You could also see if the bolts holding the wipers on came loose from the snow and ice. Pop the cover off, loosen and straighten the wipers where they should be and tighten.

Press in on the tab on the center of the blade and pull down perpendicular to the arm. To install, slide the new blade on the hook until it clicks.

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?

loosen the nut at the bottom of the blades so that the wiper motor will work without moving the blades. cycle the wipers and allow the motor to come to the rest position. Fit the blades and tension the nut. Pull the arms off the windscreen and cycle the wiper motor to run until it stops put the wipers back on the screen and see where they are. IF parked properly then OK but if any where then replace the wiper motor as the sequencing gear inside is out of sync with the wiper action.

If the wipers were jammed two things could have happened to the motor. The first possibility is that you striped one of the plastic gears, or the second more likely option is that the ball joint on the wiper has popped off. Try moving the wiper blades back and forth and listen for a sound like metal scraping or dragging which will mean its the ball joint. To fix it first take off the wiper motor and locate the joint still attached to the blades ( move the blades back and forth till you see it). Once you have found the joint tie some rope around the wiper joint arm and pop the joint back together. I had this happen once with a Subaru during a snow storm.

Driver's side windshield wiper goes past window frame. How can this be repaired?


It could be a relatively easy fix or it could take some effort. First, try repositioning the wiper. By flipping up the end cap of the wiper arm and backing off the set screw that holds it on the wiper motor post. Remember, what position it was in by placing a piece of tape on the windshield. Pull the wiper arm off by pulling it off in line ith the angle of the wiper motor post. Take a close look at the splines of both the wiper blade arm and wiper motor. If either is damaged you will have to replace that component. Estimate the amount of adjustment you need and reinstall the wiper blade arm that amount in relationship to the piece of tape. Tighten set screw and try it.
If it still does it but less then repeat the process until you get it adjusted correctly. If there was no change thing it could be the wiper motor and that takes some effort to replace.

I somehow broke the connection between the wiper motor and the wiper blades. One website told me to check the linkage, but I don't know where that is, or what it looks like. Can you help me get this...


You will first have to remove the plastic valance from under the wiper blade arms. You may have to remove the arms first. then reach inside and "pop" the ball joints back together

I have a 2000 Kia Sportage, and on the driver side the wiper either goes to far or ends up getting stuck in the other wiper. I removed arm and under the arm the splines for mounting the arm are stripped....


Simple fix:

Use epoxy glue to stick the splines back together. I like to use 'gel epoxy' which is a two step resin/hardener that is mixed together with a stick, and can withstand upwards of 2,000 lbs. of shear force, when applied to a clean and dry surface such as the metal found on windshield wiper blades.

Gel Epoxy will not run like regular 5 minute epoxy, and sets in about 6 minutes. Available at your local Ace Hardware store, or auto parts store, in many cases.

Good luck on this repair.

How do I re-attach my wiper arms?


Start off by putting a cardboard box over the windshield and under the wiper arm to avoid breaking or scratching the windshield.You need to turn on the wiper switch and then turn on the key. When your wiper arm is pointing to the top of the windshield turn off the key to keep it there. Now, depending on the type of wiper arm you have ( bayonet, shepherd hook, L pin or straight arm ) depends on how to remove old arm. Shepherd hook is the most common and has a lock on the blade that needs to be pressed in to release the blade from the arm. Now slide the blade toward the windshield, off of the cradle for the arm. Swivel the cradle so you can slip the blade off from the inside of the arm and reverse procedure to install. The Bayonet, L pin and straight arm styles usually require a small flat blade screwdriver pushed between the body of the blade and the arm, then twist to release blade. Some blades also have a lock that will need to be pressed to release blade from arm, then twist screwdriver to remove. Hope this helps!!

Windsheild wiper does not remain in contact for the full stroke.The blade actually raises off the windsheild.1995 volvo wagon. three sets of blades, two sets replaced by mechanics.


Try this:

With ignition on, turn on wiper switch. When wiper arm gets to point where blade does not touch screen, turn off ignition switch so that wipers do not return to park position. It may take a few goes to stop arm in the right position so repeat process until it is in the best position.

Check main wiper arm and bend slightly towards windscreen so that blade touches screen and there is some spring pressure from the arm to keep blade on screen. Also check that there is no interference between main arm and the section which supports the rubber blade. If you get blade chatter as the arm sweeps, twist the end of the main arm slightly in the opposite direction to the movement that produces the chatter. It may take a bit of trial and error to get it all right.

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.
