How to replace the wiper motor on a 1994 volkswagon golf

The wiper motor on a Volkswagen is an electric motor connected through a drive linkage to the wiper arms. Windshield wipers are an integral feature for operating a motor vehicle safely. If your wipers are not functioning, or seem to lack the speed or power they used to have, the wiper motor should be removed and replaced immediately

  • The wiper motor on a Volkswagen is located directly underneath the plastic cowl cover. The cowl cover is located directly below the windshield.

  • Begin by removing the wiper arms by prying off the covers at the base of the arms and removing the nuts that secure the arms to the drive shafts. Label the passenger and driver arms so they can be installed in the same positions. They are not interchangeable. Remove the rubber hood to cowl weather seal. Unscrew the plastic fasteners from the driver's side of the cowl cover, then remove this half of the cover. Remove the fasteners from the passenger's side cowl cover and remove this half of the cover. Disconnect the windshield wiper motor wiring harness by separating the plastic wiring connector. Remove the three bolts that secure the wiper motor to the vehicle's body. Pull the motor slightly away from the body, then remove the nut that connects the motor shaft to wiper linkage. Remove the motor.

  • Place the new wiper motor into position in the cowl and reconnect it to the wiper arm linkage. Then reinstall the three retaining bolts. Reconnect the plastic wiring connector to the wiper motor wiring harness. Place the cowl covers into position below the windshield and reinstall the plastic fasteners that retain them. Reinstall the rubber hood to the cowl weather seal. Reinstall the wiper arms in the same position you removed them from, along with the wiper arm retaining nuts and lower wiper arm covers. Turn the windshield wipers on and test for proper operation. If the wiper blades slap against the bodywork surrounding the windshield, loosen the nuts that connect the wiper arms to the shafts and adjust.

Wind shield wiper arm does not hold blade tight against window

I can get the old wiper blades off my 2008 avalon but don't know how to put on new ones. do you have to remove something from old blade?

  1. After you have removed the old wiper blade make sure to remove any adapter left behind on the actual wiper arm as the new blade should come with a multi use adapter.
  2. It should just be a bare metal rounded hook bar now.
  3. Now if there is not adapter on the new wiper blade then put the one provided on. Often times the wiper blade comes with this adapter already on the wiper blade.
  4. Pull the wiper arm out a bit and set the new blade under the open section of the wiper arm.
  5. That adapter will have a little play to it.
  6. Push it up a bit so it fits in the slot on the wiper arm and pull up on the wiper blade and the blade should "click" into place.
Do the same for the other side and your good to go. I also recommend Raine X for your windshield. My experience as a mechanic and a storm chaser has proven Rain X to be invaluable in severe weather.

U need a socket or a wrench, 13mm i think, then just follow these instructions

  • 2

    Remove the nut from the wiper stud with your socket set.

  • 3

    Grab the wiper arm where it slips over the wiper stud with one hand and pull straight up to remove the old wiper arm. Discard the old arm.

  • 4

    Align the splines in the new arm with the splines in the wiper stud, making sure the wiper arm aligns properly in conjunction with the windshield, and push the arm down onto the wiper stud by hand.

    Thread the nut back onto the wiper stud and tighten it down with the socket set. Push the trim cover over the stud and nut until it clicks into position.

    Passenger side windshield not working ?

    If you mean the wiper is not working most likely you need a replacement wiper arm. Find one at a junk yard for a few bucks. The Saturn arms are all pretty much the same size, take your old one with you to make sure. Pull off the plastic cap if it is still there and unscrew the nut holding the arm to the wiper transmission stem. Note the male stem and the female arm inside are fluted or cerrated. Often this is ground away on the old arm, meaning it will not hold to and be moved by the stem. This is also why you want to look at the new one before you buy it so you do not end up with another stripped out wiper arm. Do not pry on the glass to remove the arm unless you also want to find a new windshield. A gentle rocking motion will eventually get it lose and some WD40 may help as well..

    How do I get the old wipers off my hyundai 2000 elantra wagon and put on new armour all wiper blades?

    The old wiper blade assembly can be pushed out of the end of the wiper arm. Depending on the blade, you may need to use a screwdriver to depress a locking tab on the blade assembly. The new wiper blade snaps into place on the end of the wiper arm. Also, your new wiper blades usually come with diagrams/instructions. Check them.

    Rear window wiper problem

    I had a 94 wagon, and have a 99 wagon, and 2001 wagon. I think what you need there is a new rear wiper arm. This is about 44 bucks at The problem is getting the old wiper arm off without breaking the rear window. The corrosion between the wiper arm and the motor output shaft basically turns the metal into one piece, which may well explain why your arm spring is not holding the arm close to the window. Also explains why you cannot find used saturn rear wiper arms or rear motors on ebay. There is a small sliding lock at the base, but having moved it aside you will find the corrosion will not let the arm go anywhere.

    Having done this twice, my approach as follows:

    Get a new wiper arm

    Take a hack saw and carefully saw the top of the wiper arm off exposing the motor shaft end. After spraying WD40 or other corrosion remover on get a small gear puller and pull the arm off the shaft. Use never seize and slide the new one on.
