This doesn't sound like a motor problem but a gear stripped. The motor and gear are normally sold and installed as a single unit. See if you can move the arm manually. If you get a lot of slop it could be a stripped gear. Turn the wipers on and move the arm manually. It may catch and than stop at the broken part of the gear.

I replaced a wiper motor on a 2003 cavalier. After replacing it. The wiper arms swing down before going up across the windshield.I want to know what do in need to adjust so the wipers work correctly.


The part that is attached to the wiper motor is in the wrong location. Remove the nut or bolt that attached the wiper transmission to the motor and remove the short arm from the wiper motor. Turn the wiper motor on and then off. wait until it stops moving. Set the wiper arms to the correct "home" position. Reattach the wiper transmission arm to the wiper motor.

Timing is off. Unlikely they replaced two motors(which hold the module) and they are bad. One other possibility is the wiper switch in the turn signal switch.

Replacing wiper arm


Most of the time you can move them into place by hand and re-tighten the nut that hold them down. They tend to slip from being turned on when frozen, stripping the center.

2004 Pontiac Montana. The wipers start but then stop after moving just a little and then go back down. They do not come up all the way.


Hello Sebpgood.

O yes, the notorious GM van wiper problem.
The clutch mechanism on the wiper motors are difficult to say the least.
The spline on the shaft from the wiper motor may have slipped putting the wiper motor to wiper transmission out of synchronization.
These are tricky to get back in time.
Also there is a tab on the crank arm designed to catch the clutch that wears and/or bends down and will not allow proper operation.
Most of the time I replace the crank arm assembly as they are prone to wear.
Check all the parts on the wiper transmission for siezed pivots and bent arms.
I hope this helps you towards a repair.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Windshield wipers move only inches


The arm is probubly loose on the motor...I had the same problem...open the vent area below the windshield under the hood ...remove the drivers side wiper arm and see if the motor is completely turning...if so check the connector arm is on and tight..the pivot ball may have worn oblong...or it just loosened up...pretty easy fix

Drivers side wiper quit proper function. Driver side wiper only moves a few inches. Motor probably needs replacement. 99 chevy silverado p/u


some wiper arms fit over a splined pivot post. When you tighten the nut down, the splines cut into the wiper arm thus holding it tight and keeping it from slipping on the post.
You may just need to tighten the wiper arm down r replace the wiper arm. Does it have a cover that you can rotae up and expse the nut?
