Usually wipers just need to be cleaned. They develop a crust of dirt along the edge which spoils the smooth wiping edge. Try cleaning the edges thoroughly with a nylon kitchen scrubber. Most auto parts stores will assist you to change them if you buy the wipers there.

How to replace a 99 se Bonneville windshield wiper motor


Windshield wiper motors are generally easy to replace. You need to remove the windshield wipers and take off the small grill panel above the hood and under the windshield. You should see the motor in there. It simply unbolts and unplug the electrical connector and replace it with a new one.

Wipers dont work


If you are positive that your problem is ONLY the motor, these directions won't help.

However, if your windshield wipers do work, but when you turn them "off" they won't return to their resting place (which is at the bottom of your windshield, next to the hood) - instead they just stop straight up on your windshield, here's how to fix that using only a couple of screwdrivers.

What has caused that? You were probably your using the wipers to remove snow or snow and ice from your windshield instead of using your window scraper! Unfortunately the wiper bracket (it's the piece having a tab that has been bent) on many Oldsmobiles isn't strong enough to remove even light snow and/or ice.

Your windshield wiper motor has a mounted bracket over it that has a little metal tab (a "Park Tab") on it that the crank arm assembly has to "hit" in order to "park" the wipers in the correct position. The Park Tab is not covered up - it's part of the mounted bracket - out in the open, and you can see it.

In a many cases this "park tab" is either bent or broken, and if it's bent can be adjusted using a screwdriver back to its original position. It it has broken off, the part that holds that tab will need to be replaced. (I had a bent tab twice and two repair shops said I needed an entirely new motor, when I didn't.)

Go to this link: http://redhouseon7th.com/redhouse/howto/2009OldsmobileWiperRepair/index.html then follow its directions - they are excellent and simple. The link has pictures to show you exactly what to do, step-by-step showing pictures of what it looks like at each step. The only tools you will need are a couple of screwdrivers, and you don't need to replace the motor IF your windshield wipers are "stopping" in or near the "12 o'clock" position. And the "fix" costs are zero. (The repair shop charged me $850.00 the first time I had the problem.)

It's a problem with many Oldsmobiles - the bracket with the "park tab" should have been made stronger in the first place. After my first repair cost, I looked up directions and fixed it the next time. I live in Iowa, and I now always use my snow/ice scraper every time instead of my windshield wipers, and have had no more problems. I love my Intrigue!

Hope your problem is solved! Best wishes!

2007 hyundai entourage windshield wiper motor linkage?


While I was changing out struts on my 2007 Entourage, I had to remove the wiper motor. It was easy to do it, 4 - 10mm bolts and it was out.

Getting to the motor took a little more work but is not impossible. You have to remove the windshield vent cover (not sure what it's called), it's located at the bottom of the windshield, and when the hood is up, you can remove the wiper arms and those trim pieces and get to the motor easily.

This is a good general video that will show you how to roughly remove everything, granted this is a strut replacement video, but the beginning is what would be important to you: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UpSIv3mk98k
Hope that helps!

Windshield Wipers Not Working - Things to Check
To troubleshoot car windshield wiper problems, you need to thoroughly investigate problems with any of its operating parts. Here are some of the things that you need to check to determine why are your car windshield wipers not working.
Check Wiper Motor
The wiper motor is the driving force of the windshield wiper. Feel the motor and listen to a humming sound. If there is no humming, the motor is the problem. Check if the motor is working properly and see to it that its electrical connections are made properly. If you find that the motor is dead and beyond repair, get it replaced immediately.
Check For Break in Connecting Wires
The connecting wires of the motor sometimes go loose and that may cause the windshield wipers to stop working. Also check the battery plug connection which the motor has. Connecting the loose wires properly or fixing/replacing the plug might solve your problem.
Check Wiper Switch
Another wiper assembly part that can malfunction is the wiper switch itself. Check for switch malfunction and if you find that is indeed the problem, get it replaced from a mechanic.
Check for Bent Wiper Arms
Bent wiper arms can cause the operation of the wipers to be hampered. If the wiper arms are bent beyond repair, get them replaced immediately.
Check For Blown Out Car Fuse
A blown up car fuse could be the culprit that has stopped the windshield wipers from working. Check the fuse assembly under the dashboard of the car. Replacing a blown fuse might fix the problem of windshield wipers not working.
Windshield Wiper Sprayers Not Working - Things to Check
Sometimes the windshield wiper sprayer stops working which can be very annoying. The washer mechanism is a self cleaning mechanism for the windshield. Here are some of the things that you need to check in case it is not working.
Check Windshield Washer Motor
The windshield washer mechanism might have been impaired due to the malfunctioning of the wiper washer motor. Check if its working and get it replaced if it is beyond repair.
Check Windshield Washer Fluid Level
Sometimes the washer doesn't work because the washer fluid levels are not filled to requisite levels. Filling in fluid might restore normal functioning.
Check For Broken Washer Hose
The connecting washer hose that connects the reservoir to the nozzle, might be broken or worn out stalling the overall operation. Check the hose for leaks and get it replaced.
Check Washer Nozzle For Clogging
Last thing to check is the nozzle of the washer for clogging. An obstruction in the washer nozzle might be the reason for windshield wiper sprayers not working. Using a pin, clean the clogged nozzle. This might restore the sprayer to the normal working condition.

Hi there,

Well you can please follow the below steps -
1. Lift the wiper arm away from the windshield. If the tension spring is damaged or broken, the arm will not show resistance. If it is functioning properly, then pull the arm back until the hinge locks in a vertical position.
2. Remove the retaining nut at the base of the windshield wiper arm and pull the wiper arm off.
3. Slide the new wiper arm assembly on.
4. Tighten the retaining nut and lower the arm back down to the windshield.
Please post comments for any other help or information......

Good Luck!!

Thanks
