Windshield wiper linkage


This is a bit of an awkward one on that car, but you have to remove the wiper arms, then remove the retaining nuts on the spindles, the wiper motor and get to the inner wiper control arms. There's a chance that one of the nylon cups which connect the control/drive arms has popped off and simply needs to be reconnected.

Passenger and driver windshield wipers won't work. i can hear the motor running. i tried to use the wipers to clear off a bunch of snow. it started to go but then stopped. i cleared the rest of the snow by...


see if the transmission arms for the wiper motor are moving when the wiper motor is on. The bolts that hold the arms to the motor may be loose or stripped out from the heavy know. The threads for these bolts are thin and don't take much to strip.

Windshield wiper linkage ball joint white knuckle cap is broken


This is a DIY fix for a dollar. The white plastic caps that join the wiper arms together in the wiper assembly commonly wear and break under normal use. 1984 - 1986 Honda CRX and Civics also used these plastic caps for a short time - much to my dismay. In my 2000 Subaru Legacy and Subaru Forester (should work on 2001, 2002, 2003, and 2004 models as well), there is an easy DIY solution that will take care of the excessive play in the wiper travel, as well as the common 'wiper clunk'.
Head over to your local auto parts store an purchase a PCV Valve grommet for a Toyota. Part number 42058. These are only a dollar, and are normally stocked on the shelf. If you put the phrase 'pcv valve 42058' into to Google Image Search you will see what I mean. I’m attaching a picture as well.
For installation, gain access to the wiper assembly, I recommend removing the entire assembly (arms and motor) from below the black trim piece under the windshield. Inspect all the joints. If you have a loose joint, remove the white plastic cap and the arm from the ball joint. Slide the PCV Valve Grommet over the ball joint and press the arm into the grommet. This is now a perfect, snug fit. Wiper blades slamming into the car is a thing of the past.

Front windshield wipers stall or work very intermittantly when on


It is likely that where the wiper arm is attached to the linkage  it is either loose or stripped.

Subaru forester 1999. After heavy snow my wipers are not working.  I can hear the motor for the wipers.  how to reconnect the wipers arms


If you can hear the wiper motor now, that means it was over worked and it partially burned up the motor. There's also a good chance that the wiper linkage has been bent due to the motor trying to push the weight of the snow. I would definitely take it to a shop and have them look at it. I'm just worried about that one bad down pour of rain that would come down while your driving then all of a sudden your wiper motor gives out right in the middle of traffic. I hope this info helps.

2001 subaru forester rear wiper motor replacement


Hi, it is pretty straightfoward (ahem, you know how this can go. depends on whether your wiper arm retaining bolt is frozen and snaps off the shaft or not). First, take a look at your fuse to make sure it is intact. If it is, just gently pop off all of the plastic trim covering the tailgate, and undo screws too as necessary. Then test the connector wires to be sure you are still getting power back there to the motor, I used a $4 test light that I got from AutoZone. Then use a large philips head screwdriver and 10mm socket to remove the whole dang thing.
