Good Luck.

Windshield wiper motor comes on but wipers don't move...thinking that the assembly has come detached somehow. How does one get in to the area to take it all apart to re-attach?


At the base of the wiper arm there will be a plastic cover. Pull up on it an you will see a nut that holds the wiper arm to the post. Remove the nut and push down/up on the wiper arm to release it from the post. Once both wiper arms are removed you can remove the push pins that hold the cowl in place and remove the cowl. You will then have access to the wiper motor and linkages.

Windshield wipers will not move. Arms from motor


Hello

The windshield wiper linkage comes as an assembly. The assembly comes with the two rotating splines that the wiper arms attach to. you must remove wiper arms. Remove cowl trim and remove bolts that hold the pivot points to the body. The new linkage that snaps to the wiper motor should come with a new retaining clip. You have to fish the linkage assembly through the access holes in the body by un bolting the wiper motor.

Wiper arm drive assembly seems to be un hooked


Grab the right arm and move it by hand. If the arm moves and the splined post does not, the splines are propbably stripped, either on the arm or on the post.

If both the arm and the post move, the linkage under the cowl probably came off. You will need to remove both arms and unbolt the cowl cover to access the linkage.
