According to AllData, you don't have to remove the motor to install a new switch. Subsequently, AllData doesn't give direction on wiper arm or motor removal. Here are the only diagrams they give for switch replacement.

Replace rear wiper assembly


The wiper arm has a cover on the left end that pops up after gently spreading the two bottom sides apart. That allows the arm to swing out for cleaning the window or replacing the blade.
The wiper blade assembly attaches to the end of the arm . It is pressed in and will pop out with a little force rotating the left side away from the arm. It pops back in with a little push. The arm remains attached to the rotating shaft assembly.
I believe you can then replace just the rubber blade and not the whole blade assembly, if that is your fancy.

What tools do i need to replace windshield wiper motor and where is the location on a 2000 gran prix


You'll need a socket and ratchet set. Being Pontiac, probably metric(12 or 13 mm). Go to the auto parts store and get the new motor. Now open the hood, and look all the way in the back of the engine to the firewall, around the drivers side. Just undo the bolts with the ratchet and socket. pop loose the control arm and undo the wiring. To replace, take the new motor, hook to the arm, bolt into place, attach the wires, and your in business. About 30 minutes to do for a beginner.

!998 taurus windshield wiper on the drivers side moves but is out of cink with the passenger side and can hold it still when passenger side is running. something with mechanism.


Your wiper transmission is bad or disconnected. The part with the arms that are moving under the windshield cowling is called a wiper transmission. The main connection to these arms is a pin on the wiper motor which has a clip. The cowling is the area directly under the windshield. You may be able to unscrew the cowling and remove it to access the shaft arms on the wiper transmission.

You may need to remove the wiper motor to get at the clip on the motor. Then each arm is mounted to the base of the cowling. These are the stubs which the wiper arms attach to. Usually the shaft arms are a permanent part of the piece which fits over the motor. But is worth a look at what broke to see how it used to be attached.

If the transmission arms were in a pressed-on fitting, you will either have to replace it or improvise a new connection. The connection will have to be secure, yet not drag on the wiper, and not make noise. That kinda makes a new part or Salvage yard part your options.

By going to a Salvage yard first, you will learn how the part comes off. Gather extra screws for the ones you may drop reinstalling the part. And if you break something on the Salvage car, you will know better when you work on yours.

I hope you found this solution helpful.

Drivers side wiper not moving;but the other is


The wiper motor has a wiper transmission attaching to it. At the other end of the transmission the wiper arms are pressed in and locked in place. The teeth that hold the arm in place is stripped out. You will need a new wiper transmission.

Wiperarm disconnected


The arm presses into the transmission wiper link which is attatched to the wiper motor. If that part broke off and its in the wiper arm socket you need a new wiper transmission assembly. If the tud is still attached to the wiper transmission and the arm just plain came off there is a tab that pushes inward to lock it in place to the wiper transmission when fully pressed into place
