Wiper linkage and pivot assy bad? 2 left shafts rotate under power, but far right shaft does not (turns hard by hand)


You have power so electric is ok..Sounds like you have stripped wiper arm connections/post and/or wiper motor gear...or possibly bent operating assembly,,,first remove the arms from the post.they should have a small locking device just under the arm at the bottom..move it out and the arm can be released and removed..once both are off check for stripping on arm and wiper if not stripped turn the wipers on see if they operate..if they do shut them off and let them come to a normal stop...then reapply the blades in the normal operating positions and turn on,,adust if needed..if not check for bent and binding of the rods..It not the motor gear or motor will need to be replaced..If you are mechanically inclined it is nit that hard of a job..there are good videos on UTUBE just ask how to replace wiper motor for you vehicle.Good luck..

The driver side power seat button moves forward and backward and reclines, but wont move up or down, the seat is stuck all the way down so i cant get to the wrom gear underneath, how do i go about raising...


I am working on a replacement motor that will come with a new gear/shaft on it. I have one of my setups in the car right now and have the parts for another one ordered. I hope to make a video of the repair in a couple weeks when the parts show up. Still uses plastic gears, but these are larger, more durable gears and the swap is fairly straight forward with just a few modifications.

Windshield wiper on passengers side stopped working.


The wiper arm is either loose or the gear has stripped out the arm socket itself. Try taking the arm off and turn the wipers on, if that gear still turns, then try tightening the arm back down. If it is stripped, you must replace the arm. Otherwise, if the gear still doesnt turn, the connecting rods under the cowl have been damaged and may need replaced.

My driver side windshield wiper gear is stripped out allowing the wiper to go were it wishes. It either travels to far and ends up getting stuck on the driver door or it goes to far down and ends up...


Knowing the make and model of your vehicle would help immensely. From your description and my experience, I would say it's not a gear, but the wiper arm itself. Where the arm mounts to the wiper transmission (aka motor), there will be a plastic or sometimes metal cover, gently pull or pry upward on the edge of it to expose the nut that keeps it in place. Remove this nut and then the arm, and inspect the 'teeth' or splines inside the hole on the arm, and on the wiper transmission, where the arm mounts. Most often the arms are made of aluminum, and the transmission is of steel, so the arm will strip first. Usually the arm can be replaced (try a junkyard for a low cost replacement) without much effort, and a few basic hand tools. Also be sure to clean any residual material from the wiper transmission where the arm mounts prior to installation, a piece of steel wool or brillo pad usually works best. I hope this helps, and good luck.

Windshield wiper for rear window does not work we can hear a clicking sound come from the motor of the rear windshield wiper


If you hear a clicking sound, then you know you have power. Check to see if the motor arm is moving any at the wiper arm.The small cap that covers the wiper arm to motor can be pulled apart, to see if the nut is loose or if the gear housing is stripped on the wiper arm, or if the motor drive is stripped. These are say to check and are cost effective for you.

Power seat will go back and forward but upper seat won't. Can hear the motor in the seat running.


HI, this is main gear failuer. the gear may have become stripped at this point. you will need to replace the entire gear assembly.

Contact your dealer for this repair.

Driver's seat unable to move forward or backward


There are plastic gears connecting the track to the seat assembly. Whne one of these strip the seat will only work or move to one side. Infiniti does not sell a simple fix. You are looking at buying an entire seat assembly complete with the module for all the electronics. It will be at a cost of around $950 - $1000. Once that is in, Infiniti must program the seat to the brain of the car, only then can you reset your memory settings.

Replaced wiper motor,twice, when i turn it on the arms move about two inches,then stop .then they.sound like there slipping .just move up &down about two inches. 88 celebrity


This doesn't sound like a motor problem but a gear stripped. The motor and gear are normally sold and installed as a single unit. See if you can move the arm manually. If you get a lot of slop it could be a stripped gear. Turn the wipers on and move the arm manually. It may catch and than stop at the broken part of the gear.
