Question about 1990 Dodge Dakota
My wipers stop working so i pulled the vent grill and found the plastic bushings rutted away. i found replacements for it but for the life of me cant get them installed. i can get them close but they wont stay on. how do i fix this????
I had the same problem and here is what I did. First remove the wiper arm from the motor using a 7/16 wrench. Once the arm is off remove the old bushing ( mine fell off completely). Next I moved the washer arm so it sticks out of the vent cover. Get the new bushing and line it up to the arm. I then put a socket ( I used 11/16)on the back of the arm and used a c clamp to push the bushing into the slotted hole. Back the clamp off and line up the drive arm with the hole in the bushing and retighten the clamp. Apply pressure until it seats completely.Once done you can replace arm to the motor. Test wipers to see if the bushing is going to stay seated. You are now ready to replace vent cover and cowl.
p.s. I have pictures that need to be resized before I can post
