Question about 1996 Ford Crown Victoria
The drivers side wiper arm will not stay flat on the windshield. I can move the base of the arm up and down at the bottom where it attaches to the motor, which seems to be loose. This seems to be causing the wiper blade to not stay flat on the windshield to clean correctly.? How can I tighten it so the wiper arm lays flat and will clean the windshield? The passenger side does not have this play in it...thanks! Tony
Sometimes you need to bend the arm to put more pressure on the glass.

It will not be the motor, it will be the linkage or the wiper is slipping on the shaft, the lingkage is accsessible under the cowl, Hope this solves your problem and Merry Christmas

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.

The bar that connects to the arm that connects to the motor came off. Remove wiper motor to get to that connection, Autozone will have that part in there (help) line.

SOURCE: only one windshield wiper works
The splined fitting is pressed into the linkage. The fit became loose so that side will not operate correctly no longer. You will need to remove replace the complete linkage
