Use a small screwdriverslide it between the plastic of the wiper blade and the top of the wiper arm. There is a tab that holds the blade in place, you should be able to gently pull the wiper back off the arm.

Chevy s10 windshield wiper- the driver side wiper doesn't work.


that will most likely be the way to get to it . It appears that the arm has fallen of the crank. There is a small clip that holds them on and it may have rusted / broken off.

How do I change wiper blades 2001 Chevy blazer


Open the cap at the end of the windshield wiper arm at the cowl of the Blazer. This will reveal the bolt that secures the wiper arm to the wiper linkage.
Unbolt the wiper arm using a 3/8-inch ratchet and socket. Place the bolt to the side, as you will reuse it later.
Pull the wiper arm up at the blade so that the blade of the wiper is pointing into the air. Then pull at the base of the arm, wiggling it slightly. It's a keyed gear, so it may take a little bit of workunderlined.png?1 to break it free, but with the right amount of wiggling, it will disengage.

    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. 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 remove the windshield wiper arms


    The wiper arms have a push in tab at the very bottom at the fitting that is pressed into the wiper linkage below the screen. Use a flat headed screwdriver to pry out the tab. Once out the arm can be pulled right off. Now you can remove the cowling screen

    The wiper motor on my 1983 Ford Ranger still works but the wipers no longer move. I think there is a failure of the mechanical linkage. Where do I go to find repair parts?


    why do you think the motor still works if the wipers don't move? Can you hear the motor run or can you see a little movement when you turn the switch on?

    What happens when you activate the washers?

    go to a salvage yard that allows you to remove the parts yourself. Then you can see how the motor and linkage assembly comes out.


    don't have 1983 info, but here is 1994:

    No Problem! Look down on the Bottom of the Wiper Arm, wher it attaches and Swivels. There is a Small tab that comes off of the Upper Part of the Arm that looks like Two Front Teeth Sticking up just a Little. Take a Pair of Pliers and Pull this Tab Up Towards the Top of the Winshield to Release the Lock on the Arm. then take a Pair of Pliers with Tape on them so that you will not Scratch the Arm and Pull while you Wiggle the Arm right at the Swivel Pont and they will Come off.
