Question about Acura TL

1 Answer

I just purchased new Goodyear windshield wipers from Costco. I have the hook type connector. The passenger side slips out of the hook. It hasn't flown off but I'm afraid it will and of course I noticed it on day in which we're expecting rain for the next 24-48 hours. Are there adapters for hook types that will make the fit snug, or should I return it and hope a replacement blade won't have the same issue?

If you don't hear the wiper blade click in place, it isn't latched. The blades are not a friction fit.

SOURCE: passenger side leak under dash board

Ok take off the windshield wiper arms, then remove the plastic piece under the wipers below the windshield, there is a tray under there and some drain holes, you may have to remove some more plastic pieces once you remove the one below the windshield (some models are slightly different) clear out all the tree leaves and pine needles and such from the tray there are drain holes in the enter, and on each end push a long flexable rod down carefully or compressed air really works the best this is you problem it needs to be done every few years or more often if you park under trees.
If this information is helpful please give me a fixya! Rating , Thank you, Randy

SOURCE: wiper arm goes off of the windshield when it is raining

Sounds like you just nee to remove them and reinstall them in the correct position. Take them off, run the wipers for one cycle until they park. Install the arms so the blade is about an inch above the bottom of the windshield.

SOURCE: driver side wiper won't work, but passenger does

I believe this is a press fit connection. As Knight 007 writes, "it's worn out".

I change mine with the bonnet open - this just allows enough room to lift the blades enough to push the clips loose to release the blade carriers.

hope this helps - good luck.

I have a 2007 mustang an the wipers wont turn off I had 2 pull the fuse to turn them off can u help me


The windshield wiper motor is a smart wiper motor with an integrated electronics module. The internal components of the motor are the high/low relay, washer pump relay, and the run/park relay and associated electronics.
The windshield wiper motor receives its inputs from the windshield wiper/washer switch. These signals are ground reference signals. When the switch is placed in different positions, various input signals are selected and sent through circuits to the motor. The windshield wiper motor module identifies these selected input signals and activates the motor to the selected function.!
Your probably going to need a new wiper motor ! ! ! But you should always test before replacing parts !

Either the wiper arms are loose or stripped on the pivots or the wiper linkage is broken. Try tightening the arm to pivot bolt. If that doesn't work, remove the plastic cowling and examine the linkage. You can buy new linkage for it.

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
.


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

Removal
  • 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.

Installation
  • 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.

Driver side wind sheild wiper not working - passenger side wiper okay. driver side moves a little.


You have an assembly of arms that hook to motor one for each side sounds like your left one has come loose or is at least slipping you will have to remove the crowl panel at the wipers to check .The wiper is held on by a nut. The nut is under a plastic cover at the pivot point of the wiper. Loosen the nut then align the wiper blade where it's supposed to be then tighten the nut.Its not adjusted right, remove the nut that holds your left wiper on, then pry it off the shaft, lift the wiper up all the way then just pull up straight off the shaft, then put it back on so it starts at the left lower edge of the windshield.---- First, start by checking the nut at the base of the wiper arm, if it is good and tight, then you have to remove the cowl and check the wiper linkage.If the linkage has come apart then you will have to replace the piece that has come loose.------
Getting, this possibilities checked will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

2006 hhr passenger side windshield wiper not moving but drivers side is fine??


First remove the complete passenger side wiper check and make sure splines on wiper are not stripped. If this is not the problem It could be a linkage bar from the wiper motor to the wiper off or disconected. Since both wipers share the same motor if one works the other should. Check this by removing both wipers and then "Cawl" (little black piece between the hood and windshield underneath the wipers) Underneath the cawl you should be able to see the windshield wiper motor, and linkage bar to both of the wipers. See if the bar is disconected from the passenger side. If it is than reconnect it. These are the only two possible scenarios.

Passenger side wiper does not work


If the other side works, then it could be that the wiper arm has become loose, either at the pivot, or worse underneath the bezel at the bottom of the windshield.

Usually, windshield wiper blades work in tandem on this type of vehicle.
Reconnecting can solve this problem.

Have to disassemble the vent area below the windshield to reveal the problem underneath.

Good luck on this one.
