Question about 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan

Open Question

Wipers chatter badly on every upstroke. I have replaced blades, arms, and windshield. Chattering unabated. Any ideas?

Problem is worst when windshield is wet. I have tried different manufacturer's blades and several varieties of washer fluids, including Rainex.

SOURCE: windshield wiper arms

The wiper blades might be the wrong size (too long). Or the arms might have to be removed and repositioned so they line up in the right spot at each end of their travel. If the wipers look like they're flopping about or going at different speeds right from left, then the linkage is broken and you'll need to buy a good used linkage from a wrecker.

SOURCE: After replacing the windshield wiper motor on my

This is an old but very current problem also. I just replace my second 97 caravan motor in 6 months because of severe grinding noise and it was the motor both times. I got another re-mfg replacement motor last week and it is totally quiet.
Before you install the crank arm on the motor you operate the wiper switch in all positions to check that the computer is running it intermittently, slow and fast etc. that it and shuts it off at the same position every time. That shut off position is park.
Unplug the external motor connector or fuses. Now push the mechanism arms fully to the right and install the crank arm at two o'clock on the motor shaft, which gives you just enough room to install the hold down nut. Hold one of the metal bars so you don't turn the motor during tightening the nut.
Now reconnect the power plug and test the operation. The motor should shut off with the right end arms fully extended, which, when connected with the blade arm, will make them stop at the bottom of the windshield. Install the driver side wiper arm slightly above level and the left arm 4 inches below that. Don't power tighten yet. Test the operation. If they hit each other adjust one or the other away. This works for most all wiper adjustments. When you get everything looking right and sweeping the full window and not the body. Start tightening and putting every thing back together.
Also clean out the wiper pan and the two drain hoses. The hoses can be pulled loose below the pan. LOL

How to replace a 99 se Bonneville windshield wiper motor


Windshield wiper motors are generally easy to replace. You need to remove the windshield wipers and take off the small grill panel above the hood and under the windshield. You should see the motor in there. It simply unbolts and unplug the electrical connector and replace it with a new one.

Wipers don't touch windshield


The wiper arm springs are weak,just grab a used set of arms as most ventures wipe great.People who stick their wipers straight up,usually when freezing rain is coming ,ruin their wiper arm springs and have less wiping pressure too, so have to replace their arms at some point. PEOPLE STOP LEAVING YOUR ARMS IN THE UP IN THE AIR,OFF THE GLASS POSITION.

In delay cycle wiper hesitates


Hi,
The hesitation of the wipers in delay cycle is normal. You can twist the nob on the end of the arm to speed up or slow down the hesitation.
If you are driving in a light mist and the wipers ran at normal speed most of the time the would be wiping a dry windshield. Chattering and bouncing. With the delay set at the right speed the wipers only go on every so often, No dry chattering. In a full rain just twist the knob past the delay cycle to get low or high speed from the wipers.
Hope this helped you.

How do I change wiper blades 2001 Chevy blazer


Open the cap at the end of the windshield wiper arm at the cowl of the Blazer. This will reveal the bolt that secures the wiper arm to the wiper linkage.
Unbolt the wiper arm using a 3/8-inch ratchet and socket. Place the bolt to the side, as you will reuse it later.
Pull the wiper arm up at the blade so that the blade of the wiper is pointing into the air. Then pull at the base of the arm, wiggling it slightly. It's a keyed gear, so it may take a little bit of workunderlined.png?1 to break it free, but with the right amount of wiggling, it will disengage.

    • Flat blade screwdriver (small)
    • Small nosed pliers
    • Latex or vinyl gloves
    • Safety goggles
    To replace wiper blades theactual action of replacing the blade is no big deal, it's the locationof the blade down below the hood that can make it difficult though.Sometimes it helps to open the hood to gain access to the wiper blades.Other times it is helpful if the wiper blade is somewhere in the motionline of wiper action. The trick is to get the wiper to stop somewherein the wiper arc. Turn the wipers to the on position and allow thewipers to start, and then shut the key off when the wiper has arrivedin a desirable position on the windshield. To replace your wiper bladesplease follow the step by step instruction below. Also, watch the How to replace wiper blades video below to gain additional information. The method in which the wiper blades are attached will vary slightly.
    • Step 1: With the hood closed, turn the wiperson, when the wipers are in the middle of their arc turn the key to theoff position. (Note: if this can't be done because of wiper conditionand you want to avoid scratching the windshield please open your hoodto gain access)
    • Step 2: Locate the mounting clips at the top pivot on the wiper blade
    • Step 3: Release the clip and remove the wiper arm
    • Step 4: Match the size of the old blade against the new blade to ensure proper fit and operation
    • Step 5: Reinstall the new wiper blade and recheck wiper operation

    Common Problems:
    • Make sure the wiper blades are the same size as the original blades.
    • When replacing wiper blades not getting the blade onthe mounting pin completely allowing the wiper arm to become dislodgedand possibly causing damage to the windshield.
    • Using wiper blades after the blade has failed permanently damaging the windshield by craving scratches in the wiper arc.
    • Wiper blade can create a chattering noise when theblade is not properly balanced allowing the blade to "flop" back andforth as the wiper direction changes.

    1993 jeep cherokee country series--replace windshield wipers


    Are trying to remove the blade or the arms?

    The arms are released by holding the wiper blade fully extended away from the winshield and wiggle the arms off.

    The blades are removed by a little tab where the blade hooks to the arm,using a small screwdriver push down on tab,and slide blade off arm but do not let arm slap windshield as it could crack it,I have seen people pull and the blades suddenly come off and the arm slaps down,yor can put a towel or cloth down where the arm sits against the windshield to prevent the possibilty of the arm slapping down.
