Hi bill im scott, im sorry to be the one that has to tell you this but it might be that you have rounded the main motor arm which is not as easy to change as just the wiper arm. if it just wiper arm then you will find a cap at the base of the arm which will pivot up with a little force and reveal a nut which will need undoing and most prob wil be loose. hence hitting wing mirror, if not the arm then it will take a lot of shifting the bulk head and remove whole wiper motor and inner arms which can be a bugger of a job.

I moved my windsheild wiper arms to remove the snow. now the driver side windsheild wiper keeps going off the wind sheild


Where is the blade when switch is off? Some of the GM cars in the 2000 years had problems with the post where the wiper arm attaches. The post will strip the groves when trying to move heavy snow. You will have to remove the arm, and reinstall it when the wiper switch is off.

Cannot get the wind shield wiper motor back in the wind shield wiper stops in the middle of the wind shield


this is normally caused by a bad wiper motor or binding of the wiper gears and linkage arms.
check to see if the linkage arms are tight and not loose. also try and lube up the pivot points.
another thing to check is to make sure you have 12 volts to the heater.

Wind shield wipers dont work. I can hear the motor running but the wipers wont move.. Whats wrong??


The wiper motor has an arm ( or two ) linking the motor to the wipers. These arms have plastic bushings and it is possible one or more bushings wore out and the arm (s) fell off the motor. You'll need to look at a specific repair manual for your car to see where exactly the arm ( s ) are and what is involved in replacing those bushings, as some vehicles require you to replace the arm with the bushings and others allow you to just replace the bushings.
Hope this helps!!

The arm is stripped onto the stud its pressed into which is call a wiper transmission. That part mounts to eack ww blade then to the wiper motor. You need a new transmission and maybe a new wiper are as well
