Question about 1996 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Wipers go too far at 50+ mph on my 2002 subaru impreza

At 50+ mph my driver side wiper goes too far and swipes right of the windshield and make a loud slapping noise. At 75+mph the wiper will actually swipe so far that it will extend its swipe right off of the car and then pop back on. Can I fix this without taking apart the entire dash board? And whether or not I have to take apart the dash board, what do I have to do when I get to the wiper motor?

Dont know the car BUT of all the different cars i have seen there are alot built like the following. you can remove the entire arm from the stud . most likely yours is made with a plastic cap covering a nut inside on the post the arm mounts to. a small flat screw driver should suffice to remove the plastic cap ( most likely you will need a 10mm socket to remove the nut) remove the cap and the nut. pull off the arm straight up off the post. notice the splined grooves on the post. put the arm back in place slightly in a better position on the splines and re install the nut and cap.
I hope this helps. I hope your is built this way because it would be a fast easy fix.

2001 Subaru Outback- my wipers stopped working in the middle of a snowstorm.


You will need to inspect the wiper transmission (this is the part the electric motor turns that swipes the wipers across the window) under the cowl in front of the windshield, it has most likely broken or come loose from link rod or the motor shaft connection came loose.

Subaru legacy wagon wiper fluid hose disconnected


Look up at your hood... there will be one hose running to the left side of the windshield, and one running to the right side. The right (Driver's) side goes down to a "T" connector, which is right near your master brake cylinder, but up on the hood itself... it connects back there. I couldn't figure it out either... luckily I have 2 Outbacks... a 1998 and a 2001... both connect the same way.

Windshield wiper linkage


This is a bit of an awkward one on that car, but you have to remove the wiper arms, then remove the retaining nuts on the spindles, the wiper motor and get to the inner wiper control arms. There's a chance that one of the nylon cups which connect the control/drive arms has popped off and simply needs to be reconnected.

2001 Subaru outback driver side windshield wiper goes to far to the outside tears up the end of the blade - ideas please


I have the same problem with a 2001 Legacy wagon. The problem is not as simple as the solutions above. Mine are adjusted to park as low as possible when off. Even so, the blade on the drivers side goes all the way off the windshield. The Subaru dealer wants to replace the whole wiper blade transmission for about $450. Looking online it seems to be interconnecting arms and pivot points that connect the motor to the wiper blade arms.

We have a 2002 pontiac grand prix gt with wet snow the windshield wipers came apart at the base (under cowling) got it fixed they work now but the driverside stops at 3/4 swipe then goes down. passanger...


While the wipers are in the parked state, just loosen off (or remove) the wiper arm from the drive spigot and re-position the driverside wiper arm to the correct position.
Re-tighten arm drive mount and all should be well.
