83 cj7 windshield frame

Does anyone know how to get the pivots and wipers off of the windshield frame of a 83 cj7? I am replaceing mine and cant figure out how to get them off of my old one. Also when i take the glass out do I need to by a new seal? the old one looks fine so it must have been replaced before? thanks

To get the wiper arms off the pivots:
There is a small "clip" under the wiper arm, right at the pivot. Gently push this away from the pivot and pull or pry on the arm to slide it off the splined shaft. There is a step that the clip fits into that prevents the wiper arm from falling off. The arm should slide off the pivot fairly easy.

To get the pivots out of the windshield frame:
Once the wiper arms are off, this is a piece of cake! Just unscrew the nut on the outside of the w/s frame, pull the plastic oval shaped plugs out of the back (interior) of the w/s frame, and slide the pivots out. You will have to unclip the wiper actuation arms from the pivots to remove them as well (inside the w/s frame ).

Good luck! Hope I helped.

As for the seal... If it seems in a good condition, by all means reuse it... That is if there are no traces of sealer inside the seal, otherwise you might have a leak problem after the reinstall. For the price of a new seal I'd rather get a new one. Just make sure you use a good sealant (window to seal and seal to frame)otherwise you will have leaks, even if the seal is new.
