roll Removing wiper arms

Verry silly question but I am failing to figure this out.
On other cars that I own/owned the wiper arms can be put in an upright position to remove the wipers. Here i find that the hood is in the way.

When the hood is closed I can't get them to stand upright, and with the hood open the wipers hit the hood.

Also I can't find where to unbolt the wiper arms. On the other cars there was a plastic cap wich had to be removed and underneath there was the bolt needing to be removed.

I am trying to replace my wiper motor, so I really need to remove the arms.

If anyone might can show me pictures of how to do this, or in simple (read: not to technical) English that would be very helpfull!

Thanks

Re: Removing wiper arms

Not sure of what year the car is, but if you mean a 1992 and newer, you only have to raise the arms a small amount and slide the clip out to hold them up. Then you lift them off.

Re: Removing wiper arms

It's a Grand Marquis from 97.

Will try again tomorrow (9.51pm out here now)

Thank you again for the quick response, and I'll post pictures of the process!

Forgot to take pictures of the process, but it all worked out in the end!

Got the new wiper motor in place and wipers go back normally again! Works like a charm!

Thanks for the tip!

Re: Removing wiper arms

Hey murV8,

How did you do it? I need to adjust the arm (wipers move, but do not wipe the windshield!) and I can't figure out how to do so? How did you replace the arm? I'm thinking if I replace it all together, I would rest assured knowing that it's fixed.

Thanks,
Noob!

Re: Removing wiper arms

What is it doing? Is it not pushing against the windshield hard enough?
