It's called a wiper transmission. If it is stripped, you are going to have to replace it. But, usually if you take the metal grate off underneath the wipers, you will find that the plastic grommets that hook to the wiper arms and motor are bad. you can buy them at a parts store. You have to press them in, make sure you pay attention which way the grommets face.

Wiper linkage and pivot assy bad? 2 left shafts rotate under power, but far right shaft does not (turns hard by hand)

You have power so electric is ok..Sounds like you have stripped wiper arm connections/post and/or wiper motor gear...or possibly bent operating assembly,,,first remove the arms from the post.they should have a small locking device just under the arm at the bottom..move it out and the arm can be released and removed..once both are off check for stripping on arm and wiper if not stripped turn the wipers on see if they operate..if they do shut them off and let them come to a normal stop...then reapply the blades in the normal operating positions and turn on,,adust if needed..if not check for bent and binding of the rods..It not the motor gear or motor will need to be replaced..If you are mechanically inclined it is nit that hard of a job..there are good videos on UTUBE just ask how to replace wiper motor for you vehicle.Good luck..

My driver's side wiper blade has stopped working.

The nut that holds it to the wiper pivot is either loose or the pivot is stripped, try tightening the nut first.

Where is windshield wiper motor for 1992 mercury grand marquis

1992-98 Vehicles
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the rear hood seal. Remove the wiper arm assemblies by raising the wiper blade off the windshield. Move the slide latch away from the pivot shaft and slowly lower the arm onto the latch. This unlocks the arm from the pivot shaft and holds the blade off the glass. Pull the arm from the pivot shaft.
  3. Remove the cowl vent screws and disconnect the washer hoses from the washer jets.
  4. Detach the electrical connectors from the wiper motor.
  5. Remove the wiper assembly attaching screws, lift the assembly out and disconnect the washer hose.
  6. Unsnap and remove the linkage cover.
  7. Remove the wiper module assembly retaining bolts and remove the module from the vehicle.
  8. Remove the linkage retaining clip from the motor operating arm by lifting the locking tab and pulling the clip away from the pin.
  9. Remove the motor retaining screws and remove the motor from the vehicle.
  10. The installation is the reverse of the removal.

Replacing front wiper blades

If they're standard Chrysler (and they should be), feel the underside of the blade at the pivot. Inward, there's a plastic that down and slide the wiper blade toward the base of the arm (inward). Pretty much, the wiper arm terminates in a hook. When you press down on that plastic strip, you free a small peg from a hole that holds the wiper on that hook...then you just slide it off. To put the new one on, just slide the new blade on that same hook until it locks into place.

Passenger side wiper blade not moving when you turn the wipers on.

It sounds like the slave link that connects the driver side pivot to the passenger side pivot needs to be replaced. This link, along with the master link, which connects the motor output crank to the driver side pivot, is located in the wiper module. You'll have to remove the wiper module from the car in order to service.

Need to replace driver side wiper do not know how to get it off

I believe the blade is the same as my F-250, according to the manual. Pull the wiper away from the windshield, then push on either end of the blade, follow blade to pivot point at center, where blade pivots back and forth on wiper arm (wiper arm will not be moving as you do this). You need to push towards the windshield at this pivot point to push in on the wiper arm and out on the blade assembly to pop the round end of the wiper arm out of the hole in the blade assembly. Look at the new blade to see where this attaches. The new one should snap on to the arm when u squeeze the wiper arm to the blade. I prefer Exact Fit brand, as they seem to fit well. If u purchase at autozone, or advanced auto parts, they will install them for free.

Replacing rear wiper blade

I purchased a Trico "Exact Fit" #12-A rear wiper blade at Advance Auto Parts for my 2006 RAV4. The directions are very clear. It took about 3 minutes. The key is to open the plastic cover at the bottom joint of the blade by spreading the both sides with your index fingers and pulling straight out. This opens the cover and allows you to bring the blade to a 90 degree angle.
