How to remove the wiper arm from the shaft so I can remove the cslotted cowl to replace the wiper bushings.


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
(see Figures 1 and 2)

To remove the arm from the pivot, lift the arm to permit the latch to be pulled out to the holding position and remove the arm from the pivot with a rocking motion.

zjlimited_140.jpg

Fig. 1: Mount the wiper blade/arm as shown-Dakota models

zjlimited_141.jpg

Fig. 2: Mount the wiper blade/arm as shown-1994-96 Pick-ups



When installing the arms, the at-rest position of the blades should be determined before pushing the arm onto the pivot. For Dakota trucks, the tip of the driver's side blade should be 0.51-2.63 in. (13-67mm) above the cowl panel and the passenger's side blade should be 0.94-3.06 in. (24-78mm) above the cowl panel. For 1989-93 Pick-ups and Ramchargers, the driver's side blade should be 1.84 in. (47mm) above the windshield weatherstripping at the heel of the blade; the passenger's side blade should be 2.24 in. (57mm) above the weatherstripping. For 1994-96 Pick-ups, the wiper motor must be in the PARK position and the wiper blade should be about 0.85 in. (22mm) from the upper edge of the black-out areas at the base of the windshield.


Hope this helps to solve it.

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:

Section 01-16A: Wiper and Washer System, Ranger/Explorer 1994 Ranger and Explorer Vehicles Workshop Manual

Ranger and Explorer vehicles are equipped with an interval wiper and washer (IWW) system featuring a lever-type turn signal and windshield wiper switch (13K359) mounted on the steering column. The IWW windshield wiper governor (17C476) uses a relay contact to control current to the windshield wiper motor .

How do you get the wiper arms off of a 1998 dodge ram?


Wiper arms are generally held on one of two different ways. Either with a nut under a little cap that flips up above the pivot shaft, or a lock tab at the base of the wiper arm that pivots out and away a little from the pivot shaft. With either one, you will have to flip the wiper arms away from the windshield because they will not pull off the pivot shaft until the wiper blade spring tension is no longer acting against the windshield. Here's a pic of the lock tab.d76e2b6.jpg

Cant take off the windsheild wipers


Here is the procedure to remove the wiper motor. It says to remove wipers by removing the nut covers then remove the wiper nuts. Is this what your talking about?
If your talking about the wiper arms they just pop off at the swivel.

1993 jeep cherokee country series--replace windshield wipers


Are trying to remove the blade or the arms?

The arms are released by holding the wiper blade fully extended away from the winshield and wiggle the arms off.

The blades are removed by a little tab where the blade hooks to the arm,using a small screwdriver push down on tab,and slide blade off arm but do not let arm slap windshield as it could crack it,I have seen people pull and the blades suddenly come off and the arm slaps down,yor can put a towel or cloth down where the arm sits against the windshield to prevent the possibilty of the arm slapping down.
