Our second question was "would it be helpful to remove the wiper motor, windshield washer reservoir and fusebox in addition to what Mo told us to do?

Expert:  Gary replied 2 years ago.

just removing the plastic wiper black piece is all you need to remove as once the alternator is loose and moved a side then the power steering pump has to be removed and lifted up and moved to the side then there will be enough room to get it out

the problem with removing the wiper linkage is that wiper system is timed and when you remove the linkage it will put it out of timing and the wipers will hit each other.it is best to not unhook and wiper linkage

Do Not Understand Plastic Wiper Black Piece

Expert:  Gary replied 2 years ago.

with the hood open there is a rubber strip that goes along the back of the firewall remove that and pop up the plastic piece

looking at this picture there should be a plastic air inlet piece that snaps onto the cowlgraphic lip that you pulled the rubber strip off and that plastic will just pop up by hand
