Take the wiper arms off -- you do this by looking under the wiper arm where it mounts on the linkage post (pivot point). There's a bent over piece of metal that is attached to the backside of the arm (toward the rear of the car). Lever it downward with a flatbladed screwdriver. It may help to squirt a bit of WD-40 in the backside of the wiper arm where it mounts over the pivot hub coming through the cowling. This metal piece will come down about 1/2" and is part of a piece that slides up against the pivot hub and holds it in place. When it's in the downward position it allows the arm to pull off the hub.

Remove the screws holding the cowling to the car. There are 4 along the bottom of the windshield and one in the center of the slotted grill in the cowling. These are all Philips head screws.

Open the hood and pull the rubber strip off the front lip of the cowling and you'll find several more screws holding the cowling to the car. Remove these and close the hood.

Pull the cowling up & off the car. You'll now see the motor and linkage. Remove the electrical harness connector by pushing the small red tab up & out of the connector (in the middle of the connector) and press on the flat tab on the connector closest to the outside of the car.

Remove the 3 bolts (10 mm) holding the linkage & motor mount to the car. There is a bolt on either end of the linkage arms and one directly below the motor.

Remove the motor & the linkage from the car.

Remove the 3 small (8mm) bolts and 1 large (12mm) nut from the motor attaching it to the mount.

That's it. Now just replace everything in reverse order & you're all set.

What size windshield wipers fit a 1992 wrangler?

The 1992 Jeep Wrangler wiper blade sizes are 11" wiper blades on both sides front and a 16" rear wiper (if applicable). 11" wipers can be difficult to find in stores. 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.

How do you change windshield wipers on 1992 Ford F-350 Pickup not the whole assembly just the top part that holds the blades?

I am going with the assumption that question is "how do you change the wiper blade (blade and frame)", not "how do you change the rubber blade (wiper refill)", and not "how do you change the wiper arm". Wiper Blade = The wiper frame that attaches to the wiper arm including the rubber blade. 1. Step 1 is to be sure you get the right replacement wiper blades. The 1992 Ford F-Series Pickup (including the F-350) takes 18" wiper blades on both sides front.

How do you change the wiper motor on a 1994 Ford F150?

I changed mine (1992) by removing the vented piece that runs between the windshield and the hood. Pop the hood and you will find screws to remove this as well as a a few screws from the top in between the grill type vents near the wiper blades. ( Remove the wiper arms and unscrew th antennae also) Lift this pc. out and you will gain access to the nuts that secure the motor to the firewall. Remove the motor harness, then disconnect the motor from the wiper connector. Try new motor by connecting to the harness and turning it on from the cab BEFORE you take anything apart. This will verify taht the motor is the problem. Good luck!
