I replaced a wiper motor on a 2003 cavalier. After replacing it. The wiper arms swing down before going up across the windshield.I want to know what do in need to adjust so the wipers work correctly.

The part that is attached to the wiper motor is in the wrong location. Remove the nut or bolt that attached the wiper transmission to the motor and remove the short arm from the wiper motor. Turn the wiper motor on and then off. wait until it stops moving. Set the wiper arms to the correct "home" position. Reattach the wiper transmission arm to the wiper motor.

Wipers wont park on 1995 chevy cavalier

Most of the time it is in the wiper transmission in side of wiper moter. thats where the parking cam is. Spray pb blaster or similar on motor shaft and linkage it may help. Fix the problem, if not replace the motor. You may be able to pick up a used motor at a junk yard to save $$$$. Good-Day!

2003 cavalier only one wiper works

If one works the motor is ok. The issue is morre than likley the linkage under the crowel below the windsheild. it has com apart or the wiper transmission is bad. Try accessing that arrea to get a look. you will probably see the control arm just lying on the bottom, possably along with the nut that fell off the back of the transmission.

How to replace a Wiper motor.

Remove two push on caps on wiper arms. Remove nuts and wiper arms, disconnect washer hoses. Remove "push in" plastic retainers on plastic cowl grille and remove grille. Disconnect electrical plug on motor. Remove 3 bolts securing wiper transmission/motor. Lift out assembly. Remove motor from transmission - 2 torx screws and nut on motor shaft @ trans link. Note position of trans link on motor shaft. Reverse all to reinstall.

Windshield wiper transmission

I have been a GM mechanic for thirty-five years and I have never heard of a wiper "transmission." Your wiper motor would cost about 300 bucks to have replaced, parts, tax and labor.

Driver side wiper not working!

its a small, white plastic "nut" on the wiper transmission arm- find one in a junkyard-snap it in and you can solve it for 2 bucks-takes about 10 minutes to do. Cant get the part separately without buying the entire transmission, which you dont want to do- common problem with cavaliers and sunfires of this year.

On a 2004 Cavalier when I turn on the wiper full blast it works fine But when its on slow or delay it pulsates and doesn't stop in the proper place.

Chances are good that the wiper motor is the issue. The "park" mode for your wipers is controlled by the motor.

2004 Cavalier Wiper Motor

hi, im not sure if they would have a separate motor each because most vehicles have a linkage bar that connects the two wipers to keep them in time with each other. without the wipers on, try manually rotating the paasenger side wiper (be gentle) if that moves easily and the drivers side does not even flinch, then it could be a broken linkage. hope i helped!
