Usally the motor is under the bonnet and the arms are in the front air intake in front of the windshild. Sedans are difficult to get out and need to be timed when replaced. I hope this helps.

The passenger side windshield wiper stopped working but the motor is good & driver side works

the wiper arm may have come loose from the motor linkage , where the arm joins the linkage outside of bonnet/hood there is a flip up cap , under there is a nut that holds the wiper arm in position , this may be loose so remove completely then remove the arm as the splines may not be in the correct position, replace the arm so that when it is laid back down on windscreen it is level with the bottom and tighten the nut , you must tighten the nut with the wiper arm raised so as to get a good fit , this may require a couple of attempts to get in the exact position when wiper arm is laid back down, hope that makes sense

I have a 1999 hyundai accent and the wipers havnt worked in a while, its been sitting in the garage for a bit but i dont know what is wrong, i believe it is the wiper motor but im not sure. when i turn the...

You know it sounds like a break in the linkage as the wiper motor will not usually let you freely move the wiper arms yourself. Generally there is an arm attached to the motor which in going around and around makes a side to side action in the wiper linkage. Without any more info I would suspect a failure in the ball joint connection between the wiper motor arm and the linkage. On a car that old most likely you should look around for a replacement used linkage on eBay or Craigslist. Once obtained, get yourself a repair manual or search on youtube for a video on how to remove and replace the linkage. there are many folks selling repair manuals on CD for about 10 bucks on eBay.

One windscreen wiper stopped working on my mx-5. It's not moving at all.

The wiper arm could have come loose from the driving shaft. Lift it off the screen and see if it mooves backwards and forwards freely. Lift the cover at the bottom of the wiper arm and see if the nut is loose. If it is tighten it and hope that the splines aren't worn off the wiper arm and the shaft. If the wiper arm and the shaft are well attached, one of the linkage points might have come loose or one of the shafts might have broken. It will be obvious. Before you start stripping plastic covers to get to the motor, run the wipers with the arms off the windscreen and listen out for odd noises.

Trying to change windshield wiper motor

If you take off the wiper blades, then remove the plastic covering under the windscreen, the motor is underneath it. All it will be is two maybe three bolts and an electrical connector.

Refitting windscreen wiper linkage

Good evening Kah2110,

I assume you have replaced the linkage by now and all is fine?

I have freed a sticking spindle (driver side) but now find I can't seem to get the wipers arms positioned properly - did you find that there is a sequence/procedure to follow?

Many thanks

Please reply to and not this email addresss.

Many thanks
