Here is the procedure from the factory service manual:

  1. Remove the wiper arms and blades.
  2. Remove the wiper motor.
  3. Remove the six screws and two fasteners from the cowl vent.
  4. Remove the cowl vent.
  5. Remove the nut and two bolts from the pivot shafts.
  6. Slide the link assembly out of the driver's side access hole.

Installation

  1. Slide the link assembly into position through the driver's side access hole.
  2. Position the pivot shafts in their holes and install the mounting nut and bolts.
  3. Extend the link assembly fully and connect the link slot to the wiper motor ball joint.
  4. Install the wiper motor.
  5. Place the cowl vent in position and install screws and fasteners.
  6. Install the wiper arms and blades.
