Front drivers wiper not working


I have the same problem. When I removed the drivers side wiper arm, I found that the nut that held the arm in place was only finger tight, which allowed the arm to raise slightly off the splined shaft. This caused the shaft to strip the splines out of the wiper arm.. after inspecting and cleaning the shaft, it appears that the splines on the shaft are still in decent shape. You may need to only replace the wiper arm. About $50 at a few online toyota parts sellers. replacing it is simple and requires only a flat blade screwdriver to remove the black cap off the nut, and a wrench to remove and replace the nut. simply remove the nut, and pop off the wiper arm. push the new arm onto the splined shaft pointing the same place as the passenger side wiper, then tighten the nut down. I would also suggest wiping the metal shavings off the splined shaft with some sort of abrasive pad, like scotchbrite, before putting the new wiper arm back on. I hope this helps.

Turned on wipers to clear off snow both worked for a minute then the drivers side stop working and seems to move freely by hand as if linkage is broken


It probibly stripped the insert, if you get a screw driver and pop the cover up, there is a hex nut, remove it, the wiper arm should pop right off, either replace it, switch it to the right side (not recommended unless emergency, big blind spot on right side of winshield) I have cut a piece of a can (aluminum) and placed it between the shaft and the wiper arm, replace the nut and adjust before tighting, it will hold for awhile, Good luck

Windshield shutters while in delayed mode, it


Excessive grease in wiper motor. Motor needs to be removed and the grease cleaned out. Regrease only the areas needing to be greased.

There is also a recall for this vehicle for the wiper module. Call the dealer with your vin # to see if it has been done. I will post the instructions for motor removal and install.

1. Turn the key to the OFF position.
2. Open the hood.
3. Remove the three push-in retainers that attach the air inlet grille (leaf screen) to the plenum sheet metal.
4 . Lower the hood to the secondary latch.
5. Using a suitable marker or masking tape, mark the location on both wiper blades on the windshield.
6. Remove the covers from the nuts that attach the wiper arms.
7. Remove the nuts from the wiper arms.
Important
If the rocking action in the next step fails to loosen the wiper arm, it may be necessary to use a standard top-post battery cable terminal puller to remove the wiper arm.
8. Rock the wiper arms back and forth to loosen and remove them from the wiper transmission shaft.
9. Remove the antenna mast.
10. Remove the 10 mm hex head nut that attaches the left and right ends of the air inlet grille to the plenum sheet metal.
11. Remove the air inlet grille and reposition it up to the windshield. It is not necessary to disconnect the washer hose.
12. Remove the two 10 mm hex head bolts that attach the wiper module to the plenum sheet metal.
13. Disconnect the electrical connector.
14. Position the new wiper module to the vehicle and connect the electrical connector.
15. Install the wiper module in the plenum sheet metal.
16. Install the two 10 mm hex head bolts that attach the module to the plenum sheet metal. Tighten nuts to 30 N·m (22 lb ft).
17.Turn the ignition switch to the ON position, turn the wiper switch ON, and visually verify that the wiper transmissions operate. After visually verifying operation, turn the wiper switch to the OFF position and allow the wiper transmissions to stop moving before turning the ignition switch to the OFF position. The wiper motor will now be in the PARK position.
18. Using the marks or masking tape that were placed on the windshield, align and position the wiper arms on the wiper transmission shafts.
19. Install the nuts on the wiper transmission shafts. Tighten the nuts to 30 N·m (22 lb ft).
20. Install the covers on the wiper arm nuts.
21. Remove the marks or masking tape from the windshield.
22. Open the hood.
23. Install the three push-in retainers that attach the air inlet grille to the plenum sheet metal.
24. Close the hood.
25. Verify that all functions of the wiper system (low, high, delay, etc.) operate properly.

Driver side wiper does not move; passenger side wiper crosses over it


In view of the answer from jchaffcom I feel that if there is a Hex on the end of the Wiper Arm the Hex Nut needs Tightened. I have a 2004 Silverado and this is what happened to it. Simply tightening the Nut solved my problem. Try it and get back to me with the results whether good or bad.

How to replace windshield wiper motor in oldsmobile alero


should be fairly simple. mark the wipers position while they are off for reinstallation. remove the wiper arms by taking the nuts off the bottom side, and gently pry up on them and work them loose. with the hood up, remove the wiper cowl (plastic that runs along the bottom of the windshield). the wiper motor will be on the drivers side. the wiper linkage usually either bolts on directly to the motor shaft with one bolt. take that bolt/nut off, remove the mounting bolts on the motor itself, unplug the motor and remove. to install reverse process and put wiper arms back to the position you marked them.

Driver side wiper wont work


One side does not work? Can you move the arm with your hands? If so, look for a loose nut that holds the wiper arm on. Remove the plastic trim on the wiper arm base, and tighten the 12 millimeter bolt. Please advise if this helps.
