Kia Carens RP (2013-2018) Service Manual / Body Electrical System / Windshield Wiper/Washer / Front Wiper Arm Repair procedures

Removal
  
If you remove a wiper arm, replace it with a new one.
If you reassemble the removed arm, its serration wear may cause the wiper to be set off position. If you turn on the wiper while in this condition, some interference may occur between the blades or between the wiper and the cowl cover or the A-pillar.
1.
Loosen the windshield wiper arm nut after removing a wiper cap (A).
2.
Remove the windshield wiper arm and blade (B).

3.
If necessary, release the wiper blade fixing clip by pulling up and remove the wiper blade from the inside radius of wiper arm.

Installation
1.
Insert the key into the ignition switch and turn it to the “IGN ON” position.
  
Identify where to mount the wiper, either the LHD/ RHD, driver side or passenger side, by referring to the mark found on the inner side of the wiper arm head (LHD Dr, LHD Pa, RHD Dr, or RHD Pa).
- LHD/ RHD, driver side/ passenger side blade mark

2.
Position the end of the blade to align it with the mark on the windshield.
3.
The driver side arm and blade must be located above the passenger side one. (Always check the direction, LHD or RHD, when mounting the parts.)
4.
Before tightening the nut, firmly hold the arm and blade in place and assemble the wiper arm.
5.
Install the wiper arm cap.

6.
If the assembled wiper arm is not lined up with the mark on the windshield, activate the opposite electronic motor wiper arm and set the blade setting position in teach-in mode to move the wiper arm to the correct position.
(Refer to Front Wiper/ Washer - "Front Wiper Calibration")
