Wipers on 2000 Jeep Cherokee travel too far

I own a 2000 Jeep Cehrokee Classic and the windshield wipers travel too far. The wiper on the drivers side travels seveal inches too far causing the wiper to hit the windshield moundling which in turn causes the wiper to tear and have to be replaced. I have replace the wiper blade several times during the past several months. What can be done to keep the wiper from hiting the moulding?

Hello, this sounds like your wiper transmission got out of alignment possibly due to ice on windsheild.don't really know.short of replacing you could loosen the nut under the cover and move wiper arm back possibly.

Windshield wipers travel past the driver side window:


There is a tool for that, to take the spring tension off the arm

You can still wrestle it off, by lifting the arm off windshield
& on the arms right side & under it ,is a small tab you slide
out.

Then the arm comes off & you can reinstall in a different place

Windshield wipers travel way to far on our 2001 subaru outback stationwagon. How do I shorten up the travel ?


I have the same problem with a 2001 Legacy wagon. The problem is not as simple as the solutions above. Mine are adjusted to park as low as possible when turned off. Even so, the blade on the drivers side goes all the way off the windshield. The Subaru dealer wants to replace the whole wiper blade transmission for about $450. Looking online it seems to be interconnecting arms and pivot points that connect the motor to the wiper blade arms.

When I turn on the windshield wipers they travel too far hitting the windshild pillar(top) and the the cowl(bottom).


The wipers are not installed correctly. Remove and reposition the wiper arms ,so they do not hit the side of the outside window pillar,when set to high speed.

My windshield wipers stopped working after a big snow storm. (1997 Jeep Cherokee)


You should check your fuses first. What may of happened is that the wiper motor could be frozen if the wiper arms are frozen in ice. Another thing that may of happened is that the wipers were used to clear the windshield instead of clearing it manually. When that is done if there is too much snow or it is a heavy snow the wiper motor will burn up or go bad due to the fact that it does not have enough power to do such things.

Windshield wipers stopped working on 1993 jeep cherokee


Did you plug them all back in? lol j/p

Do your blinkers and your back windshield wipers work? It's either electrical or mechanical. Turn them on and poke around to see if you hear the motor doing anything. If you hear it, it's probably a broken linkage. If not, start with the fuses and work from there.

It's possible that by unplugging the battery and then plugging it back it, the fuse for the wipers received an electrical surge, blowing it. Consult your manual to see where the fuse for your model is and check to see if it's blown.

You have a motor for the front and rear washer. Check the fuses. If the intermitted wipers does not work, there is a relay under the dash near the steering colum that needs to be replaced.

Windshield wipers wont work


Can you here the motor running? If not maybe a fuse is blown or the wiper motor is bad.
Can you move the wipers by hand? If you can then the linkage either popped off or is broken.
