Driver side wind sheild wiper not working - passenger side wiper okay. driver side moves a little.


You have an assembly of arms that hook to motor one for each side sounds like your left one has come loose or is at least slipping you will have to remove the crowl panel at the wipers to check .The wiper is held on by a nut. The nut is under a plastic cover at the pivot point of the wiper. Loosen the nut then align the wiper blade where it's supposed to be then tighten the nut.Its not adjusted right, remove the nut that holds your left wiper on, then pry it off the shaft, lift the wiper up all the way then just pull up straight off the shaft, then put it back on so it starts at the left lower edge of the windshield.---- First, start by checking the nut at the base of the wiper arm, if it is good and tight, then you have to remove the cowl and check the wiper linkage.If the linkage has come apart then you will have to replace the piece that has come loose.------
Getting, this possibilities checked will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

REAR WIPER DOES NOT MOVE WHEN TURNED ON YOU CAN HEAR WIPER MOTOR BUT WIPER DOES NOT MOVE


It sounds like the blade has come loose on the shaft. The motor is turning the shaft, so you have a fairly easy job of tightening the blade and arm to the shaft. Look at the assembly where the big round bit that drives the arm goes into the body. If it's not missing, remove the round cover, You'll see a nut there. Tighten it up, put the cover back on, and the job's done.

My wiper won't move. i can hear the motor but its not working. i was told to take case off and tighten the nut, but i don't see it?? 99 E320


If you are hearing the noise of motor but there is no action please check the following.

1. look at the stub of the wiper blade nurlings to see if they are moving. If so there is poor contact or grip on the wiper blade arm mounting as this can be tightened.
2. But if you do not see any such reciprocating motion of the spindle then it is possible that the SPIRAL wheel within the wiper motor is damaged as the wiper motor is not meshing to crank the wheel to move the arms.
You will need to open this assembly to confirm, change the wheel is available or try to get one from a scrap yard.

The blade wipes in the wrong direction, it now wipes below the windsheild on the license plate.


Hi,
normally I would surmise that the wiper arm securing nut has loosened, thus allowing the arm to change position on the drive spindle. Put the wiper on, and turn the ign off with the arm in the center of the wipe arc. Physically grasp the arm and try to move it across the wipe arc in any direction. If it moves at all under pressure then the securing nut is loose OR, the drive spindle has stripped or the arm female side has stripped.

Would you be kind enough to give a little more detail of the wiper arrangement? Thank you.

I am just doing a little more thought!!

Rear windshield wiper does not move even though I can hear motor working


Check the attaching nut for the wiper blade. They will come loose over time. Pop up the cover on the wiper ,there is a 13mm nut try tightening it. Make sure the wiper arm and motor are in the park position before tightening.Good luck.
