Question about 2002 Lincoln Town Car

2 Answers

Wipers on 2002 Lincoln quit working

My windshield wiper motor has been making noise for some time and now today finally quit working. Where is the motor located? I don't see it from the engine compartment....do you have to go through the dash to get at it? I've been dreading this ever since it started making noise. Funny how when I was in the Navy I could fix anything on an airplane but when it comes to cars I'm lost.....probably because all the automobile people keep secrets so you have to keep coming back to them to get anything fixed.

    I finally got mine fixed....I had to use some break-free rust penetrator on the studs then wiggle like crazy. The wiper arms were just stuck with corrosion. No special tool. Just be careful you don't bend the shaft. Once the arms were off the plastic shield comes off easy and the motor is underneath. Been awhile since I did it....so I don't remember how much the motor was. Dave Bock.

Hi, your windshield wiper motor needs to be replaced. The wiper motor on your car in located under the hood. Follow the windshield. At the bottom towards the center, under the hood, you will see a large piece of plastic that runs from the center to the fender. This needs to be removed to get to the motor. Once removed, you will see the motor the "arms" attach too. Unfortunately the "transmission" or arms have to be removed from the motor before the three motor screws come off. If there is rust at the contact point, or if the contact point is seized from corrosion/rust, try a rust loosening lubricant, but don't bend the arms from using too much force. Also be careful not to crack the windshield if your using a breaker bar under the arm to disengage it from the motor. After the arms are disconnected, remove the three screws holding the motor in place, and remove the electrical connection to the motor. When buying a new or rebuilt motor, make sure to bring the bad one in to compare, especially the length of the part where the arms attach. This has to be exactly the same, not longer or shorter. Prices around here in the midwest run about $65 for new motor.

My 2002 Lincoln Town Car also needs a new wiper motor. However, I took my car to my friends' house , he is a great mechanic,, however,, we (he) could not get the wipers off so that the plastics could be removed to get to the motor. He thinks we need a removal tool ,, is that so or are we on the wrong path here? How should the wiper arms be removed so that we may continue with this process? Thanks,, Gary Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Chevy S-10 1994 Wipers don't work at all...cruise works, turn signals work, but no wipers. Fuse is fine


Park you car in a quite location.

Engine off

Turn wiper to high and listen for the motor rotation noise near the firewall (near the bottom of the windshield)

If you hear the motor rotation noise and the wipers are not moving then it's the linkage and/or the motor clutch.

Get to it ASAP. A loose bolt connection can damage the linkage arm or clutch.

It's time consuming to replace these hard to reach park.

Windshield wipers won't work. Ford 2002 ZX2


The actual assembly arm that you turn on your windshield wiper (that says all of the controls on it) was bad and was causing the fuses to blow and burning up the motor. It was replaced and it works now as well as the a/c and heat which was not working before this fix.
