Only my driver side windshield wiper isnt working


at the base of the wiper arm theres a small cap to cover the point where the arm is mounted to the mechanism,remove the cap and tighten the nut ,you may have to loosen and tighten this nut a few times to adjust the arc of movement of the arm,ie,it may move too far across and foul the other wiper or too far down and foul the window lip,a bit of trial and error should see it working as good as new,
its nothing to do with fuses or electrics of any sort its just a loose nut on the wiper arm mount is all

Windshield wipers travel past the driver side window:


There is a tool for that, to take the spring tension off the arm

You can still wrestle it off, by lifting the arm off windshield
& on the arms right side & under it ,is a small tab you slide
out.

Then the arm comes off & you can reinstall in a different place

Drivers side windshield wiper won't move on my


Hello, There is a clip on the wiper motor which keeps the wiper rods on the motor. There is also an attachment for the other end of this rod on the backside of the wiper arm.

You need to grab the broken drivers wiper to see if the wiper rod is still attached to the wiper fixture just beneath the sheet metal where it is vented. You should be able to see the arms or rods through these slots in the sheet metal. This sheet metal is called a Cowling.

If the arm or rod moves on the drivers side when you shake the drivers wiper blade assembly, then the arm is attached underneath the Cowling and the small clip probably fell off of the other end of the arm/rod. It can be as simple as removing the wiper motor and replacing the clip.

You can not count on finding the original part. You would need to try an Autoparts store or the Dealer for the part.

If you do not want to fool with this yourself, you can go to a specialty Autoglass installer who should be able to service this and may have the part in stock. Some Autoglass shops even make Housecalls to a residence or business.

I always suggest that if you want to fix it yourself, some Auto Salvage yards let you pull the parts yourself. This is a great learning experience as you have an opportunity to break someone elses vehicle instead of your own. Then you can remove what you need and see how to do it.

I hope my solution is helpful to you.

HOW DO YOU ADJUST THE WIPER ARM TENSION HAD WINDSHEILD REPLACE AND NO WIPER IS BLOWING AROUND NOT CLEANING OF WINDSHEILD WHEN DRIVING OVER 45 MPH EVERYTIME A TRUCK GOES BY THE WIPER FLOPS


Hello: From your description of the problem it sounds like the wiper arm is bent. This could have occurred when the windshield was replaced. You might take truck back to who ever replaced windshield and DEMAND they correct the problem. The w/w arm will have to be replaced.

2002 ford crown vic. driver side wiper not working? passenger side works


the linkage between the wiper motor and the wiper arms needs to be replaced. the stud on the one side is stripped and that is why it doesn't work as it should. this happens usually when the wipers are left on in the winter with the blades freezing to the windsheild. turn on the car with frozen blades tends to strip out the teeth holding the wiper arms onto the linkage

Windshield wipers intermittent on 2002 Windstar


2002 Windstar wipers would come on by themselves, or not work set on intermittent, driver door lock would not work sometimes, ABS and brake light would come on sometimes, the problem was in the park switch inside the wiper motor. I replaced with wrecking yard wiper motor $44.95 w/13 month warranty. no more problem. check how many pins on connector plug, mine had 5 on the wiper motor side.Take the wiper assembly off of the metal cowl, 2 nuts, & I bolt, it is easier to snap the actuator pieces off of the wiper motor that way. God Bless JMR
