How do I remove the camber adjusting pins in my 2002 Toyota Tundras sr5 v8 I forces lower control arms

First all pressure has to be off them. Springs and such. If they won't come out, lube them and let them set. Then try to rotate them to see if they release from the bushings. If the y don't, you may have to cut them out. And get new ones. Cut them on the inside of the frame. Sawzall and extra blades.

How do you replace the rear wiper on a 2009 Scion XD?

You can make use of following procedure to replace rear wiper in ur scion xd.
Pull the rear wiper arm away from the rear window in order to access the wiper blade.

  • Locate the hinge where the blade mechanism meets the wiper arm and squeeze the plastic tabs on the blade in order to release it from its locked position on the arm. In some cases, instead of tabs, there is a small button that must be pressed to release the wiper from the arm.
  • Detach the blade from the arm and slide the old blade out. Insert the new blade into the wiper arm and lock the blade in place.
  • Return the wiper arm to its set position. Before driving, wet the window and test the wiper to make sure it is operating properly.

    How do I re-attach my wiper arms?

    Start off by putting a cardboard box over the windshield and under the wiper arm to avoid breaking or scratching the windshield.You need to turn on the wiper switch and then turn on the key. When your wiper arm is pointing to the top of the windshield turn off the key to keep it there. Now, depending on the type of wiper arm you have ( bayonet, shepherd hook, L pin or straight arm ) depends on how to remove old arm. Shepherd hook is the most common and has a lock on the blade that needs to be pressed in to release the blade from the arm. Now slide the blade toward the windshield, off of the cradle for the arm. Swivel the cradle so you can slip the blade off from the inside of the arm and reverse procedure to install. The Bayonet, L pin and straight arm styles usually require a small flat blade screwdriver pushed between the body of the blade and the arm, then twist to release blade. Some blades also have a lock that will need to be pressed to release blade from arm, then twist screwdriver to remove. Hope this helps!!

    I have a 92 chevy S10 truck, how do you remove the wiper blades and arms?

    GM S10/S15/Sonoma Pick-Ups 1982-1993 Repair Manual Blade and Arm - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
    (see Figures 1, 2 and 3)
    1. Matchmark the base of the wiper arm to the linkage. This will assure the arm is installed in the proper position. If the arm is being replaced, transfer the matchmark from the old component to the new one before installation. This can be done by placing the new arm on top of the old one and copying the mark.

    Fig. 1: Removing the wiper arm using J-8966


    Fig. 2: If no wiper arm tool is available, use a small prytool to depress the spring


    Fig. 3: With the spring released, pull the wiper arm from the linkage
    1. Most wiper arms are retained by a spring clip. Some are equipped with a release tab at the center which should be depressed to release the arm. If no tab is provided, use a small prybar or a wiper arm removal tool such as J-8966 to depress the spring and release the arm. Remove the arm from the vehicle.
    2. Some late model vehicles (all 1993 and some earlier models) are equipped with a wiper arm that utilizes a small release hole at the base of the wiper arm. If equipped, insert a 1 / 8 in. drift pin into the tool access hole to release the locking device and allow the arm to be easily pulled from the transmission. If necessary, use a gentle rocking motion to remove the arm.
    To install:
    1. Except for late model vehicles equipped with the tool access hole, align the matchmarks and gently press the blade over the linkage and snap into position.
    2. For 1993 vehicles (and earlier models equipped with the access hole on the arm) straighten the arm assembly and insert the pin. Align the arm with the linkage mark made earlier, then press down on the arm's head casting until it seats and locks onto the wiper pin. Remove the drift pin.
    3. Operate the wipers and verify proper alignment.

    Hope helps (remember rated this).

    How to change rear wiper motor?

    Take the metal Wiper Arm up off the window.
    These are held-on by a "U" clip on the Blade which is snapped into the "U" shape of the metal Arm.
    On the Plastic "U" clip is a Release Tab.
    Press the Release Tab while pulling the Wiper Blade (not arm) out of the "U" of the Arm.
    Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at!
    FYI: Sometime the Arm and/or Blade gets bent or warped, causing it not to make full contact with the window. People change their Blade, only to find out their Arm was warped. Inspect this and adjust the Arm (gently) if this is the case.

    How do you remove windshield wipers on a 1997 mercury grand marquis?

    If your'e just removing the wiper blade, check for a "release lever" where the wiper attaches to the arm, push (or pull) the lever and pull down on the blade at the same time. Do the opposite to install, except you do not have to push the release lever.
    If you are removing the whole arm, there is a special tool that you slide under the arm that releases it from the 'gear'.

    1993 jeep cherokee country series--replace windshield wipers

    Are trying to remove the blade or the arms?

    The arms are released by holding the wiper blade fully extended away from the winshield and wiggle the arms off.

    The blades are removed by a little tab where the blade hooks to the arm,using a small screwdriver push down on tab,and slide blade off arm but do not let arm slap windshield as it could crack it,I have seen people pull and the blades suddenly come off and the arm slaps down,yor can put a towel or cloth down where the arm sits against the windshield to prevent the possibilty of the arm slapping down.
