Question about 1992 Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

Can a layperson fix the windshield wiper motor(s) on the 92 dakota? My sons truck wipers have issues. The passenger side doesn't work at all. The driver's side wiper sounds horrible and seems like it's on its last leg. I want to replace the motors. I'm a single mom, kinda handy, but need guidance. Can I fix it or is this something "better left to the experts?"

Most people think women can't be handy around the house, this is not true, I think this type of mentality should be abandoned. You can do it. The procedure for this should be similar to other cars with slight variation. The main thing to remember is to put marks before you take them apart, because wipers once missalighned is difficult to figure out. You can use something than will write a thin line on the metal parts. When you put them back together you just align the marks you made. Also take a few notes, or even better yet take photo with your cam phone just in case you forget how they go together. If your cell phone don't have a cam, just take notes. You know most cam phones take pretty good pictures that can be blown up on a computer. Well I hope this is helpfull, and always trust yourself. You can do more than you ever think possible.

I've got a 2000 dodge dakota i need to see what position does the windshield wiper arms need to be in after i replace the wiper motor


Hi.

It's pretty easy, you do not need to know the position, the wiper motor always return to it's origin, just activate the wiper motor by briefly using the washer fluid switch for instance, let it finish it's movement. Next, you want to place the wiper arm with the longest blade on the driver side. Now for the height, most car's wiper sit from 0.5 to 1 inch above the base of the windshield so that should be what you're aiming for, if the wiper arms pinion has splines, try to pick the one closest to the windshield but not too close of course and repeat the same steps for the passenger side. Now you should check the wiper arm operation for collision, incorrect height or travel distance and adjust the wiper arm position accordingly. By the way, if you're lucky your windshield may have mark on the base of the tinting of the windshield to indicate the height of the wiper blade

One windshield wiper not working


Maybe the nut that hold the wiper to the linkage is either loose or stripped? The linkage itself is bad?

I think your wiper motor is fine because the passenger side works and uses the same motor to move the wipers.

sounds like the connecting rod between both wiper arms either broke or one of the keepers popped off under the connector for that arm..since the wiper system IS NOT designed to wisk snow off the window once accumulated, this can an does happen.. even seen motors get burned out doing this..cleaning the window first will save this issue and the equiptment. need to acess this arm<take off the vented peice below the windshield and everything should be visible there..repost findings

2006 hhr passenger side windshield wiper not moving but drivers side is fine??


First remove the complete passenger side wiper check and make sure splines on wiper are not stripped. If this is not the problem It could be a linkage bar from the wiper motor to the wiper off or disconected. Since both wipers share the same motor if one works the other should. Check this by removing both wipers and then "Cawl" (little black piece between the hood and windshield underneath the wipers) Underneath the cawl you should be able to see the windshield wiper motor, and linkage bar to both of the wipers. See if the bar is disconected from the passenger side. If it is than reconnect it. These are the only two possible scenarios.
