SOURCE: Windshield wiper linkage ball joint white knuckle cap is broken

This is a DIY fix for a dollar. The white plastic caps that join the wiper arms together in the wiper assembly commonly wear and break under normal use. 1984 - 1986 Honda CRX and Civics also used these plastic caps for a short time - much to my dismay. In my 2000 Subaru Legacy and Subaru Forester (should work on 2001, 2002, 2003, and 2004 models as well), there is an easy DIY solution that will take care of the excessive play in the wiper travel, as well as the common 'wiper clunk'.
Head over to your local auto parts store an purchase a PCV Valve grommet for a Toyota. Part number 42058. These are only a dollar, and are normally stocked on the shelf. If you put the phrase 'pcv valve 42058' into to Google Image Search you will see what I mean. I’m attaching a picture as well.
For installation, gain access to the wiper assembly, I recommend removing the entire assembly (arms and motor) from below the black trim piece under the windshield. Inspect all the joints. If you have a loose joint, remove the white plastic cap and the arm from the ball joint. Slide the PCV Valve Grommet over the ball joint and press the arm into the grommet. This is now a perfect, snug fit. Wiper blades slamming into the car is a thing of the past.

Their is a solution to the common saturn ion windsheild wiper problems. A new improved version of the wiper linkage is available and it has aluminum pivots instead of plastic. The plastic pivots were the weekest point of that linkage. I bought one oat this link and put it in myself. Awesome product

Take linkage loose and run wiper motor one turn. You've got the motor and linkage "out of time" .

sounds like the linkage came unhooked under the hood. Sometimes you can just pop it back on other times if its broke you will have to install a new linkage.

Its probably the stabilizer bar or part of it.
You can go to the auto parts online stores and look up suspension parts for your make and model to see photos of the parts.

Windshield wipers don't move, but hear motor running


check the nuts on the wiper arms and make sure they are tight. If the nuts are tight then a linkage on the wiper transmission probably came loose or broke. You'll have to pull some cowling off to access it.

I have a 2005 KIA Sedona, and the front wipers stopped. The fuse isn't blown and the wiper motor still works. Any idea?


I have 2002 Sedona, under the cowl the wiper linkage has a ball & socket that attaches the wiper linkage to the motor. Once in heavy snow this connection popped,I just snapped it back together and had no problem since.

Passenger side wiper not working on my 2001 blazer


There is linkage for the wipers under the vent that's below your windshield. Pull the vent off. You should see a socket and ball, probably on right hand side. Most likely the ball came out of the socket.

Windshield wipers stopped working on 1998 Nissan Sentra. Is it a fuse problem? If so, where is fuse box and which fuse? Is it a motor problem? is this an easy diy fix?


Water can enter and displace the grease in the wiper arm linkage ball joint where the wiper linkage attaches to the wiper motor linkage.

This can result in gradual wear over a period of time inside the joint that could lead to the separation of the wiper linkage assembly from the wiper motor linkage at the ball joint. A loss of windshield wiper function can result when this separation occurs.

To prevent grease from being washed out of the joint, the dealers will modify by adding a water diversion seal that will prevent water from entering the windshield wiper linkage ball joint area.

The wiper quit working


it sounds like the ball socket linkage has parted as you should not be able to move the wipers with ease.
