2008 Subaru Outback rear window wiper does not work. Power goes back perfectly, so I thought it was the motor and bought a new one. Same problem: power goes right back to the plug, but motor does not work.

Hi there,
Very simple. Only one of a few things. First off. Push the up and down switch, listen, if there is a humming sound, your actuator may be fine. You window may be off track. If it is not off track, and there is a humming sound, then it may be the master switch. They are not that expensive. If it is not the master switch, the only other two things it could be is the up/down button or the connectors under the button. I hope that helped you out. Good luck and let me know. Have a great day.~MWD

Look for the fuse for the rear wiper motor is a 15 amp mini-fuse , in location # 8 of your POWER DISTRIBUTION BOX in the engine compartment. Check in the PD BOX for; - relay # 8 is the rear wiper down relay , and - relay # 10 is the rear wiper up relay .

Regarding a 2001 Subie outback. In intermittent and low speed my wipers travel the proper distance while on the highest setting the drivers side blade travels past the windshield. Any thoughts?


this issue is commonly caused by worn out bushings in the wiper linkage. They are fairly easy to replace just pop out the damaged one and match it up with a new one and pop it back in.
Below is a pic of the replacement ones that come in a multi pack made by dorman

Subaru wiper


guessing sucks, no? very expensive..!!! what year CAR?
ever heard of a $20 DMM that all have a voltmeter?
yes, use a volt meter.
if you had , you would have found that there was no
power to the motor, when activated.
the motors on all wipers are self sustaning of zero point.
that means that it self powers up inside with its one power switch.
so some need power on 2 pins, RTM read the FSM its there .
ever wonder why wipers keep going when turn off, that is it returns for FREE. bingo on self power I(no this is not free energy , lol)

there are only 2 pissible.
1: no power.
2:its jammed, same is true for all Elect motors, be it wiper , windows, fans, sure anything.

rear windows are pretty much not jammable but ive
never look inside the rear rear door of the not stated year, Subaru.
but if you look and see arms in there, bingo. they are jammed
one way to do this , done many a time.
is to release just the motor arm and then cycle the mechanism
by hand, oops , jammed.

no power, or jammed.

2001 Subaru outback driver side windshield wiper goes to far to the outside tears up the end of the blade - ideas please


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 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.

Rear window wiper doesn't work after going though a car wash. It was pointing straight down/


the nut may be loose, can you take wiper and just move it? check if the nut is loose at the base of the arm. Just point the arm where it should be and tighten the nut, 10MM. if its tight, there may be motor damage.

Rear window wiper doen sot work


I've done a few of these.The shaft that the wiper arm bolts to gets corroded inside, causing the motor to work slowly then quit.Have an assistant turn the key on and move the switch from on to off while you listen at the tail gate for a faint clicking..this tells you the wires and switch are likely OK. If you bring it to a shop have them double check power & ground before they replace the motor, just to be sure.A used motor may have the same issue...get new or remanufactured
