Question about 1999 Ford Taurus
David Johnson gave me the answer that the wiper is slipping on the shaft so I would like a picture or diagram that shows where it may be slipping.
FixYa has no info & no pictures

If what David said is correct, you will have to go to a dealer
& purchase a new wiper arm, as the internal splines are stripped
You remove the rubber cap & use a 14mm wrench, to remove the wiper arm, on some ford products & take it & your VIN # to the
dealers parts dept

I had a similar problem the plastic in front of the windshield is the cowl. to remove it I had to pop plastic cover over nuts holding wiper arms. remove them then remove all the screws and two plastic pop retainers and a rubber strip and a number of slide on clips to remove the two piece cowl then remove the electrical plug on the motor and three hex head screws holding the assembly in place (if you extend the linkage toward passenger side it will be easier to remove the assembly) you can get
replacement bushings on line at www.rockauto.com I couldn't find them locally here but did find them
on line . the ones I got are wiper linkage bushings help part no 49451 they are difficult to remove so I cut the worn ones off then used a proper sized socket and c clamp to install the new ones

sounds like a loose nut. there are nuts that hold the wiper arms on, they may be under a cover but theyre at the base of the wiper arm. also there's a nut that holds the wiper linkage onto the wiper motor. if you can move the wipers independently, it's the nuts connecting the wiper arms.if you move one arm and the other moves with it, it's the nut holding the linkage to the motor.

Yes, I think that if you remove the cover to the wiper linkage, it will become apparent how to repair the linkage through either replacement, or by putting it back together, if a plastic joint came out of its socket.
Sometimes, too much ice can cause a plastic joint to pop out. In many cases, in my experience, it's not broken, but can be popped back together until it pops out again in inclement weather conditions.
If it is, in fact broken, then the joints can be purchased at your dealership for a nominal cost.
Good luck on this repair.

not that i know off but its not that difficult to remove the plastic cover under the windscreen ,remove the wiper arms then the torx headed screws and away you go shouldnt take more than 10 mins to gain access even for a novice weekend mechanic to accomplish
