if you know where the wiper motor is there is 4 or 2 bolt holding it on. it will just be a bolt not and nuts. thanks


The above is completely incorrect.

First off their is 3 bolts holding it on.

But it is so much more complicated. you need to remove the access panel that leads to the cowl, you need to pry the ball joint appart. a screw driver works, then manuver the motor in a way you can take the bolt off from behind, (hopefully you dont have large hands) (hopefully you do have ratcheting wrenches, although it is possible with out one... just a pain) once that nut comes off, pop off the pieces its holding on, and the replacment is the opposite.... but dont expect the take out to be easy.

You will probably have to remove the cowl that covers the linkage. When you do that, the linkage should come out then. There are probably C clips connecting the individual wiper arms to the linkage.

How do you change the wiper blades in a 1991 Ford Ranger?

On our 90 Ford ranger the wipers are on a pin arm. Just twist and pull the wipers off the pin. Rain-X makes a replacement wiper, but you will have to change the connector with the other one provided. The first one is removed just by pulling up on the connector. Follow the instructions for putting on the new connector and you will be set to go.
