Look on ebay, look on craiglist, call around to local junkyards. Same unit fits more than one model, and more than one year.

How can i do any jobs on my car without a manual

Usually not necessary to remove the whole arm just to change the blades. Most parts stores will do this for you free if you buy the blades from them. Watch and learn. Best wishes.

Driver side wiper is loose. How can i fix it?

you need to pull back the cover and expose the 13mm-15mm bolt that holds down the wiper arm and tighten it, if that doesn't work think about getting a new wiper arm from your local parts store or the dealership.

I have an SW2 Saturn. I need to remove the rear wiper arm and grease the shaft going through the rear window. How do I get the arm off?

good luck with that. dealers used to drill a small hole into the base of the wiper arm and drive a metal screw into it to drive the wiper arm up and off the wiper transmission output shaft. it is very well corroded on so you are going to be buying new.

myself i used to take a hack saw blade and carefully saw the top off of the base of the wiper arm, which would expose the whole end of the output shaft. then put a gear puller on and pop it off.

whatever you do, do not pry on the thing or you will break the rear window. make sure the little slider release clip is pulled out before you pull.

what happens is a plastic gear inside the transmission cracks in half when you turn the wiper on and it meets resistance like ice or rust. i had 4 saturn wagons and just bought a new wiper motor and arm whenever i began the project. put neverseize goop on it before you put it back together.

When I turn the wipers on, i can here the motor but the arms do not move. I just had the bolt tighted about 2 weeks ago.

If both the arms are not moving and you hear the wiper motor running, sounds like you need a new wiper linkage. You can find these used for about 40 bucks and new for about 100 bucks, look on eBay. If it is an L saturn, you can do this yourself rather easily, look on youtube for videos. An S Saturn is a bit tougher, requiring the top of the dashboard to come off. While you are in there it may be a good idea to put a new wiper motor in as well.

I have one wiper that does not work the other stops in the middle of the windshield how can i fix them

The motor could be bad, but it's likely that the ball joint connections under the hood area under the cowl have become disconnected for the one windshield wiper arm.

The connection of the arm that moves should be checked for being at the correct angle for parking.

How to remove a wiper arm from spindle on a 2003 saturn ?

I have same problem. I had HAYES repair manuel, which is not as good as CHILTON. It did not tell you anything about this problem. I called Saturn of Mesquite . The cap on top can be pried off with a very sharp pocket knife. ( You do not need $ 9 special device from auto part store) There is a Hexagon bolt under. Easy to come off. Under that is a washer that will not come off. It does not matter. The arm fits over a screw tha is part of spindle. You absolutely can not get this part off. SATURN OF MESQITE ,TX STATED IT IS PRESSED ON AT THE FACTORY. IT CAN NOT BE REMOVED EXCEPT BY A SPECIAL ( $ 350 TOOL ) THAT IS NOT SOLD AT AUTO PARTS STORES. ONLY THE SATURN MECHANICS HAVE IT. THE MECHANICS HAVE TO BUY THEIR OWN TOOLS TO WORK. THEY BUY FROM SPECIAL SATRUN AND NOT SOLD TO PUBLIC AT ALL.The mechanic was going to be nice and if I drove it in to Saturn he was going to use the tool to take it off for me. I could not drive it in ( inspection went out last month.) He states that if you try any other way you risk cracking windshield, bending the metal part of window wiper mechanical parts under plastic shield, break shield or crack this part and break it. HE DID SAY THIS COULD BE DONE BUT RISKS ABOVE WERE HIGHLY POSSIBLE. He stated get a vey big screw dirver. Very big like you would work on a 18 wheeler etc. put it side ways on side of bar that looks like screw, this is spindle. You will see wiper arm, spindle going throgh it, on top looks like screw / at bottom is another black plastic looking round area. Put screw drive sideways next go spindle. It will rest on black below and support wiper arm. Hold very firm so it doesn not move when you hit is with a hammer. Take hammer and hit top of screw. the spindle will be knocked down and the wiper arm will stay put because of the screw driver metal holding it where it is. If needed hit more than once. The spindle will move down and the arm wil stay where it is. The arm can be lifted off. When you try to get everything in place you will see how easy it is to break windshield, plastic cowl, or metal bars below. Good Luck.

The Wiper Arms are rusting. I want to remove them

The arms themselves are bolted down to the car at the base. Once you pop the hood, you should be able to see the bolts, or you may need to pull back the plastic cover to get to the bolts....

My mk4 golf wiper arms are stopping in the middle of the screen many

Its most likely the wiper mechansim which rusts and jams. You need to take off the wiper arms by removing bolts and pulling off (quite hard). You then take plastic cowling off the car, start with a small knife passenger side and lever off, the rest will unclip as you pull. You will then see the mechanism. It is removed by 3 bolts, unhook the motor and pull the mech out. You will then see which parts are stiff and use a bit of WD40. You may have to take the whole thing apart and clean with wire brush. I tried but still didn't work so had to buy one from a scrap yard.

Hope this helps
