Try moving the arm one spline down so it parks off the glass then it should cross the gap between the panel and glass.

    Lift up the plastic cover where the wiper arm attaches to the spindle, there is a nut underneth the cover, undo this and lift up the arm and wiggle it loose (at this point if it is too tight you have to borrow or but an extractor) when loose you will see the spindle has little grooves in it called splines, move it round just one spline and tighten it up.

How do I remove rear door panel on 2005 Galant

not sure about yours but most cars they have pop clips. you will have a couple screws hiding under some plastic clips. then if its a manual window the crank would need to be removed they have a clip on the back side. a screwdriver can pop the clip off I use a flat piece of metal to get it off. and then its a matter of prying or sliding in some cases. to get the panel to move.some lift up. others just pull towards up. you wont know till you pry on the panel to see where its stuck and either find the screws or another clip.

Remove rear wiper arm 1995 jeep cherokee

on some of these models, there is a plastic piece made into the wiper arm, remove the plastic piece, and arm should be able to be brought backwards, if no plastic piece is there, then you press onto a small plastic clip that is on the wiper arm, and push wiper blade downward, this should release the wiper blade.

Rear window washer does not spray fluid. When I push the rear window washer button, the front washer/wipers turn on. The rear wipers work normally.

I have the same problem with my 2000 chevy blazer as skornec had posted. I kinda already figured the hose or spray nozzle was plugged. But the problem with checking those items is that I don't know where the hose is located to the back wiper. And the only thing that could be I see that could be the spray nozzle doesn't even have holes that washer fluid could spray from. So basically I just would LOVE if someone could please inform this lame brain of where to find the spray nozzle on the rear window and where in the interior of my blazer does the washer hose run.

Wiper Arm Change gone

hi don,t panic all the wiper arms i have come across are metal and have a plastic bush in the ends that are greased for ease of rotating the problem you have is which end haspoped off it could be the centre bush or it could be the passenger side you will need to strip covering away to see and to get at the arm to get it back on they usually press back on sometimes are a little awkward but can use mole grips or plyers to clip it back together the secret is no to get flustered with it best of luck yates210456

Door lock stuck

The window handle is attached w/ a clip on the back, it's shaped like a horse shoe. There are 2 ways to remove it, u can buy a special tool at the auto parts store ( I don't think they cost much), the tool slides behind the handle and pushes the clip off. I've taken them off w/out the tool. One way is to get a sturdy piece of wire (14 gauge electrical house wire, remove and strip insulation off one of the wires, bend it into a small hook) u should be able to hook onto the clip and pull it off. U have to figure out w/ a flashlight and mirror, which way the clip is positioned so u know where to hook it. Another possibility is to use 2 small flat screw drivers to try and push the clip off, but be careful u don't damage the interior using that method. Let me know how u do countrycurt0
