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

How do i get the vent off to replace my ford aspire windshield wiper linkage bushing


Most of them have a few small screws almost hidden in the fins of the vents. The ones over the wiper motor are 'fake' vents that look like the rest, but between the fins is solid plastic. Look really closely between each vent and you will most likely find the screws.

My wipers slipped off track of the motor, how do i fix this


That makes no sense

There is only 1 nut holding the wiper linkage
onto the wiper arm.

If you mean someone put the wiper arms on in the
wrong place,remove them & install where they should
be, when the motor is off & in the home pssition.

If you have to get to the linkage, remove the screws for
the metal & plastic vent to cowl grilles

I have one wiper that does not work the other stops in the middle of the windshield how can i fix them


The motor could be bad, but it's likely that the ball joint connections under the hood area under the cowl have become disconnected for the one windshield wiper arm.

The connection of the arm that moves should be checked for being at the correct angle for parking.

The wiper cam actuator the cam is made to prevent damage to the motor by using a spring to allow it to slip if the wipers are stuck or frozen to the wind shield the spring stretching causes the wipers to stop in the middle of the window not hard to replace but does require you to do a timing procedure it should come in the box if not ill give you the basics get the new part remove both wiper arms careful the windshield is under the black plastic and I've seen other break the windshield taking the wiper arms off a battery post puller is the best way to remove , remove the cowl plastic piece you will see the cam gold/silver in color remove the one torx head screw then install new one rotate clockwise 2 times should spin freely then spin counter clockwise should stop look at where it is touching this area should have a 4mm gap the wiper motor has to be in the intermittent position prior to this turn key on put wipers in intermittent let motor spin then when it stops shut the key off then install cam.
