SOURCE: Can a layperson fix the windshield wiper motor(s)

Most people think women can't be handy around the house, this is not true, I think this type of mentality should be abandoned. You can do it. The procedure for this should be similar to other cars with slight variation. The main thing to remember is to put marks before you take them apart, because wipers once missalighned is difficult to figure out. You can use something than will write a thin line on the metal parts. When you put them back together you just align the marks you made. Also take a few notes, or even better yet take photo with your cam phone just in case you forget how they go together. If your cell phone don't have a cam, just take notes. You know most cam phones take pretty good pictures that can be blown up on a computer. Well I hope this is helpfull, and always trust yourself. You can do more than you ever think possible.

SOURCE: Passenger side windshield wiper stopped working.

You will need to take the cowl off and replace all of the bushings. Most auto parts stores will have them in stock.

One windshield wiper not working


Maybe the nut that hold the wiper to the linkage is either loose or stripped? The linkage itself is bad?

I think your wiper motor is fine because the passenger side works and uses the same motor to move the wipers.

Passenger Windshield Wiper Not Working


If it were the motor neither side would move. Chances are its the linkage.
You'll probably need to remove the panel under the windshield to access the linkage and check it out.

2009 Touareg passenger side windshield wiper arm does not move but driver side does


sounds like the connecting rod between both wiper arms either broke or one of the keepers popped off under the connector for that arm..since the wiper system IS NOT designed to wisk snow off the window once accumulated, this can an does happen.. even seen motors get burned out doing this..cleaning the window first will save this issue and the equiptment. need to acess this arm<take off the vented peice below the windshield and everything should be visible there..repost findings

How to replace the wiper motor on a 1994 volkswagon golf


The wiper motor on a Volkswagen is an electric motor connected through a drive linkage to the wiper arms. Windshield wipers are an integral feature for operating a motor vehicle safely. If your wipers are not functioning, or seem to lack the speed or power they used to have, the wiper motor should be removed and replaced immediately
.


Location
  • The wiper motor on a Volkswagen is located directly underneath the plastic cowl cover. The cowl cover is located directly below the windshield.

Removal
  • Begin by removing the wiper arms by prying off the covers at the base of the arms and removing the nuts that secure the arms to the drive shafts. Label the passenger and driver arms so they can be installed in the same positions. They are not interchangeable. Remove the rubber hood to cowl weather seal. Unscrew the plastic fasteners from the driver's side of the cowl cover, then remove this half of the cover. Remove the fasteners from the passenger's side cowl cover and remove this half of the cover. Disconnect the windshield wiper motor wiring harness by separating the plastic wiring connector. Remove the three bolts that secure the wiper motor to the vehicle's body. Pull the motor slightly away from the body, then remove the nut that connects the motor shaft to wiper linkage. Remove the motor.

Installation
  • Place the new wiper motor into position in the cowl and reconnect it to the wiper arm linkage. Then reinstall the three retaining bolts. Reconnect the plastic wiring connector to the wiper motor wiring harness. Place the cowl covers into position below the windshield and reinstall the plastic fasteners that retain them. Reinstall the rubber hood to the cowl weather seal. Reinstall the wiper arms in the same position you removed them from, along with the wiper arm retaining nuts and lower wiper arm covers. Turn the windshield wipers on and test for proper operation. If the wiper blades slap against the bodywork surrounding the windshield, loosen the nuts that connect the wiper arms to the shafts and adjust.

The drivers side windshield wiper arm stopped working although the passenger side wiper is still working. What would be the easiest way to fix it? Should I even bother checking the fuse before the...


65% sure it could the linkage and not a fuse promblem since the other passenger wiper is still working which would have to say the wiper motor is still working, 40 % could be that the linkage is intact and you have a worn out driver side wiper arm bearing..., what you want to check out before the linkage is the gear bearing that holds the wiper arms. You take the rubber thing that cover the bolt on the wiper arm and see if the bolt is loose and if not, unscrew the bolt and see if the tooth gears on the bolt and the wiper arm is worn/dull, if it is.... that can be the promblem.

The windshield wiper driver side does not move. Passenger side does. How do I get to it?


The wiper motor must be directly linked to the passenger side wiper, and the driver side wiper gets its action from the passenger motion. probably the linkage from passenger wiper to the driver side wiper must be the problem. Under the dashboard you can check it, the linkage must be snapped off. (safety first)

2006 hhr passenger side windshield wiper not moving but drivers side is fine??


First remove the complete passenger side wiper check and make sure splines on wiper are not stripped. If this is not the problem It could be a linkage bar from the wiper motor to the wiper off or disconected. Since both wipers share the same motor if one works the other should. Check this by removing both wipers and then "Cawl" (little black piece between the hood and windshield underneath the wipers) Underneath the cawl you should be able to see the windshield wiper motor, and linkage bar to both of the wipers. See if the bar is disconected from the passenger side. If it is than reconnect it. These are the only two possible scenarios.

Passenger windshield wiper does not work, driver side does work. wiper blade frame or wiper motor?


Most likely it is the linkage between the driver and passenger blade arms. The easiest way to find out is to remove the cowling and look...you should see the wiper motor, the motor arm that links to the driver arm and the linkage between the driver arm and passenger arm...this is held together by a plastic clip and that clip is most likely going to be broken when you look...it's fairly easy to replace.
