Is there a little cap covering where it attaches to pivot at base of windshield. If so, pry/flip it up, forward from bottom or end, & you'll probably see a nut to tighten underneath it. Do it when wipers off & in parked position so you can move the arm where you remember it goes, then tighten. Don't reef too ******* it, they aren't that strong and will snap if you go too far with wrench, just real snug. Unless you've stripped spline real good, this should do it.

Windshield wipers stopped working. Windshield wipers are stuck in the up position. Is there a way to get them down until I can get them fixed?


You can either remove the motor, which will let the wiper transmission move freely to the down position. Or remove the wiper arms from the pivots. You do not want to try and force the arms down while the motor is attached as this will just bend the transmission arms and cause you a great head ache.

Drivers windshield wiper not working


Common problem is that the nut holding the arm on has loosened. Right at the pivot point on the arm is a nut underneath a pop off cover. You should be able to take that off. Tap the arm down far enough to grab the post again and tighten the nut. The only thing that would stand in your way is if the arm connection or the post is stripped in which case you will have to replace the wiper arm, the wiper mechanism, or both.

Wiper dodge ram


You must remove the wiper arm to make sure the serrations on both the arm and where it mounts to are not damaged. Turn on the wipers and see if the nub that the wiper arm mounts to is moving.

If it isn't, there is a mechanism called the Wiper Transmission. It is located in the cowl at the bottom of the windshield. The device has a number of arms. The arm that connects the right side to the transmission is off. This is usually the fault of a small round plastic piece at the end of the arm. Simply putting it back on is nit recommended because it will probably fall off again. This plastic piece is attainable at most good auto parts places.

Passenger Side Windshield Wiper Broken


Hi Jill,
The first thing to check is a 13mm nut that holds the wiper arm in place.See if you can move the wiper arm freely back and forth.There is a nut at the base of that wiper arm,Lift up a cover that is hiding the nut. If it comes loose from being froze from ice or snow. Put the wiper in its rest position and tighten the nut back up.

Passenger Windshield Wiper Not Working


If it were the motor neither side would move. Chances are its the linkage.
You'll probably need to remove the panel under the windshield to access the linkage and check it out.

2009 Touareg passenger side windshield wiper arm does not move but driver side does


sounds like the connecting rod between both wiper arms either broke or one of the keepers popped off under the connector for that arm..since the wiper system IS NOT designed to wisk snow off the window once accumulated, this can an does happen.. even seen motors get burned out doing this..cleaning the window first will save this issue and the equiptment. need to acess this arm<take off the vented peice below the windshield and everything should be visible there..repost findings

I'm actually having a couple of problems with my 2002 buick century. The first of which is whenever I am driving my car there is a high pitched spuealing noise coming what seems to be the front passenger...


Good Evening. First off I would like to give you a little advice on your passenger side windshield wiper. On your windshield wipers there is a nut at the base of the arm, try tightening that nut down (of course while your wipers are off) and that should make it work going off the description of your wiper problem. Your Antilock and trac off are lights that are tied into your antilock brake system and will both come on together. Your high pitched squeal could be a few things like brake pads, or a backing plate rubbing. Your hub assembly really won't make a squeal but would be a good reason for the anti lock light to be on. Your best bet is to have the antilock system scanned for codes to know exactly what is making the system to pass a code. Any other questions please feel free to ask. Hope this helps.

One front wiper not working on Outlander 2003


if you open the hood look towards the base of the windshield, you should see the linkages for the wiper arms. make sure the linkages are all in-tact and nothing fell off. if the linkages are all good, see if you can move the passenger side wiper with your hand, if it moves freely or with little resistance check the nut/bolt that hols it on at the end of the wiper arm. see if the nut/bolt is loose. tighten if needed. also you can remove the nut/bolt and check the splines on the wiper arm where it presses onto the stud and see if they are wiped out.
