Windshield wiper linkage won't stay connected on Chevy 2007 Impala

I am re-posting this information that I entered previously as a reply to a different answer because this is a problem where I need assistance, not an answer. I had a problem where the wipers weren't coming on so I checked the fuses, they were fine so I replaced the motor. That seemed to address one problem successfully because the wiper shafts turn and I can hear the motor running when I turn on the wipers, which I could not before changing out the motor. However, when I reconnect the mechanical linkage, replace the plastic cowl, re-install the wiper blades, and turn on the wipers, the mechanical linkage immediately pops free or off and the blades quit moving. I can still hear the motor running but the linkage is no longer connected. Any suggestions or hints on how to get that linkage assembled so it stays on fully when the wipers are engaged? Thanks.

SOURCE: wipers willnot return to park position

I've fixed this problem before. You have to disconnect the wiper transmission from the wiper motor. Put wipers in off position, unbolt the plate on top of wiper, turn wipers on then off. In the off position see where the wiper transmission is position in relation to where the park position is, remove the top plate from wiper motor and position it so as to be able to reconnect the wiper transmission now in the proper place. Please keep me informed. thanks you

The wipers have a control module in the wiper motor. That is what is wrong. On that model you will have to replace the wiper motor . Good Luck

SOURCE: my 2007 chevy impala windshield wiper dont work but the motor is running, what do i do?

Your wiper arm that is connected to the wiper motor under the plastic where you remove the wiper arms has come off or broken or the wiper motor is striped out the arm is good and simply need a new motor. You will have to remove the cover under the wiper blades it is as wide as the front of the car. Look under it to see what is actually going on. These are not very complicated repairs and can be done by a novice person. if you need further help please ask me i can send diagrams threw my home email if you think you need it. It is a pretty simple procedure. Also Please remember to rate my solution and leave testimonial this is how i earn my achievements Thanks in advance. .

If the wipers are consistent in where they stop the problem may be due to the splined shaft of the drive motor has rotated within wiper linkage attachment. Remove motor/linkage assembly remove linkage from motor and check for stripped splines on the linkage/motor. Willie

Windshield wiper motor comes on but wipers don't move...thinking that the assembly has come detached somehow. How does one get in to the area to take it all apart to re-attach?


At the base of the wiper arm there will be a plastic cover. Pull up on it an you will see a nut that holds the wiper arm to the post. Remove the nut and push down/up on the wiper arm to release it from the post. Once both wiper arms are removed you can remove the push pins that hold the cowl in place and remove the cowl. You will then have access to the wiper motor and linkages.

The driver's side windshield wiper just stopped moving on my 1993 Geo Metro. The other one still works fine, but the one on the left side feels as though it has become disconnected. It swivels freely...


In your car, a single wiper motor powers a linkage that drives both your windshield wipers. However, joints in that flexible linkage can fail. When that happens, one of your wipers will not longer operate properly. If the linkage has broken completely, the wiper will act like you've described--it'll swivel easily by hand because it's no longer connected to the linkage.

On this car, your wiper motor should be under the hood, sticking out of the firewall. If you're not sure which is your wiper motor, have someone turn on the wipers while you listen and watch. It should be easy to spot the motor, even if you can't quite see what it's doing.

Disconnect your battery, and then loosen the bolts holding your wiper motor in place. Once the bolts are loose, pull it *gently* out of its hole. It probably won't come out all the way, as it will be attached to either one or two linkages, and you run the risk of bending them if you yank on the motor too hard. Once you can see the shaft of the wiper motor, have an assistant move the problem wiper by hand so you can see what's going on. Did the linkage slip off the wiper motor shaft, for example, or is the problem closer to the wiper arm? This observation should start to help you figure this out.

If, in fact, the linkage is bad, then the only solution is to replace it. First, remove one or both wiper arms, depending on whether you have one unified linkage or a small linkage for each wiper arm. You'll be left with little rotating stubs at the wipers. These are most likely bolted in place with external bolts. Take those off and gently push the linkage back into the cavity. You should now be able to pull the linkage out through the opening where the wiper motor was installed. It may require some creative positioning, but it should come out. If, by chance, the linkage won't fit through this hole, you may be able to get it out by removing one or more of the air intake screens and getting the linkage out through those passages.

Installation is the reverse of removal. You may wish you had very little hands to get the linkage bolts properly hooked up to the wiper motor.

One further tip: If you live near a "pick-a-part" salvage yard, which is a great place to find an affordable used linkage for this car, you can practice the linkage removal process on a dead car before trying it out on your own.
