wiper removal

It may be a dumb question, but how do you take off the windshield wipers on a '98 TJ?

There is a little clip at the base. I think hes trying to take the wiper arms off. I believe your owners manual will say.

You need to lift the wiper blade off the windshield a bit. There is a clip at the base of the wiper arm that moves out towards the cowl. I use a flat blade screw driver for mine. There is no alignment key so getting them back on takes a few tries to get it perfect.

My wind shield has cross hairs showing where the wipers are supposed to rest.

I have a 1990 Sahara that someone put the wipers horizontal. When in use, they would wipe water only to vertical and not all the way over the driver side field of view.
I took a small screwdriver (smaller than #2) and slid it into a small hole that is at the hinge of the wiper arm. Doing so released a clip and gave me better leverage to just slide the arm right off. I then rotated the wiper about 30* to my wanted angle, and slid the wiper back on. Finally removing the small screwdriver in the hole.

Easy Day.
