SOURCE: Driver's side windshield wiper stopped working.

Hello, I would say that is exactly what has happened. If you can move the wipers with no resistance it's likely one of the bolts has come loose. Both wiper arms are linked to one wiper motor.

SOURCE: Windshield wiper linkage ball joint white knuckle cap is broken

This is a DIY fix for a dollar. The white plastic caps that join the wiper arms together in the wiper assembly commonly wear and break under normal use. 1984 - 1986 Honda CRX and Civics also used these plastic caps for a short time - much to my dismay. In my 2000 Subaru Legacy and Subaru Forester (should work on 2001, 2002, 2003, and 2004 models as well), there is an easy DIY solution that will take care of the excessive play in the wiper travel, as well as the common 'wiper clunk'.
Head over to your local auto parts store an purchase a PCV Valve grommet for a Toyota. Part number 42058. These are only a dollar, and are normally stocked on the shelf. If you put the phrase 'pcv valve 42058' into to Google Image Search you will see what I mean. I’m attaching a picture as well.
For installation, gain access to the wiper assembly, I recommend removing the entire assembly (arms and motor) from below the black trim piece under the windshield. Inspect all the joints. If you have a loose joint, remove the white plastic cap and the arm from the ball joint. Slide the PCV Valve Grommet over the ball joint and press the arm into the grommet. This is now a perfect, snug fit. Wiper blades slamming into the car is a thing of the past.

The windshield wipers on my 1999 diamante won't work.But when i turn on the windshield switch i can here the windshield motor,running!


their is three main components to your windshield wipers. their is the wiper arms, linkage and motor. Check the linkage at the motor. you can find this ether under the hood or by removing a cover that is between your windshield and hood. The linkage has bolts or allen screws that hold them on the motor and the wiper arms they may be loose. it could also be bushings that are in between the two linkage rods it could be warn out and caused the linkage to seperate. Hope this helps

Windshield wipers dont work, you can hear the motor runnig but wipers wont move


The windshield motor is connected to the windshield wiper's arms via mechanical linkage. The linkage had been severed. There's a lockpin that secures this linkage. If rust/corrosion had built up on this lockpin, it may had fallen off. Buy a Haynes or Chilton manual to see how to access the wiper motor area.

Windshield Wiper Motor Replacement


Nope, but you have to position the linkage in just the right position so that it will clear the windshield glass and the brackets that are located below the windshield.

Windshield wipers stopped working on 1998 Nissan Sentra. Is it a fuse problem? If so, where is fuse box and which fuse? Is it a motor problem? is this an easy diy fix?


Water can enter and displace the grease in the wiper arm linkage ball joint where the wiper linkage attaches to the wiper motor linkage.

This can result in gradual wear over a period of time inside the joint that could lead to the separation of the wiper linkage assembly from the wiper motor linkage at the ball joint. A loss of windshield wiper function can result when this separation occurs.

To prevent grease from being washed out of the joint, the dealers will modify by adding a water diversion seal that will prevent water from entering the windshield wiper linkage ball joint area.

I have a 1990 Sentra. I turned on my wipers when the windshield was frozen. Unfortunately, now only the right one works. What could I look for to see if I can fix it.


you probably bent or broke the wiper linkage check under the hood and see if you can get to the wiper linkage from there to see if it just popped off. If not you will have to take the cowling off the bottom of the windshield and check it out.
A replacement linkage is not that expensive and if your halfway decent with tools you could replace it just remember if you remove the wipers do not leave the arms up incase they drop down and crack the windshield.
