Question about 1999 Chevrolet Suburban
Wiper arms is stucked to the axel even after i have pulled out the lock's (metal plate positioned under wiper axel fitting), as far as they go. Have sprayed 505 for lubrication, but still stuck.
Should i completly remove the lock's or what?
Arm's still stuck, but the reason for this request was that my wipers didn't stop in correct position. They stopped in different positions and people advised me to replace all of it.
Insted i wanted to see if I could repair it.
I concluded that this was an electronic problem, not a mechanic.
I dissconected the battery cable's and the electrical cable to the wiperarm engine.Then I opened the lid on the bracket for the wiper-arm motor and pulled out the electrical curcuit board. Cleaned inside and sprayed with elektrospray for better contact on the electronic's. Also carefully sanded the contact's for the mechanic and applied new grease for the mechanic's.
This was all possible still with all mounted in the engine room of the car.
Now it work's properly.
Thank's for the e-mail, I will use this site when next problem appears.

Turn your wipers off, using the stalk on the left side of your steering column. Turn your ignition off and remove the key.
Pull the wiper blade up to lift it to the service position. Pull the front part of the blade down to position it at an angle.
Pull back the lock pin on the center part of the wiper blade (where it connects to the wiper arm). This unlocks the blade from the wiper arm.
Grasp the blade on each side and pull it down (away from the extended wiper arm) to release it from the "U" clip.
Repeat the process for the other wiper blade, if desired. Removing the driver's side and passenger's side wiper blade is the same.
Install the new wiper blade. Open the lock pin on the new blade, and then insert it into the wiper arm "U" clip. Close the lock pin and lower the wiper blade to its normal position.
