There is no Lifetime limit on winshields I have one that is 43 years old with no problems. you can scratch them if say the rubber gets so old it peals off and the metal rubs on the glass but, that would leave distinct arcs od scratches. A friend of mine used to detail cars at the lot he worked at and one of the first things they did was give them a good cleaning including scrubing the windshield with superfine 0000 or finer steel wool while it was wet with soapy water. makes look like brand new even making major scratches look better. If there are big scratches take it to a place thate does chip repair and have them try to polish them out.

What is the plastic grate piece under the windshield? What is its parts number?A deer hit our van and smashed not only the windshield but the wipers and this grate piece and I cant seem to figure out what...


It's called the windshield eustacheon or "windscreen". It would be cheaper if you can get to a pull a part/junkyard and pull it yourself. Will cost you an arm and a leg at the parts counter at the dealership. There are several years that interchange with your van including the Chrysler vans....1999-2004 I believe.

Another option is to check on Craigslist to see if someone is parting out a Caravan (more than likely). Look in your state, then your area, then look under auto parts and then type in Caravan. You don't have to put a year.

Good luck!

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.

I have a 1992 dodge shadow.but the windshield wipers isn't working.I checked the motor is well,the terminal voltage is 12V,how can I continu to repair the 1992 dodge shadow's windshield wipers?


You posting is slightly confusing but I gather your windshield wipers stopped working.
The repair method is as follows;
) Check the fuse.
) Check the wiper motor. Turn the wipers on and listen for the hum of the motor.

If you hear the hum then the linkage has probably come loose. You will have to take the covers off
to get to the linkage for the wiper. You can either repair the parts, get salvage yard parts or replace with new part$.

If you do not hear the motor hum then you should verify electricity is getting to the motor. A simple
voltmeter can be used. If the motor is bad you can replace it. Call some auto supply stores for after-market motors or call salvage yards for parts.

Windshield wiper


1) listen if windshield wiper motor is turning when switched on. The motor is under hood up near firewall.
If no noise and fuses are OK, motor may need replacement.

2) If motor can be heard whirring, then maybe the plastic link between the motor shaft and the wiper arm assy has worn or broken. (A very cheap part). This can be accessed by removing cowling or vents in front of windshield. This is a common failure.
