Good feedback!

This procedure is simple, and should be easy for anyone who has even minor wrench-turning experience and a torque wrench. The only difficulty I encountered was removing the wiper arms. No amount of wiggling is going to get mine loose. However, it is not a necessity--the cowl cover can be slid up over the arms and out of the way while the arms are in a nearly vertical position. If I do the procedure again, I will be sure to have a puller on hand.
