[edit] Fix a Rear Window Wiper

  • Disconnect the washer hose from the base of the rear wiper arm. The hose connection will pull straight off the nozzle on the wiper arm mount.
  • Lift the wiper arm away from the rear window. Place a small punch or similar tool into the hole at the top of the wiper arm base. Run the punch straight through the hole on the bottom of the wiper arm.
  • Use a flat-bladed screwdriver to push the spring tab back away from the pivot arm. Pull the wiper arm free of the assembly.
  • Insert a punch or small tool into the hole on the top of the wiper arm base. Slide it through to the hole on the bottom of the wiper arm.
  • Press the new wiper arm onto the mount until the spring tab locks into place. Remove the punch tool from the arm base.
  • Connect the washer hose to the nozzle. Test your rear wiper and the washer fluid spray function to be sure they are fully functional.
