Here are the procedures. The ball joint remover is the only special tools required but you can make do with screwdrivers.

Remove rear hood seal with cowl top plastic screen and disconnect washer hose at in-line connector. Save in-line connector. Using a ball joint/tie rod separator, disconnect wiper arm linkage. Separate ball cap from ball. See Fig. 10 .
