Wiper Blade won't move

I have a wiper blade on my driver's side that won't move anymore, my step-dad use to tighten it all the time when it would stop working, now it's not moving at all no matter how hard I try to tighten it.

Sounds like you have worn the teeth off of either the wiper arm itself or where it attaches to the motor. Take off the bolt and remove the arm so that you can look inside of it to see which part is worn. If it is the wiper arm itself, then just call a junkyard close to you and get a used one to put on. If you have worn the teeth off of the motor, then you can get that also at the junkyard, but it will be more difficult to install than just the wiper arm. Hope this helps, and if you need more information then please let me know and I will be glad to help you. I hope it is just the arm, that will be an easy fix after finding the part :)

Thanks!

I need to have 'step-by-step' instructions for replacing the driver side windshield wiper arm on my 2000 Ford Explorer. Can you help me with this?


  • Turn your wipers off, using the stalk on the left side of your steering column. Turn your ignition off and remove the key.

  • 2

    Pull the wiper blade up to lift it to the service position. Pull the front part of the blade down to position it at an angle.

  • 3

    Pull back the lock pin on the center part of the wiper blade (where it connects to the wiper arm). This unlocks the blade from the wiper arm.

  • 4

    Grasp the blade on each side and pull it down (away from the extended wiper arm) to release it from the "U" clip.

  • 5

    Repeat the process for the other wiper blade, if desired. Removing the driver's side and passenger's side wiper blade is the same.

  • 6

    Install the new wiper blade. Open the lock pin on the new blade, and then insert it into the wiper arm "U" clip. Close the lock pin and lower the wiper blade to its normal position.

    there is a black cap on the bottom of the windshield wiper where it pivots. Take a flat screwdriver and pop the cap off. there is a small nut. Tighten it up. Snap the cap back on. ( Make sure your wiper is in the correct position before you tighten the nut.

    Drivers side windshield wiper not moving


    The bolt that holds the wiper on is loose. There is a little plastic cap at the other end of the wiper arm, the side away from the wiper blade. Remove the cap and tighten the bolt. That should get it going again.

    How to Replace Wiper Blades Guide (Typical):
    Potential tools needed to replace wiper blades:
    • Flat blade screwdriver (small)
    • Small nosed pliers
    • Latex or vinyl gloves
    • Safety goggles
    To replace wiper blades theactual action of replacing the blade is no big deal, it's the locationof the blade down below the hood that can make it difficult though.Sometimes it helps to open the hood to gain access to the wiper blades.Other times it is helpful if the wiper blade is somewhere in the motionline of wiper action. The trick is to get the wiper to stop somewherein the wiper arc. Turn the wipers to the on position and allow thewipers to start, and then shut the key off when the wiper has arrivedin a desirable position on the windshield. To replace your wiper bladesplease follow the step by step instruction below. Also, watch the How to replace wiper blades video below to gain additional information. The method in which the wiper blades are attached will vary slightly.
    • Step 1: With the hood closed, turn the wiperson, when the wipers are in the middle of their arc turn the key to theoff position. (Note: if this can't be done because of wiper conditionand you want to avoid scratching the windshield please open your hoodto gain access)
    • Step 2: Locate the mounting clips at the top pivot on the wiper blade
    • Step 3: Release the clip and remove the wiper arm
    • Step 4: Match the size of the old blade against the new blade to ensure proper fit and operation
    • Step 5: Reinstall the new wiper blade and recheck wiper operation

    Common Problems:
    • Make sure the wiper blades are the same size as the original blades.
    • When replacing wiper blades not getting the blade onthe mounting pin completely allowing the wiper arm to become dislodgedand possibly causing damage to the windshield.
    • Using wiper blades after the blade has failed permanently damaging the windshield by craving scratches in the wiper arc.
    • Wiper blade can create a chattering noise when theblade is not properly balanced allowing the blade to "flop" back andforth as the wiper direction changes.

    I hope help you with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.
