm so that it is in the proper position in the wiper off position and tap back into the fixed position

Why do front wipers on1999 Ford Windstar stick when window is dry work fine when window is wet ?

wiper blades are miniature squeegees and need water to lubricate the surface so that the dry rubber doesn't stick to the glass and so jump. The problem is made worse if the blades are old and hard.

How to maintain your rear wiper blade on a Honda Jazz/fit

When trying to purchase rear wiper blade rubber replacement i could not find a listing for it,i also noticed that the replacement blades for the front needed only a couple more inches of length for the left hand side cutoff to be long enough to do the rear as well ,you would think the manufacturers could have given you that extra as a bonus. Anyway when replacing front wiper blades,as you should at least once a year,rotate the shorter blade to the rear wiper it is the same size, just pull the end of the rubber insert slightly bending it away from the frame and it will slide out,better than having a rubber that is perished hard,how many cars do you see with rear blades that are useless, maybe other makes might also benefit from this.

Replace rear wiper assembly

The wiper arm has a cover on the left end that pops up after gently spreading the two bottom sides apart. That allows the arm to swing out for cleaning the window or replacing the blade.
The wiper blade assembly attaches to the end of the arm . It is pressed in and will pop out with a little force rotating the left side away from the arm. It pops back in with a little push. The arm remains attached to the rotating shaft assembly.
I believe you can then replace just the rubber blade and not the whole blade assembly, if that is your fancy.

How to replace window blades?

It depends on which style of wiper arm you have. Most auto parts stores will install new wiper blades free - just ask them when you go in to buy.Don't buy the cheapest blades - you get what you pay for! I personally buy Bosch blades - being winter, I get the winter blades. Wiper blades are meant to last only 3 months and the life will be greatly shortened if you have tree sap or chemicals on the glass. Scrape the glass with a razor blade then clean with an alcohol based window cleaner and make sure you wipe the new blades with the alcohol wipe they come with, as most all blades have a chemical coating to delay rubber decay during shipping and pre - sale storage and this coating can cause streaking on your window. You may want to clean your existing blades with alcohol if they wipe good but streak or cause hazing on the windshield. Hope this helps and please rate my solution!!

2006 Ford Escape rear window wiper has only a 10'' wiper blade

Check the clearance of the wiper blade from the edge of the glass at the top of it's sweep. If you have over an extra inch of glass, you can go with a 2 inch longer blade (one inch above the pivot point and one inch below). If you have over 2 inches, go with a 4 inch longer, etc...

Rear Window was broken have a new one, but how do I replace it?

On the interior, there is a rubber lip surrounding the window. This rubber lip holds the glass in place. Here is how to remove without breaking stuff: Collect about 6 sticks (more is better) that are flat and preferabley made of something a little bendable. The ones I use are plastic and measure 8 inches by 1/4 inch by 1 inch and taper down to a blunt, rounded blade at the end.
From the interior, pull back the rubber lip where it meets the cab... not the glass. Where the lip meets the cab, you jam one of the sticks in place so it holds the rubber lip away from the cab of the truck (towards the glass). Start near a corner. About 4 inches away, do this again. Keep doing this until you have all the sticks in place. I found that doing this around one end of the glass (driver or passenger side) allows me to work that end out and the rest will come out with minimal hassle.
To install:
Place window on stand and wrap rubber gasket around window.
Run a string that is about an 1/8 or 3/16 diameter into the groove that grabs the pinchweld of the cab. The string should be long enough to overlap. Overlap by at least a couple of inches. Tape excess string to interior of window.
Have help to jam the bottom of window INTO the cab opening and try to center as best you can.
While applying LIGHT pressure to outside of window, pull one end of string. What you are watching for is that the rubber lip at least catches the cab pinchweld. If you miss this, you will have to start over. (Sometimes you can save it if you have a hook tool handy. A hook tool is essentially a screwdriver bent sharply at a 90 degree angle.)
If you do it right, as you pull the string, it will pull the rubber lip toward the interior of the truck and it will catch the pinchweld of the window opening. A little messaging and slapping of the window will fully seat the glass.
You are done.
