An easy fix would be to go tothe Junk Yard and pull off the parts you need .......in order to do this though I would advise getting a Haynes Manual (VERY VERY HELPFUL BOOK) for your car...Available at your local Auto parts Store (even if you dont do it yourself you should still get the book...it can save you a lot of time and money when it comes to knowing and working on your vehicle)

Steve, You can find information at several web sites. One is All Data but they will charge you for each individual vehicle but Auto Zone will provide most vehicles for free.
Good luck.

I am not a mechanic and have had no problems with my 2005 Ion-2 but at msn/autos I see that these can exhibit a starting problem because of the ignition switch which they recommend replacing. The part is around $40 & the labor is 1 hr.

You can get the part from your local auto parts or dealer. The replacement is very easy, just pop the black cap from the wide side of the arm and take the nut off (either a 10mm or 12mm socket will do) and pry up and down a couple fo times. Don't forget to make a little mark on the arm and the stud to realign it.

Their is a solution to the common saturn ion windsheild wiper problems. A new improved version of the wiper linkage is available and it has aluminum pivots instead of plastic. The plastic pivots were the weekest point of that linkage. I bought one oat this link and put it in myself. Awesome product

I just replaced the wiper motor transmission on my 2005 Saturn Ion. When I removed the nuts holding the wiper arms in place, I noticed both nuts were stripped. I am having problems finding the correct size...


They should be 8mm x 1.5 thread. If you take a nut to a GM dealer you should be able to find a correct replacement. A hardware store should have something comparable.

Transmissions have "filters." It may need to be changed as the fluid may be dirty and clogging some of the pressure valves in the ******.

remove plastic cowl that covers your wiper motor ( runs fom one side of car to the other under windshield ) and make sure that the linkage is not broken. broken linkage is a common issue on this car. if it is broken let me know, i can get you some instructions on a cheap diy fix insted of spending $120 - $200 on replacement parts.
