To remove the end caps from the wiper arms. When you pull back the wipers, it is the small cover that didn't pull back. Pull it back. You will see a nut, or a screw, to remove arm. Take note of wiper position beforeyou remove! They have to be put back exactly, at the same angle you tookk them off.

Where is the fuse for the windshield wipers on 2004 Nissan maxima


Some cars have these included with accessories. If your other accessories work, then your windshield wiper motor requires replacement. Otherwise, read the inside cover of the fuse box the symbol for windshield wipers looks like a windscreen with two wiper blades on it.

Windshield wipers went out on my 2000 nissan maxima


Im not sure the extent of the problem but if both went out, check your fuses, they may be under the hood or in the fuse panel within the car. Also you might want to check if the nuts that hold the wiper arms on arnt loose, if they are the rod that holds the wiper arm will move but with out the nut holding tight the arms themselves wont move.

During the last snow storm my windshield wiper motor for my 1997 nissan maxima broke and I had a new one ordered. I went through the process, but when it came to reataching the windshied wiper transmission...


Did you try removeing the wiper arms them selves . Then reinstall them on the splines so they will be in the correct pisition at park and won't travel to far in the opperating mode . You should be able to put them at any pisition you need to as long as the motor and interinal mechizem is functioning . I hope i understood your question correctly its a little unclear to me

Snow on windows and wife turned on wipers and they didn't come on 20006 maxima ..


wipers dont do very well in ice and snow after the snow and ice was cleared did they work again if not check fuse if fuse is good
First: is it the wipers, wiper arms or motor that is at fault? Most times it is the ball joint piece that comes off, disabling the wipers, and the motor is still good. This reauires replacement of the wiper arm mechanism that has the "socket" on the end, a plastic part. If it is the motor, read on... The motor is located on the passenger side, mounted on the firewall. It "connects" to the arms that move the wipers via a ball joint. The wiper arm has a plastic part that has to be "popped" off the ball of the motor to be able to remove the motor. It simply snaps back on. You facillitate this by removeing the black plastic air vent screen that runs across the engine are near the window. After removing this you will see the arms that control wiper movement. It helps to "undo" the ball/socket if the motor is loose also. Install is just the reverse.

My 1990 nissan stanza had ice on windshield, I tured on wipers & nothing The motor runs but wipers don't


If the ice buildup was severe enough and you tried to run your wipers while they were frozen in place, the wiper transmission has probably failed, slipped a joint and now the motor will turn but it will not turn the wiper arms. You will have to open up the wiper panel and visually check to see what part has failed in that wiper transmission.

When i turn on the windshield wipers, they don;t move. All I hear is a clicking sound


Under the wiper arms you will find a wiper transmission that consists of a series of linkages that attach the wiper arms to the motor. This is where you will find your problem. Remove the wiper arms and the panel under them for inspection.

How do I access the windshield wiper assembly?


You have to remove the wiper arms by prying off the black platic piece over the nut. Remove the nut and the wiper arms. There should be 5 places on the black plastic piece that runs the length of the windshield. Remove 4 of them by prying them out. The one is the middle is a screw. Pull away the plastic piece and you should have access to the mechanism below. I think you need to replace the linkage if it has fallen off.

Windshield Wipers


They might well be!
Check under the hood / bonnet at the linkage connections.
Occasionally, the bolt / fixing can work free, allowing the motor to work as normal.
This does not transfer the motion to the wiper arms and you get the motor noise but no movement.
Depending on the car, it could be easy - or very difficult to access the linkages.

Hope this helps.
