2000 grand marquis driver's side windshield wiper lifts off windshield

Hello Steve,

From your post, "Finally had enough and stuffed a small block of wood between the driver's side bottom of the molded plastic linkage frame enough to lift the whole thing enough to put a moderate amount of pressure behind the wiper blade..", it sounds like this box is warped or somehow out of alignment. Is it possible for you to buy this box from a wrecking yard? Has you car ever been in a collision? If so the frame may have so un-repaired buckling resulting in the misalignment.

My windshield Wiper on driver side quit working before it even got too cold out. I have a 1994 Plymouth Voyager Sport SE and don't know how to fix this poblem. Any idea what it could be or what

Either the linkage is stripped out or broke. I would look at the spindle that the blade attaches to. On the underside of it is a linkage that must have something wrong with it. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

All you need to do is to remove the wiper blades of the driver side and then switch on and off the wipe so that the other wiper is seen to work in correct position. Now switch off and in the parked condition, fit back the driver side wiper to the stem.
The wiper must now work

My 2000 ford crown victoria's driver side windshield wiper will not stay tightly on the windsheild when i get over 40 it gets worse until it does not wipe at all. Tried replaced the blade nothing, the arm...

I usually start with the blade as well, the arm can be bent in a method to make it arch high higher in the middle of the arm - forcing more downward pressure onto the windshield. The real problem however, could be your windshield. Not that I believe that all Ford vehicles should have the "Carlite" stamp on the glass, there are other good brands of glass. But, some glass manufacturers have poor quality control and their glass molds produce some parts with flat spots, low spots, high spots and many other distortions in the glass. Does your windshield have a Carlite stamp at the lower part of the windshield? If you can't adjust the wiper to work, you may want to consider the glass instead.
