SOURCE: How to remove front wiper

What poster #1 said is correct, but often they are jammed on and hard to remove. A puller tool will help. You can also partially re-thread the nut then use a channel-lock plier to push down on the the nut and up on the arm similar to how a puller tool works.

It is on the firewall under the hood. It has 3 to 4 bolts holding on. Be careful when taking it out to see how the new one lines back up. Hope it helps.

How do I remove the rear wiper assembly from the rear wiper motor


flip the nut cover back up the arm and undo the nut shown
the arm base is normally on a splined taper so you may need a flat blade under the arm base on a piece of something so as not to damage the paint and lever it off the spline

I've got a 2000 dodge dakota i need to see what position does the windshield wiper arms need to be in after i replace the wiper motor


Hi.

It's pretty easy, you do not need to know the position, the wiper motor always return to it's origin, just activate the wiper motor by briefly using the washer fluid switch for instance, let it finish it's movement. Next, you want to place the wiper arm with the longest blade on the driver side. Now for the height, most car's wiper sit from 0.5 to 1 inch above the base of the windshield so that should be what you're aiming for, if the wiper arms pinion has splines, try to pick the one closest to the windshield but not too close of course and repeat the same steps for the passenger side. Now you should check the wiper arm operation for collision, incorrect height or travel distance and adjust the wiper arm position accordingly. By the way, if you're lucky your windshield may have mark on the base of the tinting of the windshield to indicate the height of the wiper blade

How do I fix or replace the rear wiper motor


Hello,

  1. Disconnect the cable running to the negative terminal on the car's battery. To do this, loosen the nut on the cable clamp until the clamp is loose enough for you to slide the cable clamp off the negative battery terminal.
  2. Pull the wiper arm away from the rear windshield until the wiper arm locks into a vertical or semi-vertical position or is perpendicular to the rear windshield.
  3. Remove the nut holding the wiper arm assembly to the rear wiper motor.
  4. Pull the wiper arm off the wiper motor assembly.
  5. Unplug the rear wiper motor plug/harness.
  6. Remove the screws holding the rear wiper motor to the inside of the vehicle at the base of the rear window.
  7. Pull the rear wiper motor off.
  8. Install the new wiper motor and put the wiper motor and arm assembly back on the vehicle by reversing the completed steps.

I have one wiper that does not work the other stops in the middle of the windshield how can i fix them


The motor could be bad, but it's likely that the ball joint connections under the hood area under the cowl have become disconnected for the one windshield wiper arm.

The connection of the arm that moves should be checked for being at the correct angle for parking.

Rear wiper hangs loose, wont wipe


Sounds like the spring has broken in the wiper arm. If you pull the cover off of the base of the wiper arm there will be a screw. Remove the screw and pull straight out on the base of the arm. That will release it from the actuator. You should be able to pick one up at a parts house for about $20 to $40 dollars or you could shop a salvage yard for about $10. Hope this helps. Good luck. Please re-post with updates. Thanks cj2176.

The wiper arm is broken and will not move at all. I tried to use it when there was excessive snow on the wind shield. It originally moved over pass the edge of the wind shield and hit the driver side rear...


hi bill im scott, im sorry to be the one that has to tell you this but it might be that you have rounded the main motor arm which is not as easy to change as just the wiper arm. if it just wiper arm then you will find a cap at the base of the arm which will pivot up with a little force and reveal a nut which will need undoing and most prob wil be loose. hence hitting wing mirror, if not the arm then it will take a lot of shifting the bulk head and remove whole wiper motor and inner arms which can be a bugger of a job.
