Hello, there are different types of mounts for the wipers. Most of my Ford and Mercury products have a U looped end on the wiper arm. There is a button on the wiper and you push the plastic button and slide the wiperblade off the U bracket.

What is sometimes tricky is the wiper arm goes through and underneath the new blade. When you slide the new blade into the looped end it will lock.

Autozone will install for free and Walmart is kind of neat. Walmart will install free and you pay the same price for the blade as off the shelf.

There are other kinds of mounts. I have seen POST mounts which are simply a post on the end of the arm. But there are different size posts. The plastic clip is removed to these and the blade simply lifts off. Then reattach the clip.

Worthy of mention. Put wipers on and turn off ignition when the wiper is conveniently stopped at a place where you can easily reach them. Some wiper arms can be lifted and they will stay lifted off the glass for service.

Is there a code to reset my radio/cd player in my 2006 mercury monterey mini van?

What are you trying to reset? Just the clock or all the selected stations? You can try disconnecting radio's fuse or the ground wire to the vans battery for a few minutes.

I have a 2005 mercury Monterey van with a check engine light on. Autozone diagnosed either a mass air flow sensor or O2 sensor problem. I tried cleaning the air flow sensor with air flow sensor cleaner but...

If it is running lean, I'd check correct fuel pressure. Then check for a vacuum leak. 02 sensors are part of a tune-up. I don't like to replace parts unless I'm sure.

I can't rule out a maf sensor.

How do I change the cabin air filter?

In the engine compartment, look for a horizontal cover plate in the very front of the black plastic 'cowl', on the passenger side of the vehicle. It's roughly in front of the passenger side wiper blade.

The cover is approximately 2" x 10", and latches on the right-side, remove that cover and the filter is just lifted out

Got an oil change and transmission fluid change, right after van sounds like an airplane taxing down the runway. Was fine before anyone touched it. Louder when you turn or accelerate.

have a shop check it out. Did they just change the trans fluid or "flush it", bad things usually happen when transmissions are flushed. check the transmission and power steering fluid levels.

Liftgate on van not working at all

There are 2 support shocks that support the lift gate. You need to replace them. One or both of them are no longer supporting the door. Your local auto parts store will have them in stock. Compare prices with competitive stores, prices vary depending on where you purchase them from. It't really easy to replace them.

I had the same problem with my van in october. Turns out that water was dripping on the conection where the wiring harness connects to the ECM (passenger side fire wall in the engine compartment). I pulled the ECM dryed the conectors and made a cover to protect the connection. Has worked fine ever since. I think there is a TSB on the issue.
