Nice writeup!! I just did this today. I bought all new clips (not at all necessary in my case, but added a total of $7 to the job, so I figured I'd go for it). The only weird thing was the black clip (shown in one of the pictures above) that is unlike the other white ones.


The only thing I'd add is matchmarking the wiper arms and posts so when you reinstall them you don't have to guess how to align them. Since I got the car, the driver's side wiper had been misaligned and was hitting the windshield trim, so I took this opportunity to fix it...


Playing with the wiper arm alignment added a few minutes to the job, but overall, this is a 15 minute project that will run you right around $35 to do... Well worth the effort.


Thanks!!

Be sure to put a mark on the wiper arm near the bolt and also on the bolt so you get the same orientation upon reassembly.

I have this very nice small gear puller that will make taking the arm off a breeze.

Colin (slickfast) still needs to borrow this.

I'm getting ready to place my order now, does anyone know exactly how many clips and grommets are needed?

Thanks.

Thanks.
you have a few options
call the dealer
look at a parts diagram
open your hood and look yourself

the 3rd option is by far the best
