Are the arms on backwards?? (right on left and left on right) just a though.
The passanger side goes on first sitting about 2" above the cowel and the drivers side sits about 4" above the passanger wiper. both wipers should be straight and parallel to the cowel when 'parked'
(you could also drop by the used car lot and compare it to another van)
hope this helps.

Down at the Base of the Arms, Where they Mount and Swivel and Lift Up, There is a Very small Tab that you can Pull up torwards to top of the Windshield. Get a Pair of Pliers and Pull this Tab up until it Stops. Then take the Pliers and a Wrag or Tape them and Grab the Arm at the Swivel Point and Wiggle while you Pull to get the Arms to Release. From this point Forward it is going to be Trial and Error on your Part to get them Aligned back to where they Belong. Without Being there Physically it is Impossible for me to Help you from this Point. Good Luck! Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Remove Liftgate wiper arm on 1999 Town & country

Sounds brutal, but this is what I have done in the past. Mark the center of the arm at the pivot with a center punch. Drill into the casting with a drill for 1/4" fine thread. Using a bottoming tap tap the hole with threads. Raise/pivot up the arm and lock it in place. Spray a little WD-40 in the hole, install a fine thread bolt and SLOWLY tighten. You can get a nifty little plastic plug for the hole at the hardware store after reinstall. Seal it up with a dab of silicone. Kind of a pain, but it worked for me!

Driver's side wiper not working

The wiper arms are attached to the wiper motor by clips. If the drivers side clip came undone then the wiper arm could possibly fall off the motor. Some wiper arms are attached as a duet with 1 clip. In this case the arm broke off the mounting plate and the entire assembly needs to be changed.

These parts, for some reason, are called wiper transmissions. You can web search the part by that name on the internet. You will probably find good photos to show how they are made. You may just need to replace the clip which also can be researched on the internet.

I have a 2007 Town and County. The rear wiper is not touching window by about 1/4 inch. I can press it back down but it will not stay once you turn on the wiper. How can I fix this problem?

If it is not touching the glass the arm is bent. Raise the arm away from the glass. Grasp the arm near where it is mounted to the body and near the wiper blade with the other hand. Slightly bend the arm toward the glass. Only bend the arm a very slight amount and check to see if there is enough pressure for the wiper blade to work correctly. Repeat this until the wiper blade cleans the glass properly. DO NOT over bend the wiper arm as too much pressure will cause the blade to wear out very quickly.

Need to remove the wiper arms from my 1999 Town and Country. Have taken the plastic cap off, taken nut off and the arm will not budge. Any thoughts?

Lift the arm side so it's pointing up in the air. (put a floor mat on the windshield to protect it) and lift up and push down on it wiggling it off. Or if you have a rubber mallet (so as not to damage the threads) hit the stud in the middle with a good shot but not hard enough to break anything.

How do i get the rear wiper arm off a 2000 chrysler town n replacing the motor

Look at the wiper arm. Where the shaft comes through there is a cap on the arm. Pop it up and you will see a nut remove nut and you should be able to get arm off.
Hope that helps!

Just hopped into our 1999 town and country and the driver side wiper arm is not working... Any ideas?

If it has a plastic cap on it, under the cap is a nut that holds it tight to the arm shaft. Pop off the plastic cap, and tighten the nut.
