All you need to do is use a flat head screw driver or a butter knife in a jam and just push the metal clips on the blade's back and then it should slide right off. I have tried to open up the clips on the wipers which will work but is not worth the time to try to get the back lined up.

If the wiper is from the factory my 2004 wiper blades were literally attached to the metal. I took a knife & cut them loose. I then opened the clips and re-aligned them & yes it did take time.

First, make sure you have the 19" wipers needed, and use the computer selector in the store.....walmart has a good one. Pylon 19" or Anco 19" work fine. Lift wiper from front windshield, flip blade so rubber points towards you, depress plastic tab on wiper adaptor and pull straight down. Installation is the reverse of this operation. For the rear windshield wiper....beware of bosch micro edge 11", they DON'T have the proper adaptor in the package. Trust me, I know. Best bet is to go to the dealers and pay the extra money for a blade that will fit the rear windshield. I ended up buying a Bosch 11" micro edge and spent 3 hours trying to figure out how to install it, until I finally decided that none of the adaptors worked. Unfortunately I had broken the original blade's adaptor when I took it off the wiper arm. I ended up securing the bosch blade on what was left of the original adaptor with a black cable tie. The blade doesn't wipe in a perfect arch, but it does work, and will have to stay on there for awhile. I have heard that 12" wiper blades will work in the rear of the 2003 Liberty, but I'm not sure about that, and more than likely you'd have to use the original adaptor. I'll be going to the dealer to get the "proper" replacement blade for the rear windshield next time.

NOTE: To prevent glass and/or paint damage, do not pry windshield wiper pivot arm from windshield wiper mounting arm and pivot shaft with metal or sharp tool. 1. Turn ignition switch to the ACC position. Turn turn signal and windshield wiper switch ON. Allow windshield wiper motor to move the windshield wiper mounting arm and pivot shafts three or four cycles, then turn off the turn signal and windshield wiper switch. This will place the windshield wiper mounting arm and pivot shafts in the park position. Turn ignition switch to the OFF position. 2. Remove the windshield wiper pivot arm and windshield wiper blade by first applying downward pressure on the windshield wiper pivot arm head, while holding the windshield wiper pivot arm. Then lift the windshield wiper pivot arm to the highest position and, using finger pressure only, grasp slide latch tab and slide latch out from under the windshield wiper pivot arm head. Remove windshield wiper pivot arm and windshield wiper blade assembly. 3. To remove the windshield wiper blade, insert a screwdriver into the slot provided at top of the windshield wiper blade frame, push down on spring lock and pull the windshield wiper blade from the windshield wiper mounting arm and pivot shaft . 4. Install the windshield wiper blade onto the new replacement windshield wiper pivot arm. See sources and related links below for replacement wiper blade information.

The 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee has standard hook-end wiper attachments on the front and a fairly specialized pinch tab rear wiper arm attachment. See sources and related links below to view wiper blade installation videos and for information on the special rear wiper blade.

Not sure what you mean by "windshield wiper cover," however if you're asking how to remove the rubber blade from the plastic frame - be careful. The end caps do come off but its not recommended. I recommend simply replacing the entire wiper blade. See videos on link below.

The 2007 Jeep Liberty has the most common hook-end wiper arms. See sources and related links below for installation videos. Also, purchase the replacement blades first and there will be additional instructions/illustrations on the replacement packages. Locate and press the tab or button where the wiper blade is inserted into the hook of the wiper arm and pull wiper blade out of hook. You may have to rotate and flex the blade to make enough clearance for the hook to pass through.

The wiper blade misses the windshield in the middle of the wipe. Is there an adjustment for that ? I have replaced the wiper to no avail.

Remove the windshield wiper arm from the windshield wiper motor. Remove the wiring harness. Remove the retaining nut. Reverse the process to install the new windshield wiper motor.

Lift wiper assembly off of windshield into "up" position. Rotate 90 degrees. Pull wiper blade assembly gently toward the windshield. It slips right off. Note: Put protective barrier like cardboard or a towel over windshield in case blade assembly snaps back toward windshield to avoid cracking the windshield.

Turn the wiper switch to the on position. Turn the key on and as soon as the wipers go straight up then turn them off. That will make it easier to remove the blade. Lift the wiper away from the windshield while pulling down. Be sure to not let the wiper fall against the windshield. Push the new one in place and you are done.

The 2002 Jeep Liberty rear wiper blade is unique to Jeep. You'll probably have to get the part at the dealer and may be able to ask for the install procedure.

To replace a windshield wiper motor for a 1998 F150, first remove the bottom trim on the window. Then remove both wiper blade assemblies and all screws on the metal cowling. Remove the retaining clip from the wiper motor linkage and pull the controls rods off.

There are several things that you can do to help stop your windshield wipers from squeaking. Clean the wiper blade often to remove dirt and debris. Squirt windshield cleaner fluid on the windows to remove dirt. Ensure that the wiper is screwed in correctly. Replace the blades when it is needed.

a windshield wiper blade is somthing you use to wash your windows on cars so that the windows look very clean instead of just leaving them dirty

Pull the wiper arm away from the rear glass. Pivot the blade so that it is perpendicular to the arm and push towards the wiper arm, and voila! See sources and related links below for wiper blade installation videos and for information on the special rear wiper blade.
