When you turn on the wipers, they do not move but u can hear the motor running


the arm has come off the wiper motor drive just push it back on ,

Snow on windows and wife turned on wipers and they didn't come on 20006 maxima ..


wipers dont do very well in ice and snow after the snow and ice was cleared did they work again if not check fuse if fuse is good
First: is it the wipers, wiper arms or motor that is at fault? Most times it is the ball joint piece that comes off, disabling the wipers, and the motor is still good. This reauires replacement of the wiper arm mechanism that has the "socket" on the end, a plastic part. If it is the motor, read on... The motor is located on the passenger side, mounted on the firewall. It "connects" to the arms that move the wipers via a ball joint. The wiper arm has a plastic part that has to be "popped" off the ball of the motor to be able to remove the motor. It simply snaps back on. You facillitate this by removeing the black plastic air vent screen that runs across the engine are near the window. After removing this you will see the arms that control wiper movement. It helps to "undo" the ball/socket if the motor is loose also. Install is just the reverse.

I installed a new wiper motor. I ran it before installing the wiper arms. it will not stop at zero. it over travels down into the cowling. I try to rest them higher then they stop some where in the middle...


Try to run the motor without the wiper arms tightened down and turn it off so it can cycle down to its rest state. Then install the wiper arms.

Make sure, that the car's windshield wiper wiring is correct for this motor.

2004 Pontiac Grand Prix....Wipers are moving slowly


How to fix slow wipers on 2005 Grand prix
    -Remove black plastic caps on the wiper towers (end of wiper arm)
    -Undo nuts (13mm)
    -Make note of the wiper arms positions when in park so they can be reinstalled in the same spot. Also make note of the routing of the washer supply lines so you can reinstall them in the same position. Use a puller and pull off wiper arms. I did not have a puller but used a small c-clamp, jammed one end under the wiper arm and screwed the clamp into the wiper post (be careful with the threads, maybe leave the nut on loose until the arms break fee.
    -Move the wiper arms and washer supply line to the top of the engine to be out of the way.
    -Remove the rubber hood weather strip and store out of the way.
    -Remove both sides of the plastic cowl cover, there are 3 expansion clips, use a screw driver or wire cutters to pry out the pin first, then pry out the clip itself using same tools. Move the covers up onto the windshield so they are out of the way.
    -The entire wiper motor/transmission, wiper towers and arms are now exposed
    -Remove the arm from the motor that runs across to the passenger side wiper tower. This will make it much easier to remove the wiper assembly. The arms have a plastic end that snaps over a ball, these can be removed by prying off with a thin pair of pliers.
    -There are 3 bolts (10mm) holding the wiper assembly to the cowl. A 4th attachment point is merely a rubber end that fits into a slot in the cowl. Remove the 3 bolts and pull the wiper assembly from the car. Undo the electrical connection by pulling straight out.
    -In most cases the ball and plastic end of the arms will not be seized. These can each be removed, cleaned, regreased and reassembled. Just push back on with a large pair of pliers.
    -In my situation the driver's side tower and wiper shaft were moving freely. The passenger side was almost seized solid which is what causes the wipers to run real slow.
    -The wiper shaft must be freed up and removed from the tower so that it can be cleaned, greased and reassembled. The hardest part is removing the small C clip at the top of the wiper shaft that holds the shaft in the tower. C clip pliers or other means can be used to remove this clip. Be careful you don't break it or lose it. Once the C clip is removed the shaft can be removed from the tower. I did this by soaking with penetrating oil and tapping it in and out and working it back and forth with large pliers. Again be careful with the threads on the shaft. Put the nut on and use a brass hammer. You cannot hammer real hard as the tower is cast aluminum and may break if hit too hard. By being patient I was able to work the shaft free from the tower, clean both well with emery paper, grease and reassemble.
    -Overall reassembly is merely a reversal of the disassembly, being careful to put everything back in its proper place and order.
    -Leave the arm off running from the motor to the passenger side tower as this will allow the wiper assembly to go back in place much easier. Once the wiper assembly is bolted back in place, snap the arm into place over the ball at the motor after greasing.
    -Before reinstalling the plastic cowl coverings, it is a good time to replace your air conditioning intake filter in the cowl on the passenger side.
    -The above process took me about 3 hours start to finish and is moderate difficulty. Once completed the wipers run and park just like new, and it didn't cost me a dime.

How to change rear wiper motor?


Take the metal Wiper Arm up off the window.
These are held-on by a "U" clip on the Blade which is snapped into the "U" shape of the metal Arm.
On the Plastic "U" clip is a Release Tab.
Press the Release Tab while pulling the Wiper Blade (not arm) out of the "U" of the Arm.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!
FYI: Sometime the Arm and/or Blade gets bent or warped, causing it not to make full contact with the window. People change their Blade, only to find out their Arm was warped. Inspect this and adjust the Arm (gently) if this is the case.

The wiper motor on my 1983 Ford Ranger still works but the wipers no longer move. I think there is a failure of the mechanical linkage. Where do I go to find repair parts?


why do you think the motor still works if the wipers don't move? Can you hear the motor run or can you see a little movement when you turn the switch on?

What happens when you activate the washers?

go to a salvage yard that allows you to remove the parts yourself. Then you can see how the motor and linkage assembly comes out.


don't have 1983 info, but here is 1994:

Windshield wipers will not move. Arms from motor


Hello

The windshield wiper linkage comes as an assembly. The assembly comes with the two rotating splines that the wiper arms attach to. you must remove wiper arms. Remove cowl trim and remove bolts that hold the pivot points to the body. The new linkage that snaps to the wiper motor should come with a new retaining clip. You have to fish the linkage assembly through the access holes in the body by un bolting the wiper motor.

Replace wiper arm on 1998 vw passat


Does the wiper motor work ? Check for any horseshoe clips that it might have. If you removed the nut that holds the wiper arm in place at the motor, then you may have to pry it up not using too much force . And being careful to place something underneath the pry tool so no damage will occur.
