Removing the wiper motor and linkages from a Toyota Hilux is pretty straight forward.
|First you have to remove the electrical plug from the starter motor, followed by the 4 x 10mm bolts holding the wiper motor to the firewall.|
|Next, pull the wiper motor away from the firewall so that you can adjust it so that the linkage is poking through. Now using a 1/2 ring spanner undo the nut that holds the linkage to the wiper motor. Once the nut is undone, I use a large flat blade screwdriver and hammer to tap the back of the linkage to free it from the wiper motor. ( It doesn't take much, just a quick tap to free it from the tappered fine spline)|
|Next, undo the 6 x 12mm bolts that hold the linkages for the wiper arms.|
|Then you have to gently manipulate the linkage so that you can remove it through the hole in the cowl area furtherest away from where the wiper motor is mounted.|
