Question about 2001 Chrysler Town & Country
This morning I went to turn on the window wipers and they attempted to move but will not. There was an ice storm yesterday, so I thought they might be frozen. I waited a while and tried again, but nothing. They move approximately 1-2 inches, but that is it. Should I try removing them?
First, make sure thay are not stuck to the windshield, free up the wiper blade and try again. if it still does not work one of two things, the nut has come lose on the wiper arm or a arm or knuckle in the motor assembly is bent or broken. to remove the wiper arm, remove the round plactic cap and remove the nut. be careful removing the wiper they rust on and can break easily, if it won't come off use a wiper puller ( battery puller will also work), you can also use a propane tourch to heat it up. the cowel is held on with torex screws, there is one in each corner and some more in between the fins in the cowel, there is also two plastic phillips screws one in each corner, do not unscrew but turn them 90 degrees either way to release. there also may or may not be 4 wingnuts. under the hood on the cowel. once the cowel is removed you will see the wiper motor assembly. check all the arms and knuckle for damage. hope this helps.
