SOURCE: Windsheild wiper park position in Saturn 2000 LS1

I had the same problem in my LW200. As the other poster indicated a new wiper motor will do the trick. This is an easy fix. Remove the wiper arms, pry up the plastic center cap and remove the nuts holding the arms down then pull them off. A soft prying nudge from underneath will help as they are splined shafts. Raise the hood, put a large deep well socket on over the splined shafts and remove the 2 large nuts holding the trim panel on. Pull up and off the long rubber which runs along the front of the trim panel, watch there is a sharp edge underneath. Now you can gently pull off the trim panel, remembering to lift it over the splined shafts. Mechanism is right there, remove 3 screws and unplug wiring. Take wiper motor off the linkage swap with a new one at advance auto, about 100 bucks, reinstall in reverse order. Note there is a stamping on the linkage telling you where the pivot arm should be for the rest or stopped position and if you ignore that your wipers will be out of whack. While you are in there you may want to change the cabin air filter as well.

SOURCE: windshield wipers

You will need to replace the wiper motor. Most likely the circuit board is bad. You might check with your local chevy dealer and see if there is a recall on the wiper motor before you buy a new one, even if you are not the original owner the car the recall will still be done free of charge. Some chevy models did have a wiper recall. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: how to change lexus es300 2002 cabin air filter

I just changed the cabin filter of my ES300. I found the instructions on the manual, under airconditioning and audio. It's pretty easy to do. I bought the filter from Kragen's for $21.95.

SOURCE: wipers willnot return to park position

I've fixed this problem before. You have to disconnect the wiper transmission from the wiper motor. Put wipers in off position, unbolt the plate on top of wiper, turn wipers on then off. In the off position see where the wiper transmission is position in relation to where the park position is, remove the top plate from wiper motor and position it so as to be able to reconnect the wiper transmission now in the proper place. Please keep me informed. thanks you

2 ways of dealing with this. Install a new motor or put up with it until you install a new motor. I usually give it a very light tap with a hammer or a wrench & they start working fine at least for a while

Intermittent wiper stops in middle of windshield when in use


If the wipers self-park in the other settings and after use of the screenwashers the fault is probably in the intermittent timer relay or circuitry.

If the self park is not working in the other settings the fault is probably the self-park switch within the wiper motor.

Nissan200sx Wipers pivot arm falls off every 2nd time I use the wipers, I've tightend the end hoping it'll be less likely to fall off, but it still does. It also seems that my wipers are out of...


Hi Orangie, It sounds to me as if there is a problem with the threads on the shaft or the nut holding the arm! Try to replace the nut with a self locking type. (Those are the type which have a plastic insert at the bottom or the top) It sounds as if the arm has been placed in the wrong position when you have reattached it on previous occasions. The wiper motor shaft has splines so when attaching the arm set it so that the self park mechanism is synced for the off to have the wiper blades down. If the shaft of the motor has been damaged you may need to replace the wiper motor. If you do, take a walk around some braekers yards and have a look for a good second hand unit. that may save you a lot of cash! Regards John

How do I replace the windshield wipers?


They slide off the the wiper arm like any standard wiper blade. Go to a store that sells wipers blades, instructions are on the back of the box. Do it your self...the dealer will charge you 40 bucks at least! (Lexus dealer)
