The promblem is not with your wiper motor, that I am 99.9%, however the issue is probraly with your wiper linkage bar, depending on what car you are talking about. Either the linkage bar that connects to your wiper motor and your wiper arms has become damged or loose, or the smooth gears that connect the linkage and your wiper arm are worn out. Only way to make sure is to take the wiper panel cover off to see if there is damage or loose linkage to the linkage bar.

Windshield wiper arms move all ove rthe windshield incosistently


turn your wipers on and turn the key off when the are about 1/4 to half way up on the winshield and try to pull them one way or the other and see if they move
It really sounds like the wiper transmission arm has gotten stripped the only to fix it is to replace trasmission arm assembly you can get them from your local junk yard cheap!
generally where wiper arms push on there is an additiona part you will have to pull off in order to change the wiper arm assembly

Windshield wipers not parking


The problem could be a bent parking pall bracket. This is usually caused when you wipe snow from windshield using the wipers instead of brushing off. You need to remove both wipers and the cover from the drivers side. Remove the cover over the wiper motor assembly (held by a plastic button). On the right side of the wiper mechanism is a small tab (part of the wiper bracket). This tab needs to be straight for the wiper park pall to rest against.Carefully hammer this tab straight (or you may have to replace bracket, big job) Then cycle the wiper and you will see the assembly return to park position. Re-install all parts in reverse order.
Hope this works for you.

Are trying to remove the blade or the arms?

The arms are released by holding the wiper blade fully extended away from the winshield and wiggle the arms off.

The blades are removed by a little tab where the blade hooks to the arm,using a small screwdriver push down on tab,and slide blade off arm but do not let arm slap windshield as it could crack it,I have seen people pull and the blades suddenly come off and the arm slaps down,yor can put a towel or cloth down where the arm sits against the windshield to prevent the possibilty of the arm slapping down.

1998 buick regal winsheild wipers will not sit in theoff position wipe winshield one last time comes back up and stops in middle of windshield


Does the wiper still make noise like it is trying to go? If so open the cap where is attached and tighten the nut on the wiper. If does not make noise you will need a wiper motor.
