Question about 1996 Honda Accord
Plastic cap came off of ball on bottom side of linkage looks to be worn and sloppy.
I had this problem for my 1997 HONDA ACCORD
MAKE SURE IT IS NOT THE MOTOR
to do this turn on the windshiled wipers. if you hear the motor, it is fine.
SECURE THE PART
you cannot buy the plastic part which is called the bushing. technically it is called the wiper linkage bushing. (well you can buy the bushing, but usually from a place like autozone and they dont sell it for our car. ) so you have to buy the part from honda, and you have to buy the whole arm, called the wiper linkage. (you have two of them, an A and a B. A is on top, B is on the bottom)
TAKE DOWN THE COWL
that is the plastic part over the motor and the wiper linkages
REMOVE OLD WIPER LINKAGE
APPLY NEW LINKAGE --BUT LUBE UP SURFACE VERY WELL,, b/c it will be too tight.
SET WIPER to ZERO to make sure it wipes the way it needs to.
hope this helps. BUT if it doesn't HONDA can put it on fro about 45 minutes if you take down everything, and all they have to do is put on the arm and put back on the wipers!
