Remove the bottom trim on the window. This pops off. Then remove both wiper blade assemblies by pulling the arm back toward the front of the truck, then pulling partially out the retaining clip, and then pulling the whole arm off of the truck.

Next, remove all of the screws (on top and under the hood) on the metal cowling (not sure if this is what its called) between the hood and window. This will give you access to a cover plate above the wiper motor linkage and make it much easier to get the bolts out of the motor. Remove the cover plate. Then remove the retaining clip from the wiper motor linkage and pull the control rods off.

Finally, remove both plugs from the motor. Remove all three bolts (one is a two part bolt with a ground attached) holding the motor on the firewall and pull it free.

Hopefully this will help. (Stupid me forgot the cover plate came off and tried to pull it out and take the retaining clip off that way.) Assembly is the reverse.

Windshield wipers don't work on my 1988 Dodge Dakota?

If the wiper motor isn't working, check the fuse to start with, then the wiring connections. If the wiper motor is working but not the wiper arms, unscrew the cowl piece just behind the hood ( the part that looks like a grill ) and see if the little plastic inserts that hold the wiper arms in place have dry-rotted or not. They are available at your local dodge dealership and are pretty cheap.

How do you remove windshield wiper arm on an 1988 s10 pickup?

Assuming that you mean "wiper blade" (blade and frame) which are replaced often rather than "wiper arm" (piece from the spindle at the hood to the wiper blade) which are rarely ever replaced, the 1988 Chevrolet S10 Pickup takes 16" 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.
