If it's the blade arm it's generally always best to replace it new and will come with new fasteners.

If it's the assembly arm itself depending upon how it was broken off you may need to replace assembly the arm from the stem complete with new / serviceable used bracket.

I replaced the winidhsield wiper transmission on 2004 grand am. Now after putting the wiper arms back on they either dont go all the way to the base of the windshield or they wont go all the way over to clean the windshield. Is there a certain way the transmission goes in, or does it matter? And any suggestions on alligning the wiper arms.

I need to remove the windshield wiper arm to get to the wiper transmission. I took the bolt off, but the arm wont come off. How does it come off?


After taking the bolt off raise the wiper up and while holding it up with one hand push down on the wiper arm near where you took the bolt off it should break free. Good luck.

2004 Pontiac Montana. The wipers start but then stop after moving just a little and then go back down. They do not come up all the way.


Hello Sebpgood.

O yes, the notorious GM van wiper problem.
The clutch mechanism on the wiper motors are difficult to say the least.
The spline on the shaft from the wiper motor may have slipped putting the wiper motor to wiper transmission out of synchronization.
These are tricky to get back in time.
Also there is a tab on the crank arm designed to catch the clutch that wears and/or bends down and will not allow proper operation.
Most of the time I replace the crank arm assembly as they are prone to wear.
Check all the parts on the wiper transmission for siezed pivots and bent arms.
I hope this helps you towards a repair.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Hallo! On my 2004 Pontiac Montana, left wiper is not going to the bottom and the right one is not going to it's far up-right position. Is it a problem with positioning the wiper-arms, or something else? ...


yes , positioning is off. lift both wipers off the windshield , turn wipers on and then off. Lower them onto the window and you will see which one has moved from it's proper position. Remove the out of position arm , or both if necesarry , and put them back on in the position where they should normally sit when shut off. My concern is that the posts they attach to may have the splines stripped off them , or the wiper arm itself might be stripped inside.

2004 Pontiac Grand Prix....Wipers are moving slowly


How to fix slow wipers on 2005 Grand prix
    -Remove black plastic caps on the wiper towers (end of wiper arm)
    -Undo nuts (13mm)
    -Make note of the wiper arms positions when in park so they can be reinstalled in the same spot. Also make note of the routing of the washer supply lines so you can reinstall them in the same position. Use a puller and pull off wiper arms. I did not have a puller but used a small c-clamp, jammed one end under the wiper arm and screwed the clamp into the wiper post (be careful with the threads, maybe leave the nut on loose until the arms break fee.
    -Move the wiper arms and washer supply line to the top of the engine to be out of the way.
    -Remove the rubber hood weather strip and store out of the way.
    -Remove both sides of the plastic cowl cover, there are 3 expansion clips, use a screw driver or wire cutters to pry out the pin first, then pry out the clip itself using same tools. Move the covers up onto the windshield so they are out of the way.
    -The entire wiper motor/transmission, wiper towers and arms are now exposed
    -Remove the arm from the motor that runs across to the passenger side wiper tower. This will make it much easier to remove the wiper assembly. The arms have a plastic end that snaps over a ball, these can be removed by prying off with a thin pair of pliers.
    -There are 3 bolts (10mm) holding the wiper assembly to the cowl. A 4th attachment point is merely a rubber end that fits into a slot in the cowl. Remove the 3 bolts and pull the wiper assembly from the car. Undo the electrical connection by pulling straight out.
    -In most cases the ball and plastic end of the arms will not be seized. These can each be removed, cleaned, regreased and reassembled. Just push back on with a large pair of pliers.
    -In my situation the driver's side tower and wiper shaft were moving freely. The passenger side was almost seized solid which is what causes the wipers to run real slow.
    -The wiper shaft must be freed up and removed from the tower so that it can be cleaned, greased and reassembled. The hardest part is removing the small C clip at the top of the wiper shaft that holds the shaft in the tower. C clip pliers or other means can be used to remove this clip. Be careful you don't break it or lose it. Once the C clip is removed the shaft can be removed from the tower. I did this by soaking with penetrating oil and tapping it in and out and working it back and forth with large pliers. Again be careful with the threads on the shaft. Put the nut on and use a brass hammer. You cannot hammer real hard as the tower is cast aluminum and may break if hit too hard. By being patient I was able to work the shaft free from the tower, clean both well with emery paper, grease and reassemble.
    -Overall reassembly is merely a reversal of the disassembly, being careful to put everything back in its proper place and order.
    -Leave the arm off running from the motor to the passenger side tower as this will allow the wiper assembly to go back in place much easier. Once the wiper assembly is bolted back in place, snap the arm into place over the ball at the motor after greasing.
    -Before reinstalling the plastic cowl coverings, it is a good time to replace your air conditioning intake filter in the cowl on the passenger side.
    -The above process took me about 3 hours start to finish and is moderate difficulty. Once completed the wipers run and park just like new, and it didn't cost me a dime.

I have a 1997 Grand Prix GTP and my windshield wipers won't work


The wiper arms are a "friction fit" on the wiper linkage studs.
Remove the cap from the end of each wiper arm, remove the retaining nut, carefully pry the wiper arm off of the stud. Clean out the inside of the arm hole and also clean up the stud. Position the arm back in to proper place on the wiper arm "park" stands and the linkage stud. Put the nut back on the stud and tighten down.
This should solve your problem.
