Removing Rear Wiper

4 posts in this topic

I want to de wiper my fiesta, I know how to do it but was just wondering how easy the panel in the boot is to remove. I had a quick go at trying to remove it but the edges seemed kind of flimsy and was scared I snapped or damaged it. is there a certain knack to removing it?

Hi Stuart

I have dewipered my car today.

It is really simple.

Remove the two side trims off either side of the boot by unscrewing the two screws that secure them in.

Then unscrew the screw in the tailgate handle.

Gently pull away the plastic trim, don't worry if it cracks and bangs, its ok

You will then be left with all the motor and wiring showing.

There are three bolts holding the motor in, unscrew these and gently separate the wiper from the motor.

I used two grommets, one inner and one outer.

Inner is a 19mm grommet

Outer is 24mm grommet, but im currently looking for a better one.

Hope this helps?

Cheers

Adam
