    I was not in vehicle when problem occurred. Was told wiper went off windshield, got stuck. Driver stopped re-positioned wiper and then it only moved a couple of inches. Stripped gears is what I am thinking. I guess whole assembly needs replacement?

  • j100 Apr 17, 2009

    yes it seems to.

Some wiper arms fit over a splined pivot post. When you tighten the nut down, the splines cut into the wiper arm thus holding it tight and keeping it from slipping on the post.
You may just need to tighten the wiper arm down r replace the wiper arm. Does it have a cover that you can rotae up and expse the nut?

SOURCE: my 99 chevy silverado power window stoped working

This would more than likely NOT be a sensor problem.

In replacing the hinges you more than likely disrupted the wires that run from the cab into the door, causing a ground, pinching a wire or in some way causing no power to get through one of the wires. There is a rubber boot that runs between the door and the cab, pull it back and have someone hold the button in the down position. Then wiggle the wires until the window moves. That truck will have defog mirrors on it more than likeley so there will be plenty of wires to wiggle. When you find the problem wire simply cut the problem area, replace it with an end to end connector (**** connector) and seal it with silicone. If it is not one of the wires, you more than likely had a wire come off inside the door. (depends on how much you horsed it when you were changing those hinges) Thats where i'd start.

Best Of Luck!

SOURCE: The rear wiper on my 99 Bravada has quit working.

Unscrew inside panel on tailgate (3 screws-1 each side, 1 in the middle), unclip and remove by pulling up and out towards the rear. Unscrew all screws holding steel plate down, unclip plastic clips that hold the rod running behind the plate and unhook rod at top of that opens the window. Unclip wiring harnesses, remove wiper from the outside (1 nut holding it down)and unbolt the motor. It is pretty self explanatory once you have the steel plate removed, just remove and install the screws and clips in the same order and try it out before you put all your screws back into the steel plate since there are so many. Back window must be closed for wiper motor to work. To save yourself from replacing the motor with a new one, 9 out of 10 times it is simply the locking washer has come off of the gear inside the motor, if you pop off the plastic motor cover you will see the washer is off the gears are out of place. I realigned the gear and replaced the washer with a "C" clip and it has been working great for over a year!

SOURCE: 99 chevy silverado running rough and stalling.

the problem you are discribing would lead me to belive your fuel filter is clogged which is a simple fix 3 dollar part at any part store or on the worse hand your fuel pump itself could be weak you can open the gas tank cover and have another person turn the truck key to the on position without going far enough to start you will hear a faint whining noise if it is going bad or a louder noise if it is fine Good Luck

There is a linkage that connects the driver side and passenger side wipers so they can work in tandem. That linkage has either broken or come loose at the driver side wiper or the passenger side wiper. Check this link to see how wipers operate and then you can examine yours to see where the problem exists.

hi, im not sure if they would have a separate motor each because most vehicles have a linkage bar that connects the two wipers to keep them in time with each other. without the wipers on, try manually rotating the paasenger side wiper (be gentle) if that moves easily and the drivers side does not even flinch, then it could be a broken linkage. hope i helped!

Driver side wiper does not move; passenger side wiper crosses over it


In view of the answer from jchaffcom I feel that if there is a Hex on the end of the Wiper Arm the Hex Nut needs Tightened. I have a 2004 Silverado and this is what happened to it. Simply tightening the Nut solved my problem. Try it and get back to me with the results whether good or bad.

There was a recall on the control board to the wiper motor a few years ago, Check with the dealer and see if the recall is still active and if not you can fix it if you have a solder gun and some solder. The clip on the board where the wire harness clips on to go bad and needs to be re soldered. If you can not solder you can pick up the board from Auto Zone and the step by step instruction to replacing it. Good luck and hope this helps.
