SOURCE: How do i remove the wiper motor windscreen cowl

remove the 2 caps from the wipers. then there is 2 13mm or 14mm nuts holding on the wipers. after these are off the it will take some persuasion to get the wipers off. i like to spray some penetrating oil on the wipers to get them off easier, but after that you will want to push down on the arm where it has the joint closest to the bottom and they will wobble up and down and allow you to pull the wipers off. after they are off there is 4 screws that need to be removed on the passenger side of the rain tray that hold the cabin filter tray in place. pull the tray out then gently pry your fingers between the windshield and the plastic cowl and it will pop out. after it is loose slide it up towards the roof to gain access to the rain tray. reverse for reassembly.

SOURCE: 1998 Audi A6 Wiper Motor Removal Process

Hi Marc,

We have a 2002 Audi A6 and I've just been doing a bit of self help to try and fix the inoperative wiper - the problem is one of the spindles on which ht ewiper arm sits is stuck - I managed to bang it out, grease it and put it back - but I just can't get the wipers positioned properly so that they sweep and park correctly - anyhow, back to your problem which presumably you have sorted by now? There are 3 clips fixing the cowl to the vehicle - one on the left, the centre and on the right hand side - the clips simply pull away but it is easier to do if you have a long nose pliers.

Good luck

ps my email is gharborough@aol.com so don't reply to this email address.

SOURCE: how to remove the wiper arm to remove cowl

Look carefully at the base of the wiper blace. At the base of the arm - where it fits onto the shaft - you will see a small moveable tab. Pull it out - it fits into a groove on the shaft and prevents it from coming off. It may take some effort to move it because of the weathering. It also will take some patience to wiggle the arm off the shaft and may take some prying. Note that the shaft is a spline and when you put it back on the arm will need to be in the correct position or the blade will be in the wrong place.

How to replace the wiper motor on a 1994 volkswagon golf


The wiper motor on a Volkswagen is an electric motor connected through a drive linkage to the wiper arms. Windshield wipers are an integral feature for operating a motor vehicle safely. If your wipers are not functioning, or seem to lack the speed or power they used to have, the wiper motor should be removed and replaced immediately
.


Location
  • The wiper motor on a Volkswagen is located directly underneath the plastic cowl cover. The cowl cover is located directly below the windshield.

Removal
  • Begin by removing the wiper arms by prying off the covers at the base of the arms and removing the nuts that secure the arms to the drive shafts. Label the passenger and driver arms so they can be installed in the same positions. They are not interchangeable. Remove the rubber hood to cowl weather seal. Unscrew the plastic fasteners from the driver's side of the cowl cover, then remove this half of the cover. Remove the fasteners from the passenger's side cowl cover and remove this half of the cover. Disconnect the windshield wiper motor wiring harness by separating the plastic wiring connector. Remove the three bolts that secure the wiper motor to the vehicle's body. Pull the motor slightly away from the body, then remove the nut that connects the motor shaft to wiper linkage. Remove the motor.

Installation
  • Place the new wiper motor into position in the cowl and reconnect it to the wiper arm linkage. Then reinstall the three retaining bolts. Reconnect the plastic wiring connector to the wiper motor wiring harness. Place the cowl covers into position below the windshield and reinstall the plastic fasteners that retain them. Reinstall the rubber hood to the cowl weather seal. Reinstall the wiper arms in the same position you removed them from, along with the wiper arm retaining nuts and lower wiper arm covers. Turn the windshield wipers on and test for proper operation. If the wiper blades slap against the bodywork surrounding the windshield, loosen the nuts that connect the wiper arms to the shafts and adjust.

According to the Haynes repair manual Chapter 12:

1. Disconnect the negative battery cable
2. Detach washer hoses, lift the wiper arm covers and mark the wiper arm locations on the pivot shaft for later re-installation. Remove the wiper pivot nut and remove the wiper arms.
3. Remove the cowl cover (from chapter 11)
3a. Remove the wiper arms then remove the screws that hold the lower area of the cowl cover to the wiper module.
3b. Disengage the quarter turn fasteners that hold the outer ends of the cowl cover to the wiper module.
3c. Open the hood and release the wing nuts that hold the front of the cowl cover to the wiper module.
3d. Close the hood but do not latch it. Now remove the outboard screws and lift the cover up enough to get to the washer hose.
3e. Disconnect the washer hose from the right washer nozzle. Close the hood but do not latch it. Lift the cowl cover toward the windshield and off the vehicle.
3f. Installation is the reverse of removal
4.Open the hood. Disconnect the wiper motor electrical connector.
5. Disconnect the windshield washer hose from the coupling inside the unit. Disconnect the drain tubes from the bottom of the wiper unit.
6. Remove the wiper unit mounting bolts. (Picture appears to be three (possibly allen head) bolts)
7. Remove wiper unit.
8. Installation is the reverse of removal. Wiper blade and wiper arm adjustment is measured with the wipers parked; correct adjustment is the lower wiper arm approximately 1.5 inches distance from the cowl cover and the upper arm approximately 2.5 inches from the lower arm. Operate the wiper motor and check that the wiper motor parks when the wiper switch is OFF.

G5 oil change


the filter is a cartridge filter. you will need a 1 1/4 inch socket to remove the filter. it is indeed on the left side. you will have to remove the oil filler cap, then remove the cowling/cover (plastic with foam padding-about the size of a regular pillow). the cowling is removed by just lifting straight up on the entire piece of plastic.with the filler cap off and the cowling off, you will find a round piece of plastic with a 1 1/4 inch hexagonal shaped head. use your 1 1/4 inch socket (or large crescent wrench) to remove the oil filter cover. the old cartridge pops off of the round oil filter cover, new one pops on, use new oil on the green gaskets, tighten the oil filter cover with new cartridge in to it's place and the rest of the oil change is the same as most every other american car. a picture of the oil filter at http://www.power-21.com/FramPower21i/Image.aspx?f=images/Fram/CH9018_012406.jpg
