on My 1984 LeSabre, I found that there is a tab near where the wiper arm mounts to the pivot. If you bent the wiper arm back and pull the tab out with a pliers your can then remove the wiper arm. After you put the new one one you have push the tab back in. It has to go far enough in for the spring to be able to pull the wiper against the window.

How do you replace the wiper arm on a 2002 grand prix?

I just replaced the wiper transmission on a 2003 Sunfire. I assume the wiper system is the same as your 2002 Grand Prix. To replace the wiper arm you have to remove the plastic cap that covers the nut that holds the arm onto the stud. Once you have the cap removed and can see the nut, just unscrew it from the wiper arm. When the nut has been removed pull the wiper straight up from the stud. It might be a little difficult to remove. There is a spring underneath the top potrion of the wiper arm. Pull the front of the arm up and pull the bottom part of the arm straight up and it should pop off. Hope this is helpful to you. Good Luck!

How do you replace a rear wiper arm on a Pilot 2009?

People get terminology mixed up quite a bit so we have to clarify. Do you mean wiper arm or wiper blade? Wiper arm is attached to the spindle near the hood and is rarely removed or replaced. Wiper blade is the wiper frame assembly and rubber blade that is connected to the wiper arm and is changed very regularly. If you just mean the wiper blade (frame and assembly), then you need to get the correct wiper blade at the Honda dealer because aftermarket options are not available. They should also give you installation instructions.
