Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. We've been selling auto parts for over 30 years.

To pull the wiper on and off, we have this little cover here. Take a flat blade screwdriver, just get in behind here, pull this little cover off.

Next, we'll take this nut off with a 12 millimeter socket and ratchet. Pull the arm while you break the nut free. Pull the nut off. All right. To get this off, take the arm and you're going to try to go back and forth, and pull right off.

Now, you're going to put the wiper arm on. Push it down, put it in the parks spot. We'll put this nut on, and I'll take my 12 millimeter socket and ratchet, snug this down. Hold the arm while you're snugging it. Take the cap, put the cap on. Just press it down.

To reconnect, we're going to twist this back so that the tabs are in there. Then take the pump and push it straight on. Lock it in.

Thanks for watching. Visit us at for quality auto parts, fast and free shipping, and the best customer service in the industry.
