What's up, guys? I'm Andy from 1A Auto. In this video, I'm gonna show you how to replace this lift-gate trim piece on this 2010 Honda Fit. If you need parts for your vehicle, click the link in the description and head over to 1aauto.com.

Remove the rear wiper arm. We need to take this little trim piece off. Just slide that out, just like that.

We're gonna remove this nut. I'm gonna use a 10 millimeter socket and ratchet. Gonna hold the arm while I loosen this up. Take that off.

Just grab the arm. Just rock it back and forth. Should be able to break it free. It's a good idea to mark this before you take it off. You can mark the windshield, or just take note of where it was before.

We wanna pull this trim off, just grab underneath here. Pull it. Pull it straight down. You can use a trim tool.

It comes right down. Has all these push retainers. Little bee in there.

There's a screw right here, you can try to use a Phillips head screwdriver, or use can use an 8 millimeter socket and ratchet. Take this screw up. It's in there pretty tight.

All right, so I'm taking a pry bar and going through here. There's all these push clips that hold this on. There's one right here. And there's some more over here. There's one there. You can try to get this one up through the pry bar, as well. Just push it like that. And there's a couple more over here.

All right, so I got most of those released, except for one right here. Just gonna see if I can pull from the front.

There we go. Oh, that one broke right there. But those would be the push clips you can get off from the inside. And then that one's got that screw.

If you could get a pry bar right in between here, you can get that last clip that broke on ours. Either with a pry bar or a small screwdriver, right above the wiper motor.

Just take this. We wanna slide this over the wiper motor. Just get the clips lined up. It's lined up. Just snap it back into place. There we go. And if the weather stripping didn't line up, like right there, you can just take a little pick. Little pick, get underneath here, get that, make sure that looks good all the way around.

Take this screw, and 8 millimeter socket extension and a ratchet, get this started. And then just snug it down.

All right, take this panel. Just line the clips up. And just press it back up.

To reinstall this wiper arm, you wanna line this up. Just like that. Take this nut, get this started. Take a 10 millimeter socket and ratchet. And I'm gonna hold the arm and just snug this up. Not too tight. Make sure it doesn't ... It's not too loose. Take this cover, and just slide it over.
