SOURCE: windshield wipers make loud noise but dont move when turned on

Probably stripped the little splines where wiper arm attaches to pivot. Flip the cover up where arm attaches to pivot, and tighten nuts on there, but be careful not to go too far, its not hard to snap the pivot stud if you tighten too much. make sure wipers are off, in park position, and move arms to where they should be, then tighten. See if you still get loud noise after. If you do, somethings wrong under cowl, in the linkages or motor. You may be able to see something with flashlight or troublelight.

SOURCE: Wipers wont move on 2001 caravan

There's a few things that could be wrong. The wiper motor may be turning but the gears inside of the wiper arms may be stripped. This will require replacing the wiper module with the motor and gears together (mechanic would be the best option).

Another possibility is that a nut came loose that holds the wiper motor output to the wiper arms, causing the wipers to not move.

If you'd like to try to do the work yourself, check out a Chilton or Haynes manual for your specific vehicle (make, model, and year) at the library or you can buy one at a local auto parts store (Autozone, Pepboys, Advance Auto, etc.) or online from http://chilton.cengage.com/ or http://www.haynes.com/

Good luck and I hope I could help you get started. Don't forget to rate! Thank you!

SOURCE: windshield wiper arms

The wiper blades might be the wrong size (too long). Or the arms might have to be removed and repositioned so they line up in the right spot at each end of their travel. If the wipers look like they're flopping about or going at different speeds right from left, then the linkage is broken and you'll need to buy a good used linkage from a wrecker.

There are no adjustments on the wipers. The arms come off to realign. Pop the wiper arm cap off with a very small flathead screwdriver theres a liitle opening slot to do this. Remove the nut. Pull wiper off straight, use pulley if needed. If the tenson is gone in the wiper arm replace. The springs go bad in the rear arm from dirt.

How do I get the windshield wiper arms off a 2002 Dodge Caravan so I can work on the windshield wiper nozzles?


Look to see if you have clips that slide to the side to resease the arms. if not hold the wiper arm up just a bit and use a screwdrive to pry the arm up. It may take some work if the arms have never been off.

I need to replace the windshield wiper blade


The 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan takes 28" wiper blades on both sides front and a 18" rear wiper. See related links below for more information. Since there are over 22 different wiper arm attachments, do not buy wipers just by length only - be sure to lookup exact wiper blade part numbers by vehicle make, model and year for the brand wiper you decide to purchase. This ensures correct length AND correct attachment.

How do i remove the windshield wiper blade


The 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan has the most common hook-end wiper arms. See related links below for installation videos. Also, purchase the replacement blades first and there will be additional instructions/illustrations on the replacement packages. Locate and press the tab or button where the wiper blade is inserted into the hook of the wiper arm and pull wiper blade out of hook. You may have to rotate and flex the blade to make enough clearance for the hook to pass through.
