    Hope I have this in the right section. I'm going to have to repair the wipers on my car and was wondering how to get the cowl screen off. I searched but couldn't find anything. I think it attaches with the rectangular looking clips but I'm not sure how to get them loose and I don't want to break anything. Top pic is an overall pic of the screen and the bottom is a close up of one of the clips I believe hold it on. Thanks for any help

    Just gently pry the screen up at each clip.

    Looks to be the same set up as a F-Body

    I'll give it a shot. I think I've got to replace the plastic parts in the wiper motor linkage. I've heard this is pretty common with these cars.

    You might even be able to use your fingers to get it off. It doesn’t take much to remove.
