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

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace the wiper linkages on this 1996 Chevy Tahoe and it's the same part and process on these Tahoes from '95 to 2000. The items you'll need are new wiper transmission linkages from 1AAuto.com, a Phillips screwdriver, a flat-blade screwdriver, a 10 millimeter, and an 11 millimeter socket, and a ratchet.

First, using a flat-blade screwdriver, just pry up this clip and 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. This panel just pulls off. Repeat the process on the other side. Then remove this Phillips screw and the Phillips screw in the same spot on the other side. We'll just fast-forward as Don does this. Now, pull off your weather strip. Then, remove these six additional Phillips screws. We'll fast-forward while Don does this. Now, pull the cowl up and forward. Now you just want to pull your washer hose off and slide the cowl out.

Now, loosen these two 10 millimeter nuts on the driver's side linkage. Once you've done that, you can push it right off of its stud. Remove these three 11 millimeter bolts, and we'll just fast forward as Don does that. Now, you can pull your driver's side linkage up and out. Now loosen the two 10-millimeter nuts on the passenger side linkage, and we'll fast-forward as Don does this. Then, push that off the stud and remove these three 11 millimeter bolts. Now, the passenger linkage will pull up and out.

On the left, are the old wiper linkages; on the right, are the new ones from 1A Auto. You can see they're identical and they're going to mount exactly the same. Now, on your passenger side wiper linkage, just loosen up the 10 millimeter nut on the outside and remove the one on the inside. Then feed the wiper linkage back into place. Push it back onto that wiper motor stud and replace that 10 millimeter nut. We'll just fast-forward as Don tightens up both of those 10 millimeter nuts. Now, push the linkage post up into place and replace those three 11 millimeter bolts. Now, loosen up the two 10 millimeter nuts on your driver's side wiper linkage and feed it back into place. Pull the linkage post up into place and push the other end onto the wiper motor stud and then replace those three 11 millimeter bolts. We'll fast-forward as Don tightens those up and then, tightens those two 10 millimeter nuts on the other end of the linkage.

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 and 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 and 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 and put the arm down, then repeat the process for the other arm and then you're all set.
