Question about 1997 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

My 1997 Chevy Blazer driver side wiper moter asks as if the bolt connecting the arm is either lose or stripped. The arm/blade ends up going off the windshield. I am able to push it back down to normal, but after about 5-6 wipes it gets off again. How do I remove the cap of the arm so I can either tighten the bolt or determine if it is stripped?

WINDSHIELD WIPER REMOVAL


Open the cap at the end of the windshield wiper arm at the cowl of the Blazer.This will reveal the bolt that secures the wiper arm to the wiper linkage.unbolt the wiper arm using a 3/8-inch ratchet and socket. Place the bolt to the side, as you will reuse it later. Pull the wiper arm up at the blade so that the blade of the wiper is pointing into the air. Then pull at the base of the arm, wiggling it slightly. It's a keyed gear, so it may take a little bit of work to break it free, but with the right amount of wiggling, it will disengage. goodluck

    Passenger windshield wiper does not work, driver side does work. wiper blade frame or wiper motor?


    Most likely it is the linkage between the driver and passenger blade arms. The easiest way to find out is to remove the cowling and look...you should see the wiper motor, the motor arm that links to the driver arm and the linkage between the driver arm and passenger arm...this is held together by a plastic clip and that clip is most likely going to be broken when you look...it's fairly easy to replace.

    Drivers side windshield wiper not moving


    The bolt that holds the wiper on is loose. There is a little plastic cap at the other end of the wiper arm, the side away from the wiper blade. Remove the cap and tighten the bolt. That should get it going again.

    Wiper issue


    wiper arm bolt needs to be tighened, or more common the arm needs to be replaced. where the bolt is the end arm insert is made of soft led as to strip out if arm becomes binded by snow, tree branch etc so the more expentise linkage or wiper trasmisson, or motor do not become damaged.
