I need to replace the wiper linkage / transmission on this car for my daughter. The spline has stripped on the drivers side. How do I remove the body panel to get to the motor linkage assembly.

Thanks in advance

1. Remove the windshield wiper arm and blade.
NOTE:
Care must be taken not to scratch the engine hood.

2. Remove the weather strip and the cowl top cover.

3. Disconnect the windshield wiper motor connector and remove the windshield
wiper motor and the link.

Hi,

Thank you very much.

One more question if you would be so kind.

Looks like 4 clips(?) Hold the cowl on the engine side. Haven't seen the car yet to examine. She is bringing it over tonight

Thanks in advance
