2003 Ford Explorer My rear wiper fluid is pouring out under the truck when I try to wash the rear window. It looks like it is coming out under the passenger seat. How do I fix it?


It's a loose / broken hose running from the washer fluid reservoir to the windshield wiper. Trace the hose and look for the leak. May need to pull up the back seat since that seems to be where the leak is.

2003 Ford Explorer wiper stays on after vehicle is turned off


Every wiper motor has a switch built into it that is supposed to shut off the wiper when it reaches it's 'home' position. Apparently that is getting stuck. If you're brave you can try taking it a apart and check it out, otherwise you probably need a new motor.

my 2004 expedition had same problem, if you take apart the shaft that goes thru the glass it will be full of dirt, clean ,lubricate and reinstall, you may have to replace the O-ring on the shaft. a 20 minute job, very easy fix
