Question about 2007 Chevrolet Equinox LS

Open Question

The bolt for my driver side wiper arm is stripped

I pulled the arm off of the bolt and see the bolt moving so I know it's not the motor. When I looked at the bolt, it appears stripped. I put duct tape on it to let the arm have something to grip to and that seems to have worked. How do I replace that bolt?

SOURCE: Wiper arm not moving

Check the splines on the post where the wiper are mounts and make sure they are not rounded off. If they are intatct, remove the cowl (sheetmetal between the hood and windshield) and check the mechanical linkages that connect the wiper arms together

Try some Liquid metal inside the wiper arm let it set well before use. You can pick it up at Autozone or your local auto store.

My windshield wipers will not work but i hear the motor trying to work. what does this mean? are they totally broke or is there a simple fix?


Sounds like the link rod has popped off or the wiper arm nuts need tightened. When the wipers freeze to the windshield and you start the wipers to clear the snow this will either strip out the wiper arms or pop the linkage rod off. Always pull the wipers away from the windshield before you start the wiper motor in cold weather to be sure they are not frozen to the windshield. Ok how to repair. Grab the wiper arms and see if they freely move in thier normal pattern with power off. Do they move independantly of each other ? If your lucky the nut holding the arms to the pivot just needs tightened. At the base of each arm is a black cover you have to pry up th see the nut. If not remove the wiper arms and inspect to see if they are stripped out. If they are stripped out bad enough you may have to replace them. If not then the linkage has popped off beneath the drainage grill. To see the link rods move look down thru the grill with the wiper motor running and the wiper arms off and you may see the rod flopping around. Now pry the plastic grills off, with the power off, left side first to get to the rod. Look to see if the plastic retainer in the end that fell off is still ok if so just line it up and give it a smack to pop it back on to the ball stud. If the shaft that is installed onto the motor is spinning but not moving the rod the motor must be replaced. Oopen hood and remove three bolts holding the motor to the firewall to remove it. Just reverse the process to reinstall. Thanks for asking at Fixya.com.

Where is windshield wiper motor for 1992 mercury grand marquis


1992-98 Vehicles
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the rear hood seal. Remove the wiper arm assemblies by raising the wiper blade off the windshield. Move the slide latch away from the pivot shaft and slowly lower the arm onto the latch. This unlocks the arm from the pivot shaft and holds the blade off the glass. Pull the arm from the pivot shaft.
  3. Remove the cowl vent screws and disconnect the washer hoses from the washer jets.
  4. Detach the electrical connectors from the wiper motor.
  5. Remove the wiper assembly attaching screws, lift the assembly out and disconnect the washer hose.
  6. Unsnap and remove the linkage cover.
  7. Remove the wiper module assembly retaining bolts and remove the module from the vehicle.
  8. Remove the linkage retaining clip from the motor operating arm by lifting the locking tab and pulling the clip away from the pin.
  9. Remove the motor retaining screws and remove the motor from the vehicle.
  10. The installation is the reverse of the removal.

see if the transmission arms for the wiper motor are moving when the wiper motor is on. The bolts that hold the arms to the motor may be loose or stripped out from the heavy know. The threads for these bolts are thin and don't take much to strip.

Driver side wiper does not move; passenger side wiper crosses over it


In view of the answer from jchaffcom I feel that if there is a Hex on the end of the Wiper Arm the Hex Nut needs Tightened. I have a 2004 Silverado and this is what happened to it. Simply tightening the Nut solved my problem. Try it and get back to me with the results whether good or bad.

The passenger side windshield wiper has quit working.The driver side still works.


You will need to remove the plastic vent to access the motor. The motor should be held in by 2 or 3 bolts.

If the motor turns and wiper doesn't, that means the motor shaft is stripped and you will have to pull arm off shaft and use JB Weld and place on shaft , than replace arm and let dry for a day. OR replace motor.
