Question about 1999 Ford Windstar
It sounds like you are using the wrong length wiper blades for that vehicle.
Have an auto parts store look up the wiper blades according to the application of your vehicle (the auto part store will tell you the length), and then check to see if the wiper blades that are on your vehicle are actually the same length as what the auto part store said should be on the vehicle.
It is not unusual to find the wrong size wiper blades on those vans. (Having a 20" wiper blade when the application calls for a 22" wiper blade)

Most likely you will have to replace the wiper linkage from the center pivot to the left or drivers-side wiper pivot. The plastic piece in the linkage gets brittle over time and breaks down. To save a hassle in the future, replace both linkages. It should be under $20.00 for parts.

There is a clip on the base of the wiper arm that swings out. Then you just lift the wiper arm up and off. Very simple once you know what to do. ( no, I'm not that smart. A guy at NAPA showed me how to do it.) Hope this helps. B.

Lift up the blade and press the small tab under the curved portion of the blade and push the blade towards the other end of the arm. Good luck. Keep me posted.

Go back to the store, they have a chart showing the correct ones, and if you didn't abuse the first set they'll probably trade you. Ask and I'm sure they'll help you get the right ones. Still have your receipt?
