My 1990 Suburban needs new wipers, I bought the blades, however I dont know how to remove the old ones because it seems to have a different set up. you cant find just blades anymore it comes with the...


The 1990 Chevrolet Suburban has the most common hook-end wiper arms. Locate and press the tab or button where the wiper blade is inserted into the hook of the wiper arm and pull wiper blade out of hook. You may have to rotate and flex the blade to make enough clearance for the hook to pass through.

I can get the old wiper blades off my 2008 avalon but don't know how to put on new ones. do you have to remove something from old blade?


Hello,
  1. After you have removed the old wiper blade make sure to remove any adapter left behind on the actual wiper arm as the new blade should come with a multi use adapter.
  2. It should just be a bare metal rounded hook bar now.
  3. Now if there is not adapter on the new wiper blade then put the one provided on. Often times the wiper blade comes with this adapter already on the wiper blade.
  4. Pull the wiper arm out a bit and set the new blade under the open section of the wiper arm.
  5. That adapter will have a little play to it.
  6. Push it up a bit so it fits in the slot on the wiper arm and pull up on the wiper blade and the blade should "click" into place.
Do the same for the other side and your good to go. I also recommend Raine X for your windshield. My experience as a mechanic and a storm chaser has proven Rain X to be invaluable in severe weather.
Regards, Tony

How to change the wiper blade on a Chevy Traverse?


the instructions are in the owners manual and on the back of the package for the new blades. if you can not understand those instructions, why would reading them printed here make a difference? what you need to do is go to autozone or advance and buy the blades from them, their sales guys will come outside and install them for you. so where ever you got the set you have, take them back and go to one of the parts stores aforementioned.

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

5227e24.jpg

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 do you change the wipers? It looks like a nut on top, but it's not. I have new wipers to put on, but can't figure out how to get the old ones off, and I don't want to break them.


you should not need to remove the nut best thing is go to where you bought the blades or any auto parts store and they will install them on for free, most of the time they snap in place and slide on to the wiper arm.

How install wiper blades on 96 chevy corsica. i can't get the old ones off. so more preciesly, how do you get the old ones off?


you should have "pin" type wiper arms on it. that means there are short, maybe 3/16 inch diameter pins that the wiper blades mount and pivot on. get a screw driver and where the pin goes through the wiper blade there will be a little plastic tab or lever that needs to be depressed and held down while you slide the wiper off of the pin on the wiper arm. pivoting back and forth with the wiper will help in removing it.

How to get the old wiper blade assembly off 87 S10 Blazer


With the pin style blades, if you look into the top of the blade at the point were the pin goes through, you will see what looks like a spring or a coil on its side. Use a small screwdriver and push down on that coil at the same time that you try to push the wiper off the pin. I have changed more of these than you can think of, and they are never easy, you have to get things in just the right possition before it will come all the way off. Once you do one the other will come off easier. One word of caution,don't let the wiper arm slip out of your hand and smack the windsheild, it can break it.

How to Replace Wiper Blades Guide (Typical):
Potential tools needed to replace wiper blades:
  • Flat blade screwdriver (small)
  • Small nosed pliers
  • Latex or vinyl gloves
  • Safety goggles
To replace wiper blades theactual action of replacing the blade is no big deal, it's the locationof the blade down below the hood that can make it difficult though.Sometimes it helps to open the hood to gain access to the wiper blades.Other times it is helpful if the wiper blade is somewhere in the motionline of wiper action. The trick is to get the wiper to stop somewherein the wiper arc. Turn the wipers to the on position and allow thewipers to start, and then shut the key off when the wiper has arrivedin a desirable position on the windshield. To replace your wiper bladesplease follow the step by step instruction below. Also, watch the How to replace wiper blades video below to gain additional information. The method in which the wiper blades are attached will vary slightly.
  • Step 1: With the hood closed, turn the wiperson, when the wipers are in the middle of their arc turn the key to theoff position. (Note: if this can't be done because of wiper conditionand you want to avoid scratching the windshield please open your hoodto gain access)
  • Step 2: Locate the mounting clips at the top pivot on the wiper blade
  • Step 3: Release the clip and remove the wiper arm
  • Step 4: Match the size of the old blade against the new blade to ensure proper fit and operation
  • Step 5: Reinstall the new wiper blade and recheck wiper operation

Common Problems:
  • Make sure the wiper blades are the same size as the original blades.
  • When replacing wiper blades not getting the blade onthe mounting pin completely allowing the wiper arm to become dislodgedand possibly causing damage to the windshield.
  • Using wiper blades after the blade has failed permanently damaging the windshield by craving scratches in the wiper arc.
  • Wiper blade can create a chattering noise when theblade is not properly balanced allowing the blade to "flop" back andforth as the wiper direction changes.

I hope help you with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.

Rear wiper blade


If you still have your '08 Cruiser, I just changed mine (I'm also a Mom)...You have to pop off the plastic cap on the base of the wiper where it attaches to the window, then with a small wrench, take off the hex nut. Work the wiper arm off the spindle, then replace like the front wipers...push old wiper hook up, pull thru, and replace blades per instructions in the blade package...Pat
