You Q/A

You will need
-flat head screwdriver
-14-15mm socket.
take the flat head screwdriver and pop off the plastic cap at the base of the arm. I cant remember off hand what size the nut is, but i believe it is a 14-15mm. Do this with the hood open.... undo the bolt. slowly work the arm up left to right and becarefull it will get to a point where the spring in the arm will pop it off. I say becarefull because it will want to jump up and chip the paint off the hood. To reinstall Put the wiper in back inplace bolt the nut down about 3 threads and test your wiper to see if it covers the whole area designed for the wind sheild. once you have found the sweat spot bolt it down and pop the cap back on. It may take a few time to get it back into the right place. I hope this helps out.
