You could also see if the bolts holding the wipers on came loose from the snow and ice. Pop the cover off, loosen and straighten the wipers where they should be and tighten.

How do i adjust the wiper arms on a 2000 buick century limited they don't go all the way down were they are subpose to be.

The arms are placed on a splined connector. Remove the wiper and reinsert in onto the spline in the position that you want.

OR there could be a set screw that you loosen to accomplish the adjustment.

My winshield wipers are stuck up ward instead of down what so I need to repair this

the wipers till work but they will not park in the down position, correct?

The usual fix for this is to replace the wiper motor pulse board. You can find them at your local auto parts store for about $50

the wiper motor will be under the plastic cowl that is under the wipers arms. Once the wiper arms and cowl are removed you will see the wiper motor.

I can give you some more details if you would like to try to tackle this yourself. The wiper arms can sometimes be a challenge to remove and often require a small two jaw pulley to press them off from the posts. If you can get the wiper arms off the rest is a breeze as long as you have some basic tools and a set of torx bits.

Windshield wiper blades stick in upright position when turned off.

yes google this problem and you will find that under the wiper motor is a plate with a metal tab that should be bent @90 degees. over time it bends down and will not contact the oter metal plate on motor.. you need to remove cap holding wiper arms on then remove wiper arm, then remove plastic cowling, the remove plastic cover over motor, then u will see tab bend it back up and u will be fixed. mark wiper arm position on shaft so you assemble in the same position

2000 Buick Century, Spavinaw, OK, December 26, 2009, 13:21 driving home in snow storm and passenger side quit working , the drivers side works - cleared out all the snow and ice and still does not work...

Remove the wiper arm and check the serrated hub to see if it sheared a pin holding it to the shaft. If it is ok, then you may have a broken/loose part in the linkage. Good luck!

Wipers land in wrong position

I had the exact same problem with my 2000 buick century which i also bought used and after asking GM what it could possibly be they told me it was the whole wiper arm assembly which would be over $700 to replace. I decided to have a look myself and discovered that a small metal tab which makes the wipers park was bent and the mechanism was not engaging after turning the wipers off. i simply bent the tab back carefully and they parked again, saving me hundreds and it took about 15 minutes.

Open the hood and look where the wiper arms attach to the spindle. remove the caps covering the nuts, then remove the nuts. the hardest part here is most likely going to be getting those arms off. then remove the plastic grille under the right wiper arm (driver's side).

When you can get at the motor assembly, turn the wipers on and off and watch how it assembly operates and see if you can find the tab. This is the best picture i could find with google.

Once i found the tab i took a large flat head screwdriver and tapped it gently with a hammer to bend the tab back. you can tell when you turn the wipers on and off that they park properly. When it came time to put the wiper arms back onto the spindles i set them where they would be when turned off (resting in the plastic cradle at the lowest position).

I hope this was helpful. i know it was for me.

How do I remove my wiper arms on my 91 Buick Century?

If I remember correctly if you lift the wiper arm and push this clip in it will hold the wiper up and also release it from the transmission. You will have to wiggle the arm to get loose.

Good luck.....
