I order the outside dew wipers from the Fiero Store and they came in today. They did not include any instructions with them. So could some one tell me what I need to do, to install them? Any help given would be appreciated.

I have done both of my doors. No need to take the skins off. Used Rodneys tool and it worked.

I didn't have rodney tool but I took a regular bit, gut about 1/4" off it and used a closed end ratchet wrench, worked good.

Your experience with Rodney's tool will be greatly enhanced if you relieve the pressure of the glass on the dew wipes. There are two, (I believe 10mm) bolts on the top of the door that do that. The bolts will be obvious after you remove the inside door panels.

There are other methods to replace the dew wipes but I have used Rodney's tool on two cars and found it to be not that difficult.

Also I did not replace the two difficult screws. The dew wipe is still held in place securely and next time I replace them it will be a LOT easier.

If you find my advice useful, then please give me a positive rating, thanks...

Goto www.fieronews.com and then go to articles on the right side click on it, then goto how 2s in the center of the screen and click on it, and read that article on installing dew wipes. This is the easiest way I found replacinig them and you dont need any special tools. Hope this helps.
