Remove the grill around the wipers, make sure to get all the screws, some are hard to find, but when you get all the screws the grill lifts off and exposes the wiper assembly. Remove wiper arms, nuts are under a cap at the base of the wiper arm. Unplug the electric assembly. Remove all mounting bolts from the wiper assembly and it will lift out. This works for a 2000 f150 so it is probably the same for 1998.

The 1985 Ford F150 wiper blade sizes are 18" wiper blades on both sides front. See sources and related links below for more information. Since there are over 22 different wiper arm attachments, do not buy wipers just by length only - be sure to lookup exact wiper blade part numbers by vehicle make, model and year for the brand wiper you decide to purchase. This ensures correct length AND correct attachment.
