Wipers slip the front wiper blades 'slip' - the bolt turns but the blade arm assembly slips - if i lock the nut too tight it doesn't move, but if i loosen the nut the blade stays still while the bolt rotates back and forth.

95 sentra wiper motor runs wipers won't move, how do I remove the arm?


First lift wiper blade up off the windshield like you would when changing the blades.It should stay up by itself, then look under the end that mounts over the shaft, it's a shaft end that the wiper arm goes on, it's splined so it wont slip when in motion. But you should be able to pry up on it and it should pop right off. Just look at it first to make sure theres not a bolt or nut holding it down, some of the wipers are mounted that way and the nut or bolt is covered right at the end, usually it will come up with a lil nudge, Just look it over good and you will see how the cover is held down. If theres no cover hiding a nut , then you would just pry up on it to remove. good luck!

Driver side wind sheild wiper not working - passenger side wiper okay. driver side moves a little.


You have an assembly of arms that hook to motor one for each side sounds like your left one has come loose or is at least slipping you will have to remove the crowl panel at the wipers to check .The wiper is held on by a nut. The nut is under a plastic cover at the pivot point of the wiper. Loosen the nut then align the wiper blade where it's supposed to be then tighten the nut.Its not adjusted right, remove the nut that holds your left wiper on, then pry it off the shaft, lift the wiper up all the way then just pull up straight off the shaft, then put it back on so it starts at the left lower edge of the windshield.---- First, start by checking the nut at the base of the wiper arm, if it is good and tight, then you have to remove the cowl and check the wiper linkage.If the linkage has come apart then you will have to replace the piece that has come loose.------
Getting, this possibilities checked will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

I have a 2000 vw jetta, when i turn on wiper blades i can hear the motor but the blades are not engaged


Wiper motor arm disengaged or slipping on drive shaft.

Wiper arms slipping on splines at pivot point of wiper arm.,,,more likely.

Wipers are held to drive splines with a 10mm nut.

Make sure wipers are in in 'parked' position buy turning on ignition and making sure wiper switch is OFF.

Turn off ignition.

Pry off the black round plastic cover off the arm where it attaches at the splines. ( Drive splines on lower windshield cowl.)

Tighten nut/s.

Windshield wiper not moving.motor works.wiper was iced up,turned them on and they started to move then popped.wiper motor works and wipers seem to move a little.


open the hood and at the base of the wiper arm is a little balck cap, remove this cap and under it is a nut. this nut holds the wiper arm tight onto a spline. check to see if the nut has backed off or needs to be tightened. if not remove the nut and take off the wipers, the black cowel (at the bottom of the windshield) is held on with three plugs.(one in the middle and one on each end.) and one large plug below the passanger wiper blade. the wiper assembly and motor is under this cowel.
hope this helps

I am having trouble with my wiper blades. They move slightly when I turn them on, but they dont move all the way up. Any suggestions?


Pop the hood and remove the covers of the bolts that mount your wipers to your vehicle. Run the wipers and check the nut on the bolt. Chances are good that the bolt is slipping. Grab a ratchet or box wrench and tighten the nut. Should solve your problem. Good luck!

Just pull off the arm at the gear near the base of the wiper. When you put it back on, you can reposition it.

Cant take off the windsheild wipers


Here is the procedure to remove the wiper motor. It says to remove wipers by removing the nut covers then remove the wiper nuts. Is this what your talking about?
If your talking about the wiper arms they just pop off at the swivel.
Use this link for info on removing blade assy.
