Make sure the wipers are in the parked position - fully at the bottom of their travel. Haynes guide says to then put a wrench on the motor drive crank and a wrench on the bolt to get the bolt off

Driver's side wiper not working


The wiper arms are attached to the wiper motor by clips. If the drivers side clip came undone then the wiper arm could possibly fall off the motor. Some wiper arms are attached as a duet with 1 clip. In this case the arm broke off the mounting plate and the entire assembly needs to be changed.

These parts, for some reason, are called wiper transmissions. You can web search the part by that name on the internet. You will probably find good photos to show how they are made. You may just need to replace the clip which also can be researched on the internet.

How do you remove the rear wiper arm on a 2008 town & country


1. Remove the cap by inserting a flathead screwdriver on the side of the wiper arm to pop it off
2. Remove the nut holding the arm to the motor shaft
3. Now for the hard part, put the flathead screwdriver between the wiper arm and the base of the motor shaft. You should be able to wedge it in there so that you can put slight pressure on the bottom of the wiper arm and the base of the motor. Now wiggle the wiper arm and pull up while you turn the flathead screwdriver to help pop it off. Just keep wiggling and turning the screwdriver to pop the arm off.
4. Once the arm is off it should be obvious why it was so hard to get it off. There are threads on the motor shaft that tap wiper arm when you crank the nut down on the arm. That's why it doesn't just fall off when you take the nut off.
5.. Put the nut on tightly so that it creates the new threads on the new wiper arm.
6. Test it.
7. Put the cap back on.

Passenger windshield wiper does not work, driver side does work. wiper blade frame or wiper motor?


Most likely it is the linkage between the driver and passenger blade arms. The easiest way to find out is to remove the cowling and look...you should see the wiper motor, the motor arm that links to the driver arm and the linkage between the driver arm and passenger arm...this is held together by a plastic clip and that clip is most likely going to be broken when you look...it's fairly easy to replace.

The wiper motor on my 1983 Ford Ranger still works but the wipers no longer move. I think there is a failure of the mechanical linkage. Where do I go to find repair parts?


why do you think the motor still works if the wipers don't move? Can you hear the motor run or can you see a little movement when you turn the switch on?

What happens when you activate the washers?

go to a salvage yard that allows you to remove the parts yourself. Then you can see how the motor and linkage assembly comes out.


don't have 1983 info, but here is 1994:

I turn on my windshield wipers and i can hear the motor come on but the blades dont move


It is most likely one of two things
  1. The wipers have come loose on the shafts. Lift the plastic cover at the end of the wiper blade that attaches to the wiper transmission and turn the wipers on. If the shaft and/or nut is turning, then you can simplt tighten the nut to get them working.
  2. the arm from the motor has popped off. Remove the wiper arms by removing the nut mentioned above and pull up on the wiper slightly while LIGHTLY tapping on the shaft with a small hammer. (Be VERY careful not to damage the threads on the shaft.) Then remove the plastic cowl cover. You will then see the shaft that goes from the wiper motor to the wiper transmission assembly. If it is popped off, it can be popped back on again, but it probably will not stay. It is recommended that you replace the arm.

Wiper motor replacement for a 99 crown vic


I replaced the same part on a 1994 Crown Vic. There are a few bolts which go through rubber mounts on the firewall and that is how the wiper motor fits against the firewall. There is a clip on the wiper drive that must be pressed and slid off the wiper shaft. The hardest part was getting clearence between the engine and wiper motor. If I remember there was a way to turn the wiper case to clear the engine. I have asked myself why this was engineered like this? There is nothing important in the way that 3/4" of clearance could have been given for removal.
