1. Remove the cap by inserting a flathead screwdriver on the side of the wiper arm to pop it off
2. Remove the nut holding the arm to the motor shaft
3. Now for the hard part, put the flathead screwdriver between the wiper arm and the base of the motor shaft. You should be able to wedge it in there so that you can put slight pressure on the bottom of the wiper arm and the base of the motor. Now wiggle the wiper arm and pull up while you turn the flathead screwdriver to help pop it off. Just keep wiggling and turning the screwdriver to pop the arm off.
4. Once the arm is off it should be obvious why it was so hard to get it off. There are threads on the motor shaft that tap wiper arm when you crank the nut down on the arm. That's why it doesn't just fall off when you take the nut off.
5.. Put the nut on tightly so that it creates the new threads on the new wiper arm.
6. Test it.
7. Put the cap back on.

1. Use a flat screwdriver to remove the cap.
2. Use a socket to remove the nut.
3. Now the object is to remove the old arm by pulling it straight out towards you away from the shaft that comes from the motor thru the windshield. The trick is not destroying everything trying to get the old arm off from the shaft, and you DONT want to turn it, thus possibly breaking the motor. The solutions above work, but will possibly destroy the plastic boot keeping water from leaking in down the shaft. Its simple, put the nut back on a few turns so there is roughly a 1/8" gap between the nut and the old arm.
4. Using a large pliers, (I had a channel loc with approx. 16" handles) put it on the nut (so you dont ding the threads on the shaft) and the old arm and squeeze. Do it from many angles as possible and you should work it off. Try not to torque or twist the shaft, you dont want to pay to replace that motor. Working it all the way around like you are taking the lid off a paint can and it should pop free. If you dont know what I mean, remember the wiper slides out towards you away from the shaft.
5. Remove nut and it's off.
6. Slide on new arm so its at the proper 90 degree right most position. Genle tighten the nut so the new arm tightens down into the grooves on the shaft.
7. Test!!!
8. Install cap.

Good luck

No instructions on how to remove rear wiper blade on 2004 Town & Country touring. The wiper arm only raises about three inches from window, and there is no indication of a normal wiper removal at that...


there is a plastic cap where the arm connects to a post. pop this cap off with your finger nail or small screw driver. this cap hides a nut. remove the nut (10mm socket needed?) and pull the arm off to replace the blade
