SOURCE: how to a remove the wiper arm

Most windshield wiper arms usually fail due to a loose nut or rusted and worn out parts. Fixing this depends on how the wiper arm attaches to the vehicle. Fixing wiper arm failure is usually as easy as tightening a nut or replacing a worn out or rusted part.

Here is a step by step guide on fixing this issue.

Step1 49869_65x95_aspect.jpg Mark the existing wiper position on the windshield using a crayon. This will help you align the wiper arm correctly when you install a new one. Alternatively you can use the Trucks own markings. At the bottom center of the windshield you will see writing and three small dots. The wiper should rest on top of these dots. Step2 49870_65x95_aspect.jpg Follow the wiper arm down to where it connects with the Truck. You should find a hinged cap at the end. Step3 49871_65x95_aspect.jpg Lift this cap to reveal the nut and screw underneath. Step4 49872_65x95_aspect.jpg Use a wrench (or socket and ratchet) to loosen the nut. Step5 49873_65x95_aspect.jpg Remove the nut completely, leaving the screw stud exposed and the wiper arm free to be removed. Step6 49875_65x95_aspect.jpg Lift the arm straight up. Wiggle the arm and pull upwards at the same time until the arm slides free of the screw. If it seems stuck, push the arm back down and proceed to Step 7. Step7 49876_65x95_aspect.jpg Use a battery cable puller to pry the arm loose. Arrange so the large puller screw cap sits on top of the wiper arm screw. The outside arms have flat fingers that should be fitted underneath the wiper arm. Step8 49877_65x95_aspect.jpg Grasp the handle at the top of the puller and turn clockwise. The puller screw will push down on the wiper arm screw and simultaneously pull up on the wiper arm. A few slow turns should pop the wiper arm free.

SOURCE: replace the rear wiper arm shaft

There is a plastic cover that pops off at the pivot end of the wiper arm. pulling up on this with a hook of some kind from the furthest end should release it. Under it you will find a nut that holds the wiper arm to the shaft. It's quite common for the nut to come loose and the shaft spins without moving the arm. Try tightening this nut (with the ignition on, be sure the wiper motor is off, then turn off ignition and put the wiper arm in the parked position). This is a common problem if you've ever tried to turn on the wiper when it was frozen to the glass.

How do i remove rear wiper blade from nissan versa


The Trico blade replacement, 14", has text and illustration. Better yet, go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R18YBfC4WbU to see a demo of the removal. The blade simply pushes down from the arm, as you'll see, and the replacement snaps back.

Rear wiper arm was broke off at car wash and now i cant find a replacement one anywhere. any ideas?


Hi
That rear wiper arm is a hard to get parts from any replacement store, the only one can supply it is the dealer themselves. ( it happens to me too ).
If you have no access to the dealer, you could make them, by buying a normal wiper arm, cut it off for the size you wanted, heat up to the point where you need to bend it, and find any wiper blade with a clip-on-installation.
Hope that helps you out!

I need instuctions to replace the rear wiper blade on a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee.


Take it to any parts store and they will do it for you for free, there are three types, the rocker type which you have to raise the wiper arm away from the glass then pull the tab up then slide the wiper down and slide the wiper off the wiper arm. but the best thing is have someone show you how to do it for the first time sometimes they can be tough to get off.

The passenger windshield wiper does not work


if you have only one wiper arm moving then your wiper linkage is broken   i get used wiper linkages from the auto recyclers   to remove the old one you have to remove the 2 wiper arms   raise them up and slide the little clip out to hold it upright   either pry or wiggle the arm off  then undo the screws for the grill under the wiper arms while the hood is raised undo the bolt on the wiper motor etc.  replace the part and put everything back together   you may have to try putting the wiper arms on a few times until it doesn't hit the edge of the windshield and retracts down properly   $40 (Canadian) for used parts if you do it yourself  $90 - $130 in new parts  maybe $140 - $200 in parts and labor to have someone else do it

97 nissan sentra windshield wiper linkage arm disconnected


Most likely you will have to replace the wiper linkage from the center pivot to the left or drivers-side wiper pivot. The plastic piece in the linkage gets brittle over time and breaks down. To save a hassle in the future, replace both linkages. It should be under $20.00 for parts.
