Drivers side windshield wiper won't move on my

Hello, There is a clip on the wiper motor which keeps the wiper rods on the motor. There is also an attachment for the other end of this rod on the backside of the wiper arm.

You need to grab the broken drivers wiper to see if the wiper rod is still attached to the wiper fixture just beneath the sheet metal where it is vented. You should be able to see the arms or rods through these slots in the sheet metal. This sheet metal is called a Cowling.

If the arm or rod moves on the drivers side when you shake the drivers wiper blade assembly, then the arm is attached underneath the Cowling and the small clip probably fell off of the other end of the arm/rod. It can be as simple as removing the wiper motor and replacing the clip.

You can not count on finding the original part. You would need to try an Autoparts store or the Dealer for the part.

If you do not want to fool with this yourself, you can go to a specialty Autoglass installer who should be able to service this and may have the part in stock. Some Autoglass shops even make Housecalls to a residence or business.

I always suggest that if you want to fix it yourself, some Auto Salvage yards let you pull the parts yourself. This is a great learning experience as you have an opportunity to break someone elses vehicle instead of your own. Then you can remove what you need and see how to do it.

I hope my solution is helpful to you.

What is the trick to change the back 3 spark plugs?

The best way i found on my 95 windstar is to remove the cowl panel below the windshield,you need to remove the wipers and screws holding the panel in place,also unscrew the antenna ,underneath you will see another plastic panel holding the wiper motor,this needs to be removed too by removing the 8mm attaching bolts around the edges and middle,also unplug the wiper motor, then simply lift the panel off to reveal the whole engine bay giving you easy access to everything,although this sounds alot of work it actually only takes about 15 minutes to do so.
