Question about 2000 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

1 Answer

Wipers are not aligned

I didn't realize my wipers were frozen and attempted to turn them on. They are now not aligned and one actually wrapped around the side of the car. Are there replacement gears or a part that I need to get them back on track?

How do i get access to rear windscreen wiper mechanism


hello,first off,why do you need access to wiper mechanism? wipers not working? checked the fuses?,open the drivers door,and at the end of the dashboard facing the door is an access panel for the fuses,unclip that with a small thin screwdriver,check the fuses,also what is known as -fascia2- there are relay's, usually numbered on top in bold white numers,it should be 377,which is a double relay for both the front and rear wiper mechanism,that may be defective.if all these are good,and working,the wiring that goes through roof scuttle -to the -tailgate,may actually be broken,which is a common fault,you may need to use a (carefully)a Stanley knife to gently cut open the rubber sheathing to get a visible look inside,you may well find the main 'LIVE' supply to the motor,or the thick 'earth' wire broken ,here.if so, use an identical thickness wire,(to add a bit of length to the broken wire,as simply rejoining it may cause the whole wiring harness to bunch up,and cause further problems) simply use a wire stripper to gain enough of the end's to wrap around in a circle a few times,then use a pair of pliers to squeeze tighter,then use a good quality pvc tape,stretch the tape a bit,as that eases the insulating part,rather than merely wrap the tape around as it comes off the roll in a haphazard way.if all this fails,or is not where you are striving for,then removing the rear tailgate panel is quite simple,raise the tailgate and you will notice a recess on the panel,there should be a screw(usually a 20 torq) undo that,also check all around for any other 'screw's that may be on your particular car,unscrew them also,and then using a small to medium screwdriver,or better still a medium pry bar,starting from 1 end at bottom gently prise off the panel,section by section,until you have gone all around the entire section of the panel,as there are clips on the panel that 'snap in to recesses on the tailgate,which hold the panel to the tailgate.replacing the panel is fairly simple,just align the panel with the recesses to the clips as accurately as possible,and slap the panel exactly where each of the clips are aligned with the holes,and they will pop in to place,and go all around the entire perimeter,slapping the panel with the palm of your hand.hope that helps. cheers.

I replacsed th wiper transmission and now the wiper fuse keeps blowing I did not work on any thing but that


Does the fuse blow when the wipers are off or when you turn the wipers on? A fuse blowing means either a short circuit or an overload. Lets say that your wiper transmission is new and working properly, then an overload is probably blowing the fuse which is caused by the circuit pulling to much current because something is not aligned correctly and moving freely when the wiper motor is turned on. Before you connect the arms to the transmission, move the arm assembly manually with your hand to make sure the wipers go across and back on the windshield. This will verify that the arm assembly is moving freely and not jamming. Then turn the wiper transmission without connecting the wiper arms and see if the transmission is working properly and not blowing the fuse. This will verify that your wiper transmission is not defective. Check the wiring going to the wiper transmission for any bare spots or nicks on the wire insulation. If you have a bare spot or nick that is touching metal, the fuse will blow (this is called a short circuit). If you find a bare spot or nick on the wire use electrician tape to insulate the bare spot or nick. Usually three wraps of electrician tape around the bare spotor nick will do the job. Oh, make sure to replace the fuse with the correct amp fuse. Your car dealer auto parts can provide the information (over the phone) on the correct amp size. You can purchase the fuse at any auto parts. FYI: Too small an amp on the fuse will blow when the wiper is turned on. Too large of a fuse will cause the wiring to burn if your wipers should stop shifting and jam. Good Luck. Hope this helps.

Washer fluid is probably frozen, have you checked the fuse for the wipers? There should be an overload protection in case the blades stick

Timing on 85 toyot corolla / et up


If you mean how to install timing belt, I'm not sure on your corrolla, but on my old tercel I turned the crank pulley so that cylinder 1 was at its top height (by feeling with a screwdriver in sparkplug hole) then turned valve pulley until first valve was open (with valve cover off) then aligned the timing belt that way. It didn't work. Then I realized that the cylinder has 2 top positions, one for "compress" stroke and one for "push out exhaust", so I turned crank again to bring cylinder one to top height, aligned belt, and it worked, car started.

Then I realized that crankshaft pulley had a ''timing mark'' (a kind of little notch) on it and that it aligned perfectly with a mark on engine, just to prove that I had done it right, "by hand".

Hope the info helps ya !

The passenger side wiper blade won't work I have a 2006 Torrent when the wipers are on the nut doesn't even turn please help


The wiper arm "nut" is the key...try tightening the nut down...be sure the wiper arm is in the correct (same) location as the drivers side...you can do this by running the good side, and turn wipers off before turning the key off...this will assure proper alignment...Don't be afraid to torque the nut down...this is the most common problem...as winter and ice take a toll on frozen...wiper arms that are pulled loose from the ice or snow...Hope this helps.

Driver's headlight is dim; wipers only work if headlight is off


Sounds like the jolt from the barrier has caused a bad ground to occur. Look for a bad ground wire around the left headlamp in or around the headlight bucket.
Tighten or replace the bad ground wire. A poor contact will cause the headlight to light dimly.
