Question about 1996 Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

Wiper Linkage I need to know how to replace the wiper linkage to the wiper motor on a 1996 Nissan Pathfinder. When i turn on the wipers i can hear the motor running, along with a rythmic thudding sound like something is banging against something else inside the cowl. Also if anyone could tell me where i could find the parts for this that would be greatly appreciated because i have been having a tough time of it.

Volvo windshield wipers don't work


From the wiper motor, the wiper linkage attaches to both wiper arms. If one side is working, then that indicates that your motor is working, and the linkage to at least 1 wiper arm is working.

What's left? The linkage to the other arm, and the connection of the arm to the pivot shaft assembly. Let's find out:

1. Remove the inoperative wiper arm. You will expose the shaft that the wiper arm attaches to. It will have a head on it that looks like a small peanut butter cup, with shallow ridges or splines all the way around it. This can be formed on the end of the shaft, or it can be a separate piece that is removable. If you don't see it, it may have come off with the wiper arm, so look for it to be still embedded in the wiper arm hole. Once you find it, how do those splines look? Are they stripped? If so, they may be rotating within the arm instead of rotating the arm itself.

2. Run the wipers again. Is the shaft rotating? If it is, then the arm and/or splines were the problem, and you need to replace withever component had the stripped splines, whether the arm or that p-nut butter cup splined part. (Or both, if you want to be extra safe and not have to mess with it again for a while.) If you're lucky, it'll be a separate piece that you can replace easily. If not, it'll be formed as part of the wiper linkage, and you'll have to replace the whole linkage. If it's just the arm that's stripped, replace the arm. Easy.

3. If the shaft does NOT rotate with the arm removed, then the linkage is broken, usually at the connection where the wiper shaft connects to the long arm that hooks both wiper shafts together. The bushings are often plastic, and they wear out. If it's plastic, you can get a replacement at the dealer, which will be nice, new plastic to last however long this one did. But if the linkage is metal all the way along, you'll have to do more work than with the easily replaceable plastic connection.

3b. To gain access to the linkage on most vehicles, remove both wiper arms. Next, remove the (usually) black plastic vented piece under & around the wiper shafts. This should allow access to the wiper linkage.

For those who who have neither wiper working and were hoping this would cover it, you're in luck. If neither wiper is working, here's how to test the system:

1. Turn the key to ON.
2. Turn on the wipers.
3. Listen for the sound of the wiper motor. LIsten in the cab, but also in the engine compartment as well. If you hear it but have no wiper movement, your motor is fine and the linkage is the issue.
3b. If you do not hear any motor sounds in the cab or the engine comartment, it's either the motor or the switch (I assume you've checked the fuse already).
4. Check the wiper motor: Does it have a connector for the wires, or just one wire. If it has one wire, remove that wire and check it for voltage with a multi-meter or test-light. If you have a connector, you'll need to know what wire is which. Maybe. Most of the time, the motor is grounded thru the body, so if you remove the bolts and move the motor away from the body, you can check for voltage between the motor and body.
5. If you have no voltage, then it's the switch or wiring, or possibly the resistor, if equipped. If you DO have voltage at the motor, but no motor movement, the motor is bad and must be replaced.

I have a 1996 honda accord and my wipers will not work how do i know if its the wiper motor or not?


To check the fuse is always a good start. But also ,with the engine not running and the Key in the on position, turn the wipers on and listen for the wiper moter. You may hear the wiper motor running but the wipers not working ,they could have come disconnected at the motor or in the linkage. Physically move the wipers, if they move freely with no resistants, that would indicate a disconnection in the linkage or at the motor, in my opinion.

My toyota celica 1996 rear wiper does not working but i can hear a motor moving what is is up with it


The wiper arm linkage may have broken or become disconnected somehow. Access the wiper motor inside the vehicle be removing the trim panel. Once the motor and linkage is exposed, turn on the wiper so you can watch what's going on. You should be able to see where the disconnect is.

Good Luck!

Need to know how to install the RH wiper linkage in a Nissan 200SX. I know how to remove the wiper arms and plastic cover below the windshield. Just need to know how to install the linkage with out...


The wiper cam actuator the cam is made to prevent damage to the motor by using a spring to allow it to slip if the wipers are stuck or frozen to the wind shield the spring stretching causes the wipers to stop in the middle of the window not hard to replace but does require you to do a timing procedure it should come in the box if not ill give you the basics get the new part remove both wiper arms careful the windshield is under the black plastic and I've seen other break the windshield taking the wiper arms off a battery post puller is the best way to remove , remove the cowl plastic piece you will see the cam gold/silver in color remove the one torx head screw then install new one rotate clockwise 2 times should spin freely then spin counter clockwise should stop look at where it is touching this area should have a 4mm gap the wiper motor has to be in the intermittent position prior to this turn key on put wipers in intermittent let motor spin then when it stops shut the key off then install cam.

The cowl panel has to be removed. You will find plastic clips and possibly a few screws holding the panel on. Once you remove the panel you will see the wiper linkage and motor.

Windshield wipers stopped working on 1998 Nissan Sentra. Is it a fuse problem? If so, where is fuse box and which fuse? Is it a motor problem? is this an easy diy fix?


Water can enter and displace the grease in the wiper arm linkage ball joint where the wiper linkage attaches to the wiper motor linkage.

This can result in gradual wear over a period of time inside the joint that could lead to the separation of the wiper linkage assembly from the wiper motor linkage at the ball joint. A loss of windshield wiper function can result when this separation occurs.

To prevent grease from being washed out of the joint, the dealers will modify by adding a water diversion seal that will prevent water from entering the windshield wiper linkage ball joint area.

Most likely you will have to replace the wiper linkage from the center pivot to the left or drivers-side wiper pivot. The plastic piece in the linkage gets brittle over time and breaks down. To save a hassle in the future, replace both linkages. It should be under $20.00 for parts.
