Try replacing the fuse for the windshield wipers that may fix your problem.

    You need a new switch. You can get on ebay and have someone put it in, or if you are mechanically inclined do it yourself.

My wipers slam against the sides of the windshield,


First make sure you have the correct length wiper blades on the arms.If they are correct it sounds like someone has had the arms off and replaced them one tooth too far. Remove the arms and move them one at a time. Carefully note the position when you remove them and replace each one by moving the arm one tooth toward the center of the car.

Windshield wiper arms move all ove rthe windshield incosistently


turn your wipers on and turn the key off when the are about 1/4 to half way up on the winshield and try to pull them one way or the other and see if they move
It really sounds like the wiper transmission arm has gotten stripped the only to fix it is to replace trasmission arm assembly you can get them from your local junk yard cheap!
generally where wiper arms push on there is an additiona part you will have to pull off in order to change the wiper arm assembly

Sounds like the wiper arm has become disconnected. There may be a clip or bushing that has broken or fallen off. The wiper motor/arms etc are accessible by taking the cover off (usually plastic and possibly held in by screws or large plastic slots) that's at the base of the windshield. You may have to lift the hood for access and removal. Just take your time and don't force anything.

It's really simple after that. You turn your motor on and look for moving parts, that'll be the wiper motor. Either it's disconnected at the motor or it be disconnected on the arm. Usually one arm will move both wipers. If you're lucky, maybe it's just fallen off and you can find the clip or bushing and re-attach it. Otherwise, you may have to get a new part, which in this case would probably come from the dealer.

You may possibly also get it from a junkyard, but chances are if it's a small part, then they may not sell it to you. However some junk yards WILL sell you these small parts, and others may even let you pull the part yourself. If you could do this, you could also see how the part properly attaches.

If it's confusing how to re-attach the parts, then you may have to buy a Haynes or Chilton manual to see exactly how everything looks. Diagrams would be great. If there's no good pix in the manual, then try online. The best would be to see fully functional operating wipers on a similar car. Maybe find a buddy to take a peek at his after you practice on yours.

The part if broken should fit multiple years of your make of car.

Get this fixed soon because not only will it not pass inspection, but it is highly unsafe.
