SOURCE: 2003 Ford Explorer-Rear Wiper Motor-How to Replace?

the plastic panel pops off , if you had a trim removal tool it would be nice but it can be improvised , they are just tension clips , get some kind of lever behind the panel and give it a pop , once the plastic panel is off its pretty much self explanatory from there , a connector and couple small bolts , now the outside has nut under the w/w blade , a piece of the arm cover pops up to access the nut , remove w/w arm , then a grommet and under the grommet is a bigger nut that helps hold the motor onto the door/hatch , when reinstalling before you put the w/w arm back on run the wiper and make sure it shuts off and in the park position . should be a piece of cake .

SOURCE: How do you remove the wiper arm on a 94 Dodge Ram

throw a grenade at it and hopefully the arms will fly off, whatever happened to a nut on a threaded flange to hold wipers on. No wonder imports own the market.

How do you change the cabin filter in a 2003 jeep grand cherokee limited, V8 4.7 L


Your cabin filter is located beneath the cowl that is located under your passenger wiper arm. To get to your cabin filter, first you must remove your passenger wiper arm. Remove the wiper blade arm by pulling off the cap that is over the nut, and using a socket to remove the nut. Now pull up on your wiper arm, and allow it to pivot up wards. Push down at the arm, to force the female end off of the shaft of the wiper motor. It may help to have the hood open while removing the arm.
Once the passenger wiper arm is off, with the hood open, carefully begin removing the rubber seal from the plastic cowl. The seal becomes weaker as it ages, and can tear easily.
With the seal out of the way, you can begin to disassemble the plastic cowl. I believe comes off by pulling up/forward, carefully not to break the plastic clips underneath. Start from the outside, and work your way towards the center of the windshield. Now the cabin filter and housing can be removed from beneath the cowl. Reverse procedure to install.
Please let me know if I may further assist you. -TXTEXAN

The mechanism on the wipers to make them move came off, how do we get to them to repair.


Hello, there is a clip that holds the rods onto the motor. You can get it at the Dealer or a Salvage yard. The rods themselves are called a "wiper transmission" and it connects the motor to the stubs under the windshield.

Most of the time the wiper motor is removed and it gives you enough room to slip the connectors together. The clip can be installed on the motor by moving the blades to give slack at the motor.
If you need to change the wiper transmission, you need to remove the fasteners on the wiper stubs topside and pull the assembly through. Many times the top cowling has to come off.

That is the part which is vented and directly below the windshield. There should be screws under the hood and sometimes recessed in the cowling. Then connect the motor and reinstall everything.

Windshield wipers not working


there are little tabs at the end of the arm where it attaches to the wiper trans. if you bend the arms up at the hinge and swing those tabs out the arms will stay up (a small screw driver can be used to move the tabs if they are stuck. A 1/8 screwdriver is a good choice, $4 at sears). once those tabs are out and the arms are holding themselves up just pull. you may need to rock them back and forth a bit but they should just pull off.

To remove the wiper motor itself:
1993 Aerostar/Ranger/Explorer
  1. Turn the wiper switch on. Turn the ignition switch on until the blades are straight up. Then, turn ignition off to keep them there.
  1. Disconnect battery and wiper motor electrical connector.
  1. Remove the right wiper arm and blade.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  1. Remove the right pivot nut and allow the linkage to drop into the cowl.
  1. Remove the linkage access cover, located on the right side of the dash panel near the wiper motor.
  1. Reach through the access cover opening and unsnap the wiper motor clip.
  1. Push the clip away from the linkage until it clears the nib on the crack pin. Then, push the clip off the linkage.
  1. Remove the wiper linkage from motor crank pin.
  1. Remove nut and ground strap.
  1. Remove three attaching nuts from wiper motor. Remove the motor.

The Wiper Arms are rusting. I want to remove them


The arms themselves are bolted down to the car at the base. Once you pop the hood, you should be able to see the bolts, or you may need to pull back the plastic cover to get to the bolts....

Wipers won't shut off


I had the same problem. The problem is in the switch (wiper, turn signal, hi-beam, hazard switch - multi-function switch). The part number is S14349 from BWD. My wipers wouldn't turn off and sometimes headlights wouldn't turn on unless I held the hi-beam switch back for about 5 seconds. After I changed the multi-function switch, the wipers still came on twice, but have been fine since (about a month). I don't know if it helped, but after I changed the switch, I pulled the top cover off the wiper motor housing (under hood against firewall right in front of driver - you have to remove hood weather stripping on top of firewall), checked the electrical connection to motor and also pulled up on ground strap checking the make sure I had good contact with the grounding strap. After I checked all that, the wipers came on once by themselves but I could actually turn them off and they have been fine since (don't know if there was some type of memory that caused the wipers to come on after I changed the switch, but they have been fine since then). Hope this is helpful.
