How do I replace a windshield wiper washer switch?


1) remove air bag ( unplug harness, harness cable/plug easily ruined, be careful)
2) remove steering wheel
3) remove bolts that hold control assembly (switch assembly which is all steering column switches, all one unit)
4) unplug harness ( sometimes you have a tie-wrap or a clip of some kind to remove or open too)
5) remove from steering column
6) reverse order for installation

I have a 2001 VW golf gti and lately I've been having a real problem with my wipers..They only work on very fast, the slow and intermittent speeds don't work, and neither does the wipers when you spray the...


If it was the relay, they would not work at all. There is a speed control for the wipers that controls the speed and delay (not the switch in the steering wheel), call the dealer to see if it is a separate module or integrated into the motor (if it is the later, you'll need a rebuilt/new unit).

Hope this helps.

The windshield wiper switch on my 2001 lumina needs to be replaced and I am thinking of doing it myself. How hard is it to do this? Is it true that I would need to take the steering wheel off?


No , the steering wheel doesn't need to be pulled off . The wiper switch just pulls out of the steering column .

Verify that the lever (2) is in the center of the OFF position.
Disconnect the electrical connection (3) behind the lever (2).
Remove the switch lever (2) by pulling straightly outward on the lever .

I can't get my windshield wipers to turn off, any suggestions?


The problem may be the windshield wiper switch on the steering wheel. My switch broke when I turned on my windshield washer fluid. It remain in the down position. All I did was put a peice of folded paper underneath the wiper switch to hold it in the up postion. That should keep them from coming on until you replace the whole wiper switch.

How do i remove the turn signal switch from a 1984 nissan 300zx?


What you really want to remove is the "Combination Switch" which controls the
a) headlights b) turn signals, and c) windshield wipers.
The new switch comes with the Left-hand handle attached (expect to pay $$$).

I found your solution (with illustration and replacement parts) at
www.autozone.com/autozone/repairinfo/repairguide/repairGuideContent.jsp?pageId=0900c15280071fa4
Autozone will expect you to register with the site - free. Since your car is a 1984, buy
a Haynes manual - $20 anywhere (try Pep Boys, Advance Auto Parts, etc.)

(I don't work for Autozone) Autozone sells 2 replacement switches:
the one you want is: Duralast SW1836 $122.99 - it has the combination switch and handle only.
They also sell: Duralast SW1690 $170.99, which has the combination switch/handle and also a
collar going around the steering wheel and another switch and handle on the right side of the column.

1. remove steering column cover.
2. unfasten the wiper switch electrical connector.
3. remove the wiper switch-to-combination switch retaining screws, then pull the wiper switch off of the combination switch.
4. The combination switch is now disconnected and can be removed.
5. Installation of new part is reverse of removal.

The wiper motor on my 1983 Ford Ranger still works but the wipers no longer move. I think there is a failure of the mechanical linkage. Where do I go to find repair parts?


why do you think the motor still works if the wipers don't move? Can you hear the motor run or can you see a little movement when you turn the switch on?

What happens when you activate the washers?

go to a salvage yard that allows you to remove the parts yourself. Then you can see how the motor and linkage assembly comes out.


don't have 1983 info, but here is 1994:

Section 01-16A: Wiper and Washer System, Ranger/Explorer 1994 Ranger and Explorer Vehicles Workshop Manual

The windshield wiper mounting arm and pivot shaft (17566) are connected to the motor by windshield wiper adapter and connecting arm clip (17531) . Ranger and Explorer vehicles are equipped with an interval wiper and washer (IWW) system featuring a lever-type turn signal and windshield wiper switch (13K359) mounted on the steering column. The IWW windshield wiper governor (17C476) uses a relay contact to control current to the windshield wiper motor . The governor electronic circuitry controls the contact to supply current to windshield wiper motor . A rear wiper/washer system is available on Explorer vehicles. The rear window wiper system consists of a windshield wiper motor mounted inside the liftgate (40010) , an articulating windshield wiper pivot arm and windshield wiper blade , a windshield wiper/washer switch (17A553) and an inline circuit breaker.

Windshield wipers will not shut off?


I replaced the Power fuse/relay located under the steering wheel dash. Its a gray canister and only costs $3.00. That seemed to repair the windshield wiper and powerlockes and powerseat. The resone that the ruse/relay went out in the first place was because the power seat switches were touching the frame of the chair. All i did to fix that was to use electrical tape on the frame and around the switch assembly.
