Alright heres the deal.... went to the library and got the Chiltons manual for my 97 Bonni.
Basically ended up taking off the wipers and repositioning them. They do not sweep as far, but now they sink in under the hood and i'm happy. steps
Put wipers in the 1/2 swipe across the windshield postion
Pull up on wiper and push out the pin away from where it connects to the rod.
This should now lock the wiper up and come off easy. If it does not, replace pin to original position and try over.
The entire wiper is now off
Go back into car and turn the **** to off for the wipers. Now once done turning turn car off.
replace wipers by putting them on again slightly past the designated resting place(towards engine)
Push metal clip back towards rod and you are done.
Any questions...lemme know
