Wiper dodge ram


You must remove the wiper arm to make sure the serrations on both the arm and where it mounts to are not damaged. Turn on the wipers and see if the nub that the wiper arm mounts to is moving.

If it isn't, there is a mechanism called the Wiper Transmission. It is located in the cowl at the bottom of the windshield. The device has a number of arms. The arm that connects the right side to the transmission is off. This is usually the fault of a small round plastic piece at the end of the arm. Simply putting it back on is nit recommended because it will probably fall off again. This plastic piece is attainable at most good auto parts places.

Rear Wiper replacement


Normally, all you need to do, is lift the arm and slide a small locking tab into place. Then, just lift the arm off. If it doesn't work like this, it has a screw in the center.

1985 bmw 318i wiper fluid system won't work. i would like a diagram to check out the problem.


If the pump is working then the nozzles are probably clogged. Either remove and soak in a calcium rust remover or replace.
Also you might want to chace the hose from the tank and make
sure it's not clogged or kinked.

Need to replace driver side wiper do not know how to get it off


I believe the blade is the same as my F-250, according to the manual. Pull the wiper away from the windshield, then push on either end of the blade, follow blade to pivot point at center, where blade pivots back and forth on wiper arm (wiper arm will not be moving as you do this). You need to push towards the windshield at this pivot point to push in on the wiper arm and out on the blade assembly to pop the round end of the wiper arm out of the hole in the blade assembly. Look at the new blade to see where this attaches. The new one should snap on to the arm when u squeeze the wiper arm to the blade. I prefer Exact Fit brand, as they seem to fit well. If u purchase at autozone, or advanced auto parts, they will install them for free.
