Question about 1997 Acura TL Series

Open Question

2001 Acura TL Windshield Wipers are slapping hard at both ends.

Both wipers are hitting pretty hard at both travel ends. Is there an adjustment for this? How do I access the adjustment if there is one? If I need to replace the motor, how do I access it? This is a 2001 Acura 3.2TL.

The glass shop probably put the arms back on in the wrong position. You can remove the arm and reset them at a different clock position and see if that helps.

Be sure to check your inter defogulators on your Pq model of your V6 engine. If you don't have a V6 or a later model, nothing can be done to fix this.

My 2000 Acura TL wiper arms bang the cowling and pillar. What is wrong


might be someone took the whole arm off to paint em or whatever so while they are in the off position check to make sure they don't need a quick adjustment for example if they are flat/level with the windshield lower seal if they are than you got the wrong size blades if they are off a little than remove clip holding the windshield wiper arm and slide off of the cog and move it a couple teeth till its flat than check your work by turning the wipers on if they aren't perfect than keep adjusting till they are on both sides

Windshield wipers travel past the driver side window:


There is a tool for that, to take the spring tension off the arm

You can still wrestle it off, by lifting the arm off windshield
& on the arms right side & under it ,is a small tab you slide
out.

Then the arm comes off & you can reinstall in a different place

Windshield wipers travel way to far on our 2001 subaru outback stationwagon. How do I shorten up the travel ?


I have the same problem with a 2001 Legacy wagon. The problem is not as simple as the solutions above. Mine are adjusted to park as low as possible when turned off. Even so, the blade on the drivers side goes all the way off the windshield. The Subaru dealer wants to replace the whole wiper blade transmission for about $450. Looking online it seems to be interconnecting arms and pivot points that connect the motor to the wiper blade arms.

When I turn on the windshield wipers they travel too far hitting the windshild pillar(top) and the the cowl(bottom).


The wipers are not installed correctly. Remove and reposition the wiper arms ,so they do not hit the side of the outside window pillar,when set to high speed.

1999 Acura TL - WIPER BLADES HIT HARD ON BOTH SIDES, IS THERE AN ADJUSTMENT OR JUST REPLACE THE WIPER MOTOR


I had this same problem. The wiper blades would extend too far and hit the edge of the car, or they wouldn't extend far enough and only wipe about 3/4 of the windshield. The problem was a broken Wiper Rod A. My local mechanic replaced it - the part was about $20 and the labor about $230. Have them look at wiper rod A

1993 jeep cherokee country series--replace windshield wipers


Are trying to remove the blade or the arms?

The arms are released by holding the wiper blade fully extended away from the winshield and wiggle the arms off.

The blades are removed by a little tab where the blade hooks to the arm,using a small screwdriver push down on tab,and slide blade off arm but do not let arm slap windshield as it could crack it,I have seen people pull and the blades suddenly come off and the arm slaps down,yor can put a towel or cloth down where the arm sits against the windshield to prevent the possibilty of the arm slapping down.

1996 Acura 3.2 TL windshield wiper problem


they have what one guy, I know called a small "transmision" that engages both wipers and the speed. On one car the winshield wipers transmission connections were loose. A small bolt came off.
Check all the workings by running the wipers .
Try to get to the wiper motor assembly and take a look at it. You may have to remove some screws.
