Front Wiper Arm Removal?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for advice on how to remove the front wiper arms. On other vehicles I'm used to popping off a cap to access the bolt but I can't figure it out with my 2012 Edge. I'm ready to replace the front struts and to do that it looks like I need to remove the wiper arms followed by the plastic panel between the hood and the windshield. Advice would be helpful because I don't want to force anything.

It is exactly that simple.

Wiper Pivot Arm — Front

Removal and Installation

  1. Remove the front wiper pivot arm caps.
  2. Remove the front wiper pivot arm retaining nuts and the front wiper pivot arms.
    • To install, tighten to 30 Nm (22 lb-ft).
  3. To install, reverse the removal procedure.

Thanks! I have to look closer at the caps. I couldn't see a way to get them off and was hesitant to stick a thin blade in somewhere and start prying.

They should come off fairly easy, they snap into place. maybe try wearing gloves with grips and pulling on them? If you lose/break one, it's a couple of bucks from the dealer.
