I did mine this past weekend. I ordered the honda plug from ebay and then went to lowes and bought a couple washers and a 6x20 bolt worked perfectly.

As for the wiper arm removal itself, I took a leap of faith and just put my weight into pushing it downwards and it immediately came off its grove system.

The hardest part was getting off the plastic pieces lol

It really does look much better without the arm.

On the old Ephatch, didn't we have a big discussion about how the wiper arm actually pulls off not twists off? I tried to twist off my wiper arm and it started to crack...

Well, the arm is threaded in by a vertical groove system. I would imagine directly pulling on the wiper arm would end with broken glass.

Well, I got an adjustable wrench and tried turning the wiper arm Counter Clockwise (lefty loosy) and all it did was start to F up the plastic of the wiper arm. I put the wrench on the two flat spots on the wiper arm right near where the metal shank comes out of the glass. Its still on there, but I've been contemplating using a 3 arm puller. Anyone have any pics of the end of the wiper motor shank? I hate to bring this issue back from the dead, but I'd hate to break my rear window...:boom:

be sure to paint the bolt u use BEFORE you put it on.

if not it will rust till all hell, i didnt have any paint when i did it so i left it, it rusted, then i had to take it off n paint n put it back on.

i also added a lil bit of silicone sealer between the washer n bolt, for added protection to leakage.

Red box is where you take off a nut that threads on over the wiper arm. Horizontally spiraling threads (like a normal nut/bolt).

Blue Box is where the wiper arm is *pushed* onto the wiper motor stud. It does not *turn* at all like a normal nut/bolt. Vertically splined, no twisting required/necessary. If you can't get it off by just pulling, rent/borrow/buy a 3 arm puller and save your rear window. :rant:

BTW I just ended up hacking mine off with a dremel

is the NUT,RR the plug u have to buy?

07-31-2008, 05:40 PM
Yes the $15 part is the block off that goes in the grommet (in the window) left when you remove the wiper motor. The part might cost a little more, I think this DIY is dated.

Tools needed:

10mm socket
Phillips Screwdriver
Crescent Wrench

Honda Parts Needed

1 x 90301-SR3-000 - NUT, RR. (6MM)
1 x 90156-SH3-000 - BOLT-WASHER (6X24)
2 x 52621-SB2-004 - WASHER, RR.

1. Open up the hatch and take out the inserts located on the inside of the hatch. They use those plastic clips to hold them in place. For the last piece you must use your Phillips head screwdriver and unscrew the screw that is located in the handle.

2. Now take off the hose that carries the wiper fluid and all I did was tie it off really tight. I will have to do something about this later but for now just tie it off. Also you will need to take off the wires that give the wiper power. Just unclip the harness.

3. Now look at the top side of your hatch and take the little cover where the squirter is housed. It swings up and down and you can also take it off. Now take off that nut.

4. Now with a little bit of force twist off the wiper blade. It should come off pretty easily. Now take off that little black piece. Take your adjustable wrench and take off that large nut. Once that is off Go back to the underside of your hatch.

5. Now you have to take off 3 nuts and bolts. They are black and are holding the wiper mechanism in place. Once you are done with that slowly ease the wiper mechanism off. Leave the black rubber piece there. You have to reuse it.

6. Now you have to take the entire mechanism off. On to the installation of the pieces you ordered. First take the black piece and put it on the top side of the hole.

7. Go back to the underside of your hatch and place the two large washers on there and then put that bolt and washer on. Once you have it tight you are done installing the mechanism.

8. Now all you have to do is to put everything back together.
