2007 PT rear wiper adjustment

Can you adjust or replace the spring in the wiper blade? Chrysler says I have to buy the whole mechanism. The top of the blade is bot making contact with the glass.

    I do not know how to remove the blade to replace it. Nothing I've done thus far seems to work and I have replaced plenty of wiper blades in the past

I had a simular problem with my 07. All I did was use a can of WD-40 & spray some at the joint area, near the bottom of the spring. You need to work it in for a while to remove any road **** that got in there over the year and try this, it worked for me. Good luck. Mack

Do Toyota blades have many mechanical problems


No. They are the best replacement for wipers due to they are made by Toyota for Toyota's, and most factory wipers the inserts can be replaced instead of the whole blade.

Three things you can replace depend on your budet
1) you can replace whole wiper blabe assembly by lift up the cover at the bottom end of the bale assembly and un-screw the nut and raplace whole assembly with arm , wiper insert etc ... with the new one This way cost you more.
2) on hte middle of the whole wiper blade assy has the flexible section, you can un-screw 2 small philipe pan head screw with screw driver and disconnect the top section with the wiper blade insert (rubber)
3) slide wiper blade insert out of the holder, becareful with 2 small steel blade will hole your rubber insert inside the wiper frame. Slide new rubber insert in the frame .

I need instuctions to replace the rear wiper blade on a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee.


Take it to any parts store and they will do it for you for free, there are three types, the rocker type which you have to raise the wiper arm away from the glass then pull the tab up then slide the wiper down and slide the wiper off the wiper arm. but the best thing is have someone show you how to do it for the first time sometimes they can be tough to get off.

1999 Acura TL - WIPER BLADES HIT HARD ON BOTH SIDES, IS THERE AN ADJUSTMENT OR JUST REPLACE THE WIPER MOTOR


I had this same problem. The wiper blades would extend too far and hit the edge of the car, or they wouldn't extend far enough and only wipe about 3/4 of the windshield. The problem was a broken Wiper Rod A. My local mechanic replaced it - the part was about $20 and the labor about $230. Have them look at wiper rod A

Broken rear windshield wiper


advance auto stores replace wiper blades for free if you buy it from them.If the wiper arm needs to be replaced it has a nut at the bottom of it under a plastic cover.It bolts onto a shaft with splines on it so after replacing it turn it on and check it.You may have to loosen the nut and move to adjust it to get it in the correct position.

Rear wiper blade


If you still have your '08 Cruiser, I just changed mine (I'm also a Mom)...You have to pop off the plastic cap on the base of the wiper where it attaches to the window, then with a small wrench, take off the hex nut. Work the wiper arm off the spindle, then replace like the front wipers...push old wiper hook up, pull thru, and replace blades per instructions in the blade package...Pat
