Wind shield wipper handle wont stay in place it broke how do you fix it


Hi there,

Well you can please follow the below steps -
1. Lift the wiper arm away from the windshield. If the tension spring is damaged or broken, the arm will not show resistance. If it is functioning properly, then pull the arm back until the hinge locks in a vertical position.
2. Remove the retaining nut at the base of the windshield wiper arm and pull the wiper arm off.
3. Slide the new wiper arm assembly on.
4. Tighten the retaining nut and lower the arm back down to the windshield.
Please post comments for any other help or information......

Good Luck!!

Thanks

My Volvo's windshield wipers just ''froze in place'' and do move. Is this an electrical problem? (My car's headlights/brake lights do work.) Thank you.


You could try just tightening the nuts that hold your wipers. I'm no expert but I know the wipers on volvos are made to loosen them selves up if they get stuck on anything (like ice) so they wont break something more expensive.

02 audi a4 quattro wipers won't park


If you can move the wiper arms by hand then the 13mm bolt on the motor has worked loose, remove the plastic windscreen trim under the bonnet , close the bonnet , then operate the wiper motor for 1 cycle , switch off , open the bonnet , loosen the 13 mm nut on the wiper motor , push wipers down to the park position , tighten 13mm nut up , close bonnet then check wiper operation , they should now park in the correct position .

Rear windshield wiper


Try tightening the bolt that holds the wiper in place. There is a cap over it at the base of the wiper where it attaches to the window pop that cap and you will see the it.

Windshield wiper


Is there a little cap covering where it attaches to pivot at base of windshield. If so, pry/flip it up, forward from bottom or end, & you'll probably see a nut to tighten underneath it. Do it when wipers off & in parked position so you can move the arm where you remember it goes, then tighten. Don't reef too ******* it, they aren't that strong and will snap if you go too far with wrench, just real snug. Unless you've stripped spline real good, this should do it.
