How to remove TJ wipers

Since it seems that everyone is having trouble figuring out how to take the wipers off, I thought I'd do a little writeup for it. Pics included.

STEP 1: Lift the wiper off the glass.



STEP 2: Find the tab.



STEP 3: Using pliers or a flat screw driver, slide the tab down.





STEP 4: Pull the wiper arm away from the knob.



It's that easy!!!

There are little ridges inside the arm, and the tab slides over the hole to keep it on the knob.



Be sure when you re-attach the arm to the knob that the wiper blade is horizontal.



Otherwise it will look like this:




Hope this helps!!! Any questions post below or PM me, I'll help you out.

Thanks for taking the time to do this with pics. It should help out alot of the new guys. Actually it should be in the TJ FAQ's sticky. We should do one for all the basic functions/removables of our Jeeps. (door hinge nuts, windshield folding, etc.)

No prob!

I'll do for the removable doors, but I can't do the windshield since I have the hi-lift hood mount. I'll think about what other stuff might be an issue as well, and get those up here....

I tried pulling off the arms to get to my clogged drain in the cowl area, but they seemed to be stuck. I don't remember if I pulled the clips as far as they can go, but any tips on how to yank them off? Or did yours just slide off?

Awesome. I'm going to write a "TJ Tech Boot Camp" thread and I'll be sure to include all of your tutorials!

While you're out there with the camera... may I suggest the Fuse for the dome lights and pulling the drain plugs as well?

First time, especially if you live in a wetter area than So Cal, they're gonna be a little hard to get off. In one of the pics, I show the tab all the way down. Once you get it down that far, you might have to tug a little on the base of the arm to get it to loosen. Try wiggling it back and forth also.... Hope that helps!!!

Never pulled the drain plugs... but I'm working on the door-removal pics right now. I'll include the dome light fuse also.

You know, my first thought was "oh gawd, what a silly thing to write up" Then I noticed that I put mine back on and didn't make sure it was horizontal and the wiper tries to run off the side of the windshield every time I use it...

Good write-up.

Thanks for your write up SpydermanTJ. Really useful.

I'm trying to figure out where the water comes from when it rains. It gets in to the drivers footwell somehow. I cleaned some dirt out from the pan holding the wiper motor so fingers crossed!

Cheers,
