Any suggestions to why the passenger side windshield wiper may not be working?


It is probably just a loose fastener or nut for the wiper arm. There should be a cap that needs to be removed to access the nut. If fastener is tight then it sounds like you have a defective or broken wiper transmission assembly

Replacing rear wiper motor on a 2006 smart fortwo


Open the rear hatch. You must pull off the hatch panel. There you will see 2 bolts holding the motor in place. Remove the wiper arm and the nut under the cover first. Unplug the wires going to the motor. Then remove the 2 bolts to the wiper motor. Install motor with the bolts. Replug in the wires. Reinstall the hatch panel. Then you can reinstall the nut and cover. Reinstall wiper arm. Done.

How to remove wiper arm


Hello,

Please follow the steps below to remove or replace the wiper arm:
  1. With the hood closed, turn the wipers on, when the wipers are in the middle of their arc turn the key to the off position. (Note: if this can't be done because of wiper condition and you want to avoid scratching the windshield please open your hood to gain access)
  2. Locate the mounting clips at the top pivot on the wiper blade
  3. Release the clip and remove the wiper arm
  4. Match the size of the old blade against the new blade to ensure proper fit and operation
  5. Reinstall the new wiper blade and recheck wiper operation
Hope this helped. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

When i use my windsheid wipers it wont trun off? and how to adjust wiper not set right? thanks


try this steps to adjust your wiper.
1. Place the keys in the ignition, turn the keys to accessory mode (key-on/engine off), and make sure the wiper motor switch is in the off position. Turn the ignition switch to the off position and remove the keys. The wiper arms are now in their parked position, although may not be properly aligned.
2. Access the bottom of the compromised wiper blade arm. You may have to open the hood or remove the wiper arm cowling (refer to the owners manual for the removal of the cowling on your specific vehicle if required).
3. Locate the retaining nut at the bottom of the wiper arm assembly. Some models will have a protective plastic cap covering the nut. Other vehicles may have a hinged cover that is part of the wiper arm itself. Pry the cap off with a straight-edge screwdriver or unsnap the hinged cover by prying it up from the bottom of the wiper arm with the screwdriver to reveal the retaining nut.
4. Hold the wiper arm stable with one hand and remove the nut with the ratchet and a socket with the other.
5. wiggle the wiper arm gently with one hand while gently prying the base of the arm off the splinter wiper arm stud. The stud has a small spline that holds the wiper arm in the correct position unless otherwise compromised. The wiper arm will feel secured to the stud, but the combination of wiggling gently and prying with the screwdriver will work to remove the arm.
6. Place the arm back into the splined wiper arm stud by positioning it in the off position. some vehicles may have a wiper arms stop that the arm rests in the off position. If so, make sure that the wiper arm is resting against the wiper arm stop when replacing it on the stud.
7. Replace the retaining nut and tighten with the ratchet socket. repaet this procedure with the other wiper arm if desired.
8. use 2 sets of pliers to bend the wiper arm back into position if the wiper arm has been bent. Hold the wiper arm with one set of pliers to anchor it and use the other set to bend it so the wiper is perpendicular to the windshield. If the arm is bent too badly,replacing the wiper arm maybe a more viable option.
9. Inspect the wiper blades.check them for tears in the rubber blades, dry cracking or flimsiness.Replace the wiper blades if necessary.

I have a 92 chevy S10 truck, how do you remove the wiper blades and arms?


GM S10/S15/Sonoma Pick-Ups 1982-1993 Repair Manual Blade and Arm - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
(see Figures 1, 2 and 3)
  1. Matchmark the base of the wiper arm to the linkage. This will assure the arm is installed in the proper position. If the arm is being replaced, transfer the matchmark from the old component to the new one before installation. This can be done by placing the new arm on top of the old one and copying the mark.

Fig. 2: If no wiper arm tool is available, use a small prytool to depress the spring

5227e24.jpg

Fig. 3: With the spring released, pull the wiper arm from the linkage
  1. Most wiper arms are retained by a spring clip. Some are equipped with a release tab at the center which should be depressed to release the arm. If no tab is provided, use a small prybar or a wiper arm removal tool such as J-8966 to depress the spring and release the arm. Remove the arm from the vehicle.
  2. Some late model vehicles (all 1993 and some earlier models) are equipped with a wiper arm that utilizes a small release hole at the base of the wiper arm. If equipped, insert a 1 / 8 in. drift pin into the tool access hole to release the locking device and allow the arm to be easily pulled from the transmission. If necessary, use a gentle rocking motion to remove the arm.
To install:
  1. Except for late model vehicles equipped with the tool access hole, align the matchmarks and gently press the blade over the linkage and snap into position.
  2. For 1993 vehicles (and earlier models equipped with the access hole on the arm) straighten the arm assembly and insert the pin. Align the arm with the linkage mark made earlier, then press down on the arm's head casting until it seats and locks onto the wiper pin. Remove the drift pin.
  3. Operate the wipers and verify proper alignment.

Hope helps (remember rated this).

How do you remove the windshield wiper arms


The wiper arms have a push in tab at the very bottom at the fitting that is pressed into the wiper linkage below the screen. Use a flat headed screwdriver to pry out the tab. Once out the arm can be pulled right off. Now you can remove the cowling screen

How to Replace Windshield Wipers


You need to replace only the wiper blades which are attached to the wiper arm with a clip, simply press the clip and slide the old wiper blade out of the arm, looks like a "u" bend so you need to pull it down opposite the bend, then put in the new wiper blade in reverse way only you don't need to press the clip. Once you hear the click and the blade does not move in the arm, job is done.

Removing wiper Arms from 2006 Jetta TDI


You will need a wiper arm puller to get these off or go back to where you had the work done and have them fix it seen as how they messed it up in the first place.

How do you remover the wiper arms?


Yes you must remove the arms, to do so, just use a standard screw driver to remove the caps covering the arm securing nuts on the arm drive shaft. The arms are secured on the shaft by splines and you should mark the arms in order to replace them in the exact position they are removed on drive spline. Lift the arms all the way up to avoid the spring tension when removing from the spline. Then you will need to remove the other panels that cover the motor and arm power shafts etc. Hint... disconnect as little as possible to accomplish the swap.
