Where is the location of acura tl 2004 wiper motor?


The wiper motor is located in the left rear of the engine compartment near the corner by the driver side. Remove the wiper arm assembly (both if necessary) and then remove the plastic cover at the edge of the hood near the windshield the motor is underneath. To remove the wiper arm flip up the small cover where the arm is attached and you will find a (12mm usually) nut. Remove the nut and work the arm off of the post using a rocking motion. Hope this helps.

1 - BEZEL AND GASKET
2 - OUTPUT SHAFT
3 - TAILGATE OUTER PANEL
4 - NUT
5 - NUT COVER

What you will need to do is to remove the small plastic cap on the wiper arm by prying it off with a screw driver. Then remove the nut that holds the arm onto the shaft. Then get yourself a battery cable puller (from auto parts store) and pull the arm off of the shaft..

96 safari rear wiper arm removal


Wiper arms are fitted to a tapered and splined shaft and they can become very tight on the shaft even without the problems of poor maintenance - when servicing a vehicle I always loosen the wiper arm retaining nuts and apply a small amount of chain lube and retighten. Subsequent removal becomes a little easier and the chance of snapping a wiper spindle much reduced.

These days few wiper arms can be removed without using a small gear puller that is sold by tool outlets for the purpose of removing most wiper arms. Recently a colleague needed to manufacture a "special" for a particular car because mine wouldn't fit.

Rear wipers receive no maintenance at all generally and being more exposed to the weather, salt, road dirt, corrosion can be a big factor when removing the arm from the spindle. This is especially so when the rear wiper arm is plastic with a moulded-in ally hub. I have in the past had to resort to carefully cutting and grinding away the arm in order not to risk the spindle or the glass.

I suggest you try a wiper arm puller and a little gentle heat and if that doesn't seem to be working then cutting, grinding or drilling would be the best solution, after protecting the glass with lots of forgiving material...
