Got this from Buckley77.

Instead of reading 6 pages of notes from impalahq, Buckley made a compressed version that works perfect. Thought this could be a sticky. If you want Buckley to provide this for credit, go for it.

All you need is a flathead screwdriver.

All I needed to do was get the wiper blades up onto the winshield and turn the car off bafore they went back to the resting position.

pop the hood

pull back the weather stripping behind the engine about halfway

pop out the washer fluid hose and place it out of the way

Then go up to the plastic cowl where the wiper blades (usually) are on the passenger side and carefully pry out the 2 compression pins and pull out the sleeve. Also unscrew the 1 screw cap on the cowl

then just pull the plastic cowl up off the winshield and POW there is the filter

Damn! I will change mines this weekend. Mines is probably worse than both of your filters since I haven't changed it in two years.

Honestly you dont need pics. Yes it would help but I sent step by step from what buckley wrote and was right on. Id rather read Buckleys that 6 pages from the hq.
