    I've got a 2004 excab and want to change the wipers on it and I'll be darned if I can see clearly how to do it. It looks like there is a tab that either has to be pulled up or pushed in to get the old ones off but it seems to require a lot of force and I don't want to break it off by forcing it in the wrong direction.

    How does one accomplish this?

    I know what you mean it can be a PITA. Push the tab towards the wiper (push in ) and force the blade down towards the windshield. If anything breaks it will be the blade and not the wiper stem. Good Luck!!
