Question about 2002 Buick Century

1 Answer

The right windshield wiper on my 2002 Buick Century just jerks

It jerks and doesn't travel it's full arc. I thought it might have come loose. But when I look at the base of the wiper there's a round smooth button like thing instead of a nut. Is this button thing a cover I can pop off? or how can I see a parts bread down to see how it goes together...

    It is a cover, pry it loose and then tighten the bolt

2000 BUICK REGAL MY WIPER BLADES (DRIVER SIDE) WENT OFF THE WINDSHIELD THE OTHER NIGHT. WHEN I PUT IT BACK IT DID NOT WORK PROPERTY WHAT COULD BE WRONG DO I NEED TO TAKE IT TO A DEALER?


i`m not sure what you mean by it not working properly i assume that you mean it goes back and forth like the passenger side, but it doesn`t clean the window and you put the blade on the arm correctly then the wiper may be damaged and you will have to replace the wiper blade.check and compare the installation of the driver`s side to the passenger side wiper and correct the installation of the blade

The wipers on my 2002 Buick century work properly except when they are turned off. Instead of returning to the park position they stop vertically in the center of the windshield. How do I correct this?


replace the wiper motor, the park on shut off circuit has gone awry. buy a repair book or look for videos on youtube.com as to removal and replacement.

Wipers stop in middle of windshield when turned off - Century 2002 tried nothing thus far


The control board on the wiper motor has ametal "stop" that got bent.
This usually happens when the wipers are stuck ( frozen from ice?) and turned on.
This can be readjusted bu bending back to original position or replacing the control board
About $35 for part

Resetting wiper arms. Ice damage


Well pop the two little black plastic top hats off of the wiper arm mounts and losen the nuts. Turn your wipers off and tighten them in the lower position.There should be visible mark on the widshield where the wipers have spent most of there time sitting.If you have them to low when you turn them on you will be able to tell by how high the go up on the windshield.Well hope this helped.

2000 Buick Century, Spavinaw, OK, December 26, 2009, 13:21 driving home in snow storm and passenger side quit working , the drivers side works - cleared out all the snow and ice and still does not work...


Remove the wiper arm and check the serrated hub to see if it sheared a pin holding it to the shaft. If it is ok, then you may have a broken/loose part in the linkage. Good luck!

1999 Buick Centery passenger side windshield wiper


Sounds like you need two new wiper motors. I beliveve the gearing inside the motors are worn out and now theres alot of play in them. Try wiggling the wipers with you hands and see if you can feel any up or down / side to side movement.

How do I remove my wiper arms on my 91 Buick Century?


If I remember correctly if you lift the wiper arm and push this clip in it will hold the wiper up and also release it from the transmission. You will have to wiggle the arm to get loose.

Good luck.....

Buick Century wipers out of sync


You could also see if the bolts holding the wipers on came loose from the snow and ice. Pop the cover off, loosen and straighten the wipers where they should be and tighten.
