Hi.

It's pretty easy, you do not need to know the position, the wiper motor always return to it's origin, just activate the wiper motor by briefly using the washer fluid switch for instance, let it finish it's movement. Next, you want to place the wiper arm with the longest blade on the driver side. Now for the height, most car's wiper sit from 0.5 to 1 inch above the base of the windshield so that should be what you're aiming for, if the wiper arms pinion has splines, try to pick the one closest to the windshield but not too close of course and repeat the same steps for the passenger side. Now you should check the wiper arm operation for collision, incorrect height or travel distance and adjust the wiper arm position accordingly. By the way, if you're lucky your windshield may have mark on the base of the tinting of the windshield to indicate the height of the wiper blade

SOURCE: Windshield Wiper Arm

Pull up on the wiper arm, you will see a tiny little blade on the side of the wiper arm where it goes over the post, take a little screwdriver and pry that out board, this will release the arm from the post, it will be tight, wiggle the arm and pull straight out away from the post.

According to AllData, you don't have to remove the motor to install a new switch. Subsequently, AllData doesn't give direction on wiper arm or motor removal. Here are the only diagrams they give for switch replacement.

SOURCE: Windshield wiper arm disconnected

My dad helped me solve this problem on my truck...

They simply pry off. He put down a towel to protect the cowl grill, took a hammer (using the split end) and pried them right off.

There was no mechanism holding them on, when we were done working under the grill, we used the same towel, but the other side of the hammer to stick 'em back on.

SOURCE: Windshield wipers will not move. Arms from motor

Hello

The windshield wiper linkage comes as an assembly. The assembly comes with the two rotating splines that the wiper arms attach to. you must remove wiper arms. Remove cowl trim and remove bolts that hold the pivot points to the body. The new linkage that snaps to the wiper motor should come with a new retaining clip. You have to fish the linkage assembly through the access holes in the body by un bolting the wiper motor.

How to remove the wiper arm from the shaft so I can remove the cslotted cowl to replace the wiper bushings.


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
(see Figures 1 and 2)

To remove the arm from the pivot, lift the arm to permit the latch to be pulled out to the holding position and remove the arm from the pivot with a rocking motion.

Fig. 1: Mount the wiper blade/arm as shown-Dakota models

zjlimited_141.jpg

Fig. 2: Mount the wiper blade/arm as shown-1994-96 Pick-ups



When installing the arms, the at-rest position of the blades should be determined before pushing the arm onto the pivot. For Dakota trucks, the tip of the driver's side blade should be 0.51-2.63 in. (13-67mm) above the cowl panel and the passenger's side blade should be 0.94-3.06 in. (24-78mm) above the cowl panel. For 1989-93 Pick-ups and Ramchargers, the driver's side blade should be 1.84 in. (47mm) above the windshield weatherstripping at the heel of the blade; the passenger's side blade should be 2.24 in. (57mm) above the weatherstripping. For 1994-96 Pick-ups, the wiper motor must be in the PARK position and the wiper blade should be about 0.85 in. (22mm) from the upper edge of the black-out areas at the base of the windshield.


Hope this helps to solve it.
