Question about 1999 Ford Expedition

1 Answer

1999 EB Expedition broken wipers

There was a lot of snow on my windshield and when I turned on the wipers the passenger side worked but the driver side got stuck about 2/3 of the way and now the passenger works ok but the driver stops at 2/3 and the passenger runs into it. Also, if I move the driver side wiper with my hands, I can pull it out way over the side of the car. What is wrong with the wipers?

Take the cap off the bottom of the wiper with a screw driver and in most cases the nut under the cap is loose take it to auto zone or napa and ask them to take a quick look for you because they install wipers for free

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.

You will need to find where in the linkage the problem is. I would start taking it apart to see what is and what isn't working correctly. Autozone website has free repair manuals available online.

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

Wiper issue


wiper arm bolt needs to be tighened, or more common the arm needs to be replaced. where the bolt is the end arm insert is made of soft led as to strip out if arm becomes binded by snow, tree branch etc so the more expentise linkage or wiper trasmisson, or motor do not become damaged.

Remove the wiper arm and check the serrated hub to see if it sheared a pin holding it to the shaft. If it is ok, then you may have a broken/loose part in the linkage. Good luck!

Windshield wiper


Check to see if the wiper motor moves the passenger side. If so, You may need to tighten the nut that connects the arm to the motor. Mine was stripped out because or snow & ice. So, I went to home depot and found a lock washer to fit.
Presto.... Nick from DE
