Wiper Linkage question...2002 Yukon Denali XL

Hello, my name is Jared. I'm needing to replace and/or repair the wiper linkage in my 2002 Yukon Denali XL. How do I access this piece properly without causing more damage? I've not really worked on my own car before, but because of finances, I'm forced to at this point.

Could you please give me a tip or step by step as to how to access the wiper linkage?

    When looking at the windshield from the nose of the car, when the wipers are engaged, the right wiper functions properly. The left one stays in the "off" position. It's as if the part in on the wiper linkage that raises and lowers the wiper arm is not connected on that one side.

BINGO you need to flip the wiper arm end cover up or off and tighten the nut, 13mm usually

your wiper arm just needs to be tightened up

but align them or it as you tighten it

Repair wiper linkage

Most likely the spline is stripped where the wiper blade connects to the linkage. All I do is insert a wire ( soft metal, like bailing wire) between the wiper arm and the linkage and tighten down the nut. But if the linkage doesn't move, then the linkage set has to be replaced. I have yet to find replacement parts for these. Salvage yard is your best bet.

Wipers stuck up when shut off. i need a diagram of the motor and arms

common GM issue, faulty wiper motor. buy another and either get a repair manual or search for a video on youtube of someone replacing their GM wiper motor. you will have to remove the linkage, swap the motor, then reinstall the linkage. be extra careful to make sure the wiper switch is in OFF position before you begin and to note the OFF position on the linkage as you reinstall the motor.

Wiper problem 2002 ford explorer. Motor energizes, but wipers won't move unless you give them a "shove". How do you access the wiper drive system ? Thanks

it is problem with linkage of motor , you have to lubricate it then try once, but the motor is gone weak so it not pushing that linkage, you just try with lubricating that linkage that connected to wiper motor to wiper arm, if it work you saved your money or do replace the motor assy.

Windshield wipers will not move. Arms from motor


The windshield wiper linkage comes as an assembly. The assembly comes with the two rotating splines that the wiper arms attach to. you must remove wiper arms. Remove cowl trim and remove bolts that hold the pivot points to the body. The new linkage that snaps to the wiper motor should come with a new retaining clip. You have to fish the linkage assembly through the access holes in the body by un bolting the wiper motor.

One windshield wiper won't lift when turned on

Sounds like possibly the R/S armis loose or stripped . Also check linkage. With car and wipers off, carefully attempt to manually move R/S wiper arm. There should be little or no movement.

Hi, you need to remove the linkage from the wiper motor, turn the wipers on, wait for the motor to cycle and stop on its on, turn ignition off, now the motor is "self parked" you can put the linkage back on making sure the wipers are at the bottom of the screen as required. Let me know if you need more help. Davelee.
