Question about 1986 Mazda RX-7

1 Answer

Wiper problem, and slight bump under back in

First off, the wiper blades only work on one speed, not slow but the next step up. I think it may be the switch. Second, When I left off the gas it feels like there is something hitting the bottom of the car in the back end. I thought it was the transmission but checked that, not sure now. I can drive it where it doesn't do that but I have to ease off the clutch after switching gears.

My 2003 chevy impala windshield wipers only work


Replace the wiper motor. It is under the wiper blades. remove the blade arms, remove the plastic bezel, remove the motor. The motor has the delay and speeds built in it.

Wind shield wipers not working


First check the fuse box under the hood for a blown or poorly connected fuse. Next, find the wires going to the wiper switch and check for power when you turn the switch on. Finally, if there is power everywhere you checked, go directly to the motor and check it for getting power. Also check the ground wires for this device. If no ground...no action!

I have a 2007 Town and County. The rear wiper is not touching window by about 1/4 inch. I can press it back down but it will not stay once you turn on the wiper. How can I fix this problem?


If it is not touching the glass the arm is bent. Raise the arm away from the glass. Grasp the arm near where it is mounted to the body and near the wiper blade with the other hand. Slightly bend the arm toward the glass. Only bend the arm a very slight amount and check to see if there is enough pressure for the wiper blade to work correctly. Repeat this until the wiper blade cleans the glass properly. DO NOT over bend the wiper arm as too much pressure will cause the blade to wear out very quickly.

Is there a procedure to check the wiper motor on 1991 S10 pickup (only 42000 miles), to be sure it is defective and not a wiring problem?


ONLY PROCEDURE FOR WIPER MOTOR IS YOU HAVE 2 SPEEDS THAT WORK SLOW AND FAST SPEED.WIPERS WILL RETRACT TO THE BOTTOM OF HOOD LINE WHEN YOU TURN OFF. WIPERS SHOULD TURN OFF. CHECK WIPER RESERVOIR MAKE SURE ITS FULL AND WIPER WASHER SPRAY FLUID CLEAN WINDSHIELD. IF WIPER MOTOR DO ALL THE ABOVE THEN ITS OKAY.IF WIPER MOTOR WORKS SLOW LOOK FOR BINDING AT WIPER ARM LINKAGE AND PIVOT LUBRICATE LINKAGE AND PIVOT COULD HELP.IF WIPER MOTOR DONT WORK CHECK FOR POOR GROUND OR BLOWED FUSE.WIPER WORK AT ONE SPEED CONTROL SWITCH IS BAD.IF WIPER BLADES STOP WHERE EVER THEY ARE OR FAIL TO TURN OFF UNLESS YOU TURN OFF IGNITION SWITCH WIPER MOTOR LIMIT SWITCH BROKEN.IF WIPERS DONT RETRACT BELOW BOTTOM HOOD LINE LOOK FOR MECHANICAL OBSTRUCTION OR WIPER MOTOR FAULTY.

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.
