Keep in mind without a vehicle-- all your answers are just a guess

You can answer them also in your area of knowledge

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

SOURCE: ford f150 windshield wiper bushing diagram

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.

SOURCE: The windshield wiper linkage is

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.

Ware is the wiper module located on a 2000 crown victoria


Follow the Dark Blue/White wire or Brown/White wire from the Multifunction Switch to the wiper module according to the schematic.
Also, one can trace the wires from the windshield wiper motor to the wiper module by peeling away the wiring loom and looking for a Yellow/Red wire that leads to the module.

Wipers were frozen but would not work when thawed


if you turned them on when they were frozen then you may have damaged the motor or linkage to wipers. the first thing to do is to check your fuses to make sure the wiper fuse is good. if not then replace the fuse and try the wipers, also turn key on with engine off, turn wipers on and listen to see if you hear the wiper motor running if you do then maybe something came apart,most linkage snaps together, hope this helpscc019cf.gif

The wiper motor on my 1983 Ford Ranger still works but the wipers no longer move. I think there is a failure of the mechanical linkage. Where do I go to find repair parts?


why do you think the motor still works if the wipers don't move? Can you hear the motor run or can you see a little movement when you turn the switch on?

What happens when you activate the washers?

go to a salvage yard that allows you to remove the parts yourself. Then you can see how the motor and linkage assembly comes out.


don't have 1983 info, but here is 1994:
