Hi, I'm Don from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and the next time you need a part for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace the driver's side wiper linkage on this 1996 Chevy Tahoe. The items you'll need for this is a new driver's side wiper linkage from 1AAuto.com, a Phillips screwdriver, a flat blade screwdriver, a 10mm and 11mm socket and ratchet.

First, using a flat blade screwdriver, just pry up this clip, pull the wiper arm up and off. Do the same for the other wiper arm.

Next, you want to remove this Phillips screw from either side of your vehicle. Then this panel just pulls off, and repeat the process on the other side. Then remove this Phillips screw and the Phillips screw on the same spot on the other side. We'll just fast-forward as Don does this. Now pull off your weather strip and remove these six additional Phillips screws. We'll fast-forward while Don does this. Now pull the cowl up and forward, and now you just want to pull your washer hose off and slide the cowl out.

Next, loosen up these two 10mm nuts. Once you've done that, you can push it right off that stud. Then remove these three 11mm bolts. Now we'll just fast-forward as Don does that. Now you can pull your driver's side linkage up and out.

In the back, is the old wiper linkage; up front is the new driver's side wiper linkage from 1AAuto.com. You can see they're identical, and they're going to fit exactly the same. Now loosen up the two 10mm nuts on your driver's side wiper linkage. Feed it back into place.

Pull the linkage post up into place, and push the other end onto the wiper motor stud. Then replace those three 11mm bolts. Now tighten up those three bolts. Then the two 10mm nuts, you can actually adjust the linkage a little bit. If you want at this point, you could put the wiper blade back on, adjust it so it parks correctly, and then tighten those nuts up.

Now, put your cowl panel back into place and reconnect the washer hose. Then line it up and replace those two Phillips screws on either side of the cowl panel. Then replace the six screws in the center of the cowl panel. Now replace those two side panels and the Phillips screw that holds them into place. Push the weather strip back on. Then close your hood.

You want to line up that line with the slot, push the arm back onto the post, push the tab in, put the arm down, and then repeat the process for the other arm. Then you're all set.
