I'm trying to replace the front windshield wipers on my 2004

Customer Question

i'm trying to replace the front windshield wipers on my 2004 gmc yukon. i have replacement bosch 22" blades but i can't raise the wiper far enough off the windshield to swap in the new blade. the new bosch blades are different from the one i took off but the wiper arm won't move enough to give me room to install the new one.

Hi there, I am Cam. Can I get your first name please?

These wiper arms will not come up to 90º like some others, rather it will hit about 45 and if you try to go past that it will damage the spring and such. TO get the old arms off you need to release the catch, push the hooked end of the arm deeper into the wiper blade then you can turn the blade and get it off. Does this make sense?
