SOURCE: 04 dodge ram 1500 wiper arm goes down before going up

remove wiper arms at the shaft, right at the cowl. each will have a nut on them but it is covered by a piece of plastic that will snap up for access. take nuts off and remove wiper assembly. turn key on turn wipers on make sure shafts turn when on, then turn off the shafts to stop in park position. then reinstall wiper assemblies in their park position .

SOURCE: I have a 2002 Montana and the wiper blades end up

If the wipers end up in the vertical position and they are the HIDE type usually its the park mechanism mounted on top of the wiper motor that the linkage attaches to, there is a small spring loaded lever on the bottom of this device that wears out and fails to activate the PARK position proccess when the wipers are turned off. When the wipers turn off the motor reverses and the lever is meant to catch on a tab and compress the mechanism pulling the wipers to the park position. Only thing I know what to do is replace this mechanism, ($150. new 25. used)

SOURCE: wiper blades stuck in up position on my 2005 Hyandai Tucson

Disconnect the wiring harness to the motor and check for power and ground with a 12 volt test light. If they both are good, the wiper motor has most likely failed.

Can the wiper linkage cause the wipers to park vertical. Wipers work fine on all settings. Tried repositioning the wiper arms but it didn't work


normally if the wiper arms park in the wrong place , it is the fitting of the wiper arms on the pivot that is wrong
try pulling the wipers back off the windscreen , run them through a cycle and then switch off normally
that will be the park position in the motor gear box
then remove each arm from the pivot and re- position it about 1" from the bottom of the screen
that will be the parked position for the wiper blades
having done that then again pull the arms back of the screen and cycle as if wiping the screen
switch of and see where the arms now park on the screen
if it is close to where you set them then that is the park position
next run the wipers a cycle and see if at full movement one arm puts the blade over the edge of the screen or hits the edge
switch off and re-position that arm closer to the bottom of the windscreen
it is time consuming but the only way to park wipers properly as there is no master spline to set in the correct position
If they park any where after this exercise ,replace the wiper unit as there is a problem in the contacts in the motor box.

I need to have 'step-by-step' instructions for replacing the driver side windshield wiper arm on my 2000 Ford Explorer. Can you help me with this?


  • Turn your wipers off, using the stalk on the left side of your steering column. Turn your ignition off and remove the key.

  • 2

    Pull the wiper blade up to lift it to the service position. Pull the front part of the blade down to position it at an angle.

  • 3

    Pull back the lock pin on the center part of the wiper blade (where it connects to the wiper arm). This unlocks the blade from the wiper arm.

  • 4

    Grasp the blade on each side and pull it down (away from the extended wiper arm) to release it from the "U" clip.

  • 5

    Repeat the process for the other wiper blade, if desired. Removing the driver's side and passenger's side wiper blade is the same.

  • 6

    Install the new wiper blade. Open the lock pin on the new blade, and then insert it into the wiper arm "U" clip. Close the lock pin and lower the wiper blade to its normal position.

    How do I replace wiper blades


    First, pull on the wiper arm until it raises and locks into the service position. The wiper arm will stand by itself once you raise it past a certain point.
    Then find the clip on the underside of the wiper arm (rotate the blade slightly to get to it.
    Press the clip in while simultaneously pulling the old wiper blade off the wiper arm. You can then discard the old blade.
    Align the new wiper blade with the wiper arm track. Slide it along the track until you hear it click.
    Repeat this process with the other wiper blade to complete the replacement of wiper blades on your Highlander.
    Return the wiper arms to their normal position against the windshield. Done!

    I cant figure out how to change my windshield wiper blades on 2001 ford ranger


    How to Replace Wiper Blades Guide (Typical):
    Potential tools needed to replace wiper blades:
    • Flat blade screwdriver (small)
    • Small nosed pliers
    • Latex or vinyl gloves
    • Safety goggles
    To replace wiper blades theactual action of replacing the blade is no big deal, it's the locationof the blade down below the hood that can make it difficult though.Sometimes it helps to open the hood to gain access to the wiper blades.Other times it is helpful if the wiper blade is somewhere in the motionline of wiper action. The trick is to get the wiper to stop somewherein the wiper arc. Turn the wipers to the on position and allow thewipers to start, and then shut the key off when the wiper has arrivedin a desirable position on the windshield. To replace your wiper bladesplease follow the step by step instruction below. Also, watch the How to replace wiper blades video below to gain additional information. The method in which the wiper blades are attached will vary slightly.
    • Step 1: With the hood closed, turn the wiperson, when the wipers are in the middle of their arc turn the key to theoff position. (Note: if this can't be done because of wiper conditionand you want to avoid scratching the windshield please open your hoodto gain access)
    • Step 2: Locate the mounting clips at the top pivot on the wiper blade
    • Step 3: Release the clip and remove the wiper arm
    • Step 4: Match the size of the old blade against the new blade to ensure proper fit and operation
    • Step 5: Reinstall the new wiper blade and recheck wiper operation

    Common Problems:
    • Make sure the wiper blades are the same size as the original blades.
    • When replacing wiper blades not getting the blade onthe mounting pin completely allowing the wiper arm to become dislodgedand possibly causing damage to the windshield.
    • Using wiper blades after the blade has failed permanently damaging the windshield by craving scratches in the wiper arc.
    • Wiper blade can create a chattering noise when theblade is not properly balanced allowing the blade to "flop" back andforth as the wiper direction changes.

    I hope help you with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.

    How do i time my wiper blades after replacing wiper motor blades stay in vertical position when set on interrmitent


    Remove the wiper arms from the drive posts. Turn on your wipers with the engine running and shut the wipers off -- this will put the wiper drive posts in the park position.

    Reinstall the wiper arms so the blades are about an inch above the bottom of the windshield.

    Front wipers park in the vertical position


    Problem is in the wiper motor. Inside is a grounding lug that parks the wiper blades when you turn them off. Right now they are just being shutdown by a loss of power, not parked.
