If it has a plastic cap on it, under the cap is a nut that holds it tight to the arm shaft. Pop off the plastic cap, and tighten the nut.

Driver's side wiper not working


The wiper arms are attached to the wiper motor by clips. If the drivers side clip came undone then the wiper arm could possibly fall off the motor. Some wiper arms are attached as a duet with 1 clip. In this case the arm broke off the mounting plate and the entire assembly needs to be changed.

These parts, for some reason, are called wiper transmissions. You can web search the part by that name on the internet. You will probably find good photos to show how they are made. You may just need to replace the clip which also can be researched on the internet.

Driver side wiper blade on 1994 chrysler town and country stopped working. Passenger side is ok. What could be wrong?


The wiper arms are 'pressed' onto the wiper motor spindles, often at times when only one of them stops operating, it is because the splines on the wiper that is no longer operating has become stripped out. and may need to either be replaced or tightened. I would recommend tightening it first, then replacing it if that does not correct it.
You can access the hold down bolt (if it is not exposed) by taking a small screw driver and prying up the bolt cap. The bolt is usually a 13mm, and is more easily tightened by a ratchet and socket of the same size.

Need to remove the wiper arms from my 1999 Town and Country. Have taken the plastic cap off, taken nut off and the arm will not budge. Any thoughts?


Lift the arm side so it's pointing up in the air. (put a floor mat on the windshield to protect it) and lift up and push down on it wiggling it off. Or if you have a rubber mallet (so as not to damage the threads) hit the stud in the middle with a good shot but not hard enough to break anything.

Need to replace a wiper motor on a 2002 chrysler town and country mini van. how is this done?


Remove the wiper arms (pop off the caps at the base) and the 15mm nut. Take out the screws that hold down the wind shield cowl lift it away to expose the washer hoses. Unplug the wiper motor (center driver's side) by pulling out the red clip on it and squeezing the tab. Remove the 13mm nut from the wiper motor idler arm and take out the 3 10mm bolts that hold it in place. Squeeze it out from under the wiper transmission, or loosen the lower bolts. You'll see them. Not a difficult job, just take your time.

Hope I've helped.

One wiper not working.


if you can move the arm while the wipers are parked, either the linkage popped off or the arm came off the splines. take the cover off where the nut is and see if the arm moves on the shaft, this usually happens when you turn the wipers on and they are frozen, and crank the nut down. I usually put some thread lock on them first.

Front windshield wipers are crashing into each other


Yes you can adjust them yourself. First you need to check that the wiper arms are not bent. If not, remove the cap at the wiper arm base, under it u will find a nut, remove this nut. you should now be able to remove the wiper arm. (it is comon for caravan wiper arms to be corroded on. If the arm dosen't come off, you may need to heat up the wiper arm with a propane torch. be careful not to melt the plastic cowel under the arm. OR you can use a wiper puller or a battery puller. do not force it, you can break the arm, DO NOT PRY AGAINST THE COWEL OR WINDSHIELD.
Once both arms are off, turn your van on and turn the wipers on. watch the wiper posts, turn the wipers off and watch the wiper posts return and stop in the "parked" position. Turn the van off. Install the passanger wiper arm first, it is positioned closest to the bottom an inch or two above the black cowel. It should be parrallel to the cowel. next install the drivers side wiper arm. it is positioned about 4 inches above the passanger wiper. again running parrallel to the cowel and passanger wiper. tighten the lock nuts down (do not over tighten) wet down your windshield with glass cleaner or windshield washer fluid and test wipers. If they still hit you can lower the passanger one a little or raise the drivers one a little (careful you don't raise the drivers one too much or it will 'jump' off the windshield at the top of the wipe).
good luck, hope this helps.

No instructions on how to remove rear wiper blade on 2004 Town & Country touring. The wiper arm only raises about three inches from window, and there is no indication of a normal wiper removal at that...


there is a plastic cap where the arm connects to a post. pop this cap off with your finger nail or small screw driver. this cap hides a nut. remove the nut (10mm socket needed?) and pull the arm off to replace the blade

Wiper arm assembly


Down at the Base of the Arms, Where they Mount and Swivel and Lift Up, There is a Very small Tab that you can Pull up torwards to top of the Windshield. Get a Pair of Pliers and Pull this Tab up until it Stops. Then take the Pliers and a Wrag or Tape them and Grab the Arm at the Swivel Point and Wiggle while you Pull to get the Arms to Release. From this point Forward it is going to be Trial and Error on your Part to get them Aligned back to where they Belong. Without Being there Physically it is Impossible for me to Help you from this Point. Good Luck! Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
