I'm not sure what you're driving, but usually there is a screw on the motor driving the wiper-arm controlling the degree the arm can move. Sounds like it's loose. If tightening that doesn't work, go to a junk yard and buy a new motor.

I opened my hood for the first time since I bought. The hood won't close all the way. any suggestions.


If ir is a brand new car there is a safety latch that should hold the hood down. You can pull on the hood to be sure the safety latch is doing its job. Drive the new car take it back to the dealer or where ever you bought it.

They will slam the hood down and smile. Better them breaking the new car than you,'

It may be out of adjustment
You can manually activate the hood latch. There is a hook like assembly that follows the hood latch down when closed. You can activate this assembly by hand. Be sure to release it before attempting to close the hood again.


If it is a used car make sure the handle in the driver side has returned to the home position. If it has I would gently slam the hood down.

Why is passenger wiper not returning to hidden place?


The wiper arm has probably slipped off of the motor gears...to fix this, both arms will need to be removed...but first check for a wiper "fuse" Check your owners manual for location...if the fuse is OK, you should still hear the wipers trying to move...after removing both arms, you will have to try the wiper switch and hopefully notice both bases are turning freely...turn the wipers off before turning your car off...this will show you the normal down position...be sure when putting the arms back on that they both remain in the down position before turning them on...hope this helps.

The passenger side windshield wiper stopped working but the motor is good & driver side works


the wiper arm may have come loose from the motor linkage , where the arm joins the linkage outside of bonnet/hood there is a flip up cap , under there is a nut that holds the wiper arm in position , this may be loose so remove completely then remove the arm as the splines may not be in the correct position, replace the arm so that when it is laid back down on windscreen it is level with the bottom and tighten the nut , you must tighten the nut with the wiper arm raised so as to get a good fit , this may require a couple of attempts to get in the exact position when wiper arm is laid back down, hope that makes sense

Rear wiper arm stuck out of position; will not return to window


Open the rear window and push the arm past its usual position against the window. It may restore the the tension. However, You likely need a new wiper arm, you could also try lubricating the pivot point.

My wipers slam against the sides of the windshield,


First make sure you have the correct length wiper blades on the arms.If they are correct it sounds like someone has had the arms off and replaced them one tooth too far. Remove the arms and move them one at a time. Carefully note the position when you remove them and replace each one by moving the arm one tooth toward the center of the car.

Front passenger side window is stuck in the down position


Sounds like the regualte or push arm is broken. If there is no spound then sounds like the regulator. The inside door trim has to be taken off, find the regualator, remove and replace should be ok then.

For the last few weeks I've been tightening my 2003 impala's passenger side windshield wiper daily. It also slams onto the plastic when it reaches the bottom...what could the problems be? The driver side...


the wiper arm could need to be replaced
being loose could have have worn the hole in the wiper arm
or the splines on the wiper transmission maybe damaged
i would try a new wiper arm first
use BLUE LOCTITE on the threads and TORQUE the nut to (22 lb ft)
hope this helps
