slipstream replacement

I bought a new slipstream to replace a damaged one on my 2004 LT.
The Clymer doesn't show/explain how to get to it.
Must I take off the entire tupperware to get to this?
Thanks...

If you are talking about a windshield all you need to do is pop off the plastic chrome covers by grabbing each with two hands and rotate them inward. Then remove two screws on each arm. Be warned you'll probably break the plastic clips that hold them in place... easy to do. Make sure you don't over-tighten the screws and re-use the tiny "half moon" rubber pads. This job is much easier to do if you can get someone to hold the windshield while you snug it up so the clamping forces are evenly distributed.
