The cone needs to be replaced on the wiper shaft. the teeth are stripped out or the wiper blade teeth are stripped out pull the arm off and see if the cone on the shaft coming out of the cowling has lines in it, if it does look at the wiper arm if it does not have the lines in it then the wiper will need to be replaced.

How do I change wiper blades 2001 Chevy blazer


Open the cap at the end of the windshield wiper arm at the cowl of the Blazer. This will reveal the bolt that secures the wiper arm to the wiper linkage.
Unbolt the wiper arm using a 3/8-inch ratchet and socket. Place the bolt to the side, as you will reuse it later.
Pull the wiper arm up at the blade so that the blade of the wiper is pointing into the air. Then pull at the base of the arm, wiggling it slightly. It's a keyed gear, so it may take a little bit of workunderlined.png?1 to break it free, but with the right amount of wiggling, it will disengage.

    2004 Jeep rain sensing wipers continue to run regardless of setting or amount of rain


    a couple of thoughts:
    Has your windshield just been replaced?
    The sensor is up by the rear view mirror, is it plugged in all the way?
    Do you have the right size wiper blades on your vehicle? (too short of a blade misses the rain sensor and does not wipe it clean)
    How good are your blades? ( as above, to turn off the rain sensor the blade needs to wipe it clean)
    The rain sensor works by projecting multiple inferred beams to the inside of the windshield, like a prism, they reflect back to collectors. when there is a water droplet on the outside of the windshield it changes a beams trajectory and it misses the collector thust turning on the wipers.
    (yes, this all happens in that little sensor up by the rear view mirror.)
    check to make sure the wiper switch is in the right position.
    also....I've seen rain sensors not work properly when the hood or doors are open.
    hope this helps

    Windshield wipers turn on by themselves for 2 or 3 swipes and turn off by themselves


    These are "rain sensing" wipers and will occasionally do this based on the sensitivity setting and the amount of light outside. Most of the time the system works fairly well, I sometimes leave the wipers off if it's dry out.

    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.

    THE WINDSHIELD WIPER ON MY ELANTRA KEEPS COMING LOOSE AND STOPS WORKING. IS THERE A REASON IT KEEPS DOING THIS? IT DID THIS ON THE HIGHWAY WHEN IT WAS POURING AND I COULDN'T SEE A THING I ALMOST HIT A...


    Use Locltite brand thread lock compound (made by LOCKTITE CORP) on the bolts and nuts, it comes loose because the motor constantly is worked back and forth as the wipers swipe, it is availiable at any auto parts store, use the red stuff, the bolts will never come loose again.
