That's normal if the windows are very dry or until a few uses of the news blades will break them in. Try squirting washer fluid on the window the first few times until they smooth out

Wipers at Hi and Lo speeds work; so does intermittent wipers. However, a clicking sound from behind the glove box starts and the wipers will stop and go or retract and not come back up until the clicking...

Check your charging system! That sounds like low voltage starvation. If a weak battery has a heavy load on it, such as a wiper motor, the electromechanical relay may drop out or "buzz," which interrupts the circuit at high speed, stopping the wiper because there is insufficient current available. You could simply have dirty (or corroded) battery connections!

How to install a windshield wiper blade

You will need new wiper blades before you can perform a wiper blade replacement project. Get your "owner's car manual" as it will tell you everything you need to know about the wipers' size and type. The manual may also give you list of brands you can choose from for you wiper blades.

  1. Buy the correct wiper blades, make sure you have bought the entire blade and not just the rubber insert. Read the instructions properly before you begin. It will show you how to perform the wiper blade replacement.
  2. Take the wiper arms off the windshield. You will have to remove the old wiper blades very carefully so you don't hurt yourself. Wear kitchen gloves if you don't want to get your hands dirty or cut yourself.
  3. Push on the tab of the old wiper blades and pull them out. You can also use a small screwdriver to lift the tab.
  4. Take the new wiper blades and insert it in the arms very carefully. Don't push too hard, but do it gently. It will easily slide itself in. You will hear a "click" sound when the entire blade has gone inside.
  5. Wiggle or shake the new wiper blades to see they are secured properly and won't fly away when you turn them on. If all looks good, lower the wiper arms back on the windshield. And you're done!

Why do front wipers on1999 Ford Windstar stick when window is dry work fine when window is wet ?

wiper blades are miniature squeegees and need water to lubricate the surface so that the dry rubber doesn't stick to the glass and so jump. The problem is made worse if the blades are old and hard.

Front Wipers - not working

If you can move the wiper blades by hand, you probably broke-stripped the gear in the wiper motor.

2000 HYUNDAI ACCENT, problem is the Windshield Wiper operation is malfunctioning, in the Delay mode, and in the off position, Windshield Wiper arms/blades stop at the half point on the Windshield glas

The park position is controlled inside the motor/actuator assembly. Not sure if it can be repaired. See if it is assembled with screws versus rivets. A new assembly is less than $100.

1997 mercury grand marquis wipers

We have the same problem on our 97 Grand Marquis. We have replaced the wiper blades and the drivers wiper arm with a used one. The problem was not completely solved but it did work better. We are going to replace the arm with a new one and see if that works better.

I need to have 'step-by-step' instructions for replacing the driver side windshield wiper arm on my 2000 Ford Explorer. Can you help me with this?

  • Turn your wipers off, using the stalk on the left side of your steering column. Turn your ignition off and remove the key.

  • 2

    Pull the wiper blade up to lift it to the service position. Pull the front part of the blade down to position it at an angle.

  • 3

    Pull back the lock pin on the center part of the wiper blade (where it connects to the wiper arm). This unlocks the blade from the wiper arm.

  • 4

    Grasp the blade on each side and pull it down (away from the extended wiper arm) to release it from the "U" clip.

  • 5

    Repeat the process for the other wiper blade, if desired. Removing the driver's side and passenger's side wiper blade is the same.

  • 6

    Install the new wiper blade. Open the lock pin on the new blade, and then insert it into the wiper arm "U" clip. Close the lock pin and lower the wiper blade to its normal position.

    How do I remove front wiper blades to replace with new ones on my 2006 nissan quest

    How to Replace Wiper Blades Guide:
    Potential tools needed to replace wiper blades:
    • Flat blade screwdriver (small)
    • Small nosed pliers
    • Latex or vinyl gloves
    • Safety goggles
    To replace wiper blades the actual action of replacing the blade is no big deal, it's the location of the blade down below the hood that can make it difficult though. Sometimes it helps to open the hood to gain access to the wiper blades. Other times it is helpful if the wiper blade is somewhere in the motion line of wiper action. The trick is to get the wiper to stop somewhere in the wiper arc. Turn the wipers to the on position and allow the wipers to start, and then shut the key off when the wiper has arrived in a desirable position on the windshield. To replace your wiper blades please follow the step by step instruction below. Also, watch the How to replace wiper blades video below to gain additional information. The method in which the wiper blades are attached will vary slightly.
    • Step 1: With the hood closed, turn the wipers on, when the wipers are in the middle of their arc turn the key to the off position. (Note: if this can't be done because of wiper condition and you want to avoid scratching the windshield please open your hood to gain access)
    • Step 2: Locate the mounting clips at the top pivot on the wiper blade
    • Step 3: Release the clip and remove the wiper arm
    • Step 4: Match the size of the old blade against the new blade to ensure proper fit and operation
    • Step 5: Reinstall the new wiper blade and recheck wiper operation

    Common Problems:
    • Make sure the wiper blades are the same size as the original blades.
    • When replacing wiper blades not getting the blade on the mounting pin completely allowing the wiper arm to become dislodged and possibly causing damage to the windshield.
    • Using wiper blades after the blade has failed permanently damaging the windshield by craving scratches in the wiper arc.
    • Wiper blade can create a chattering noise when the blade is not properly balanced allowing the blade to "flop" back and forth as the wiper direction changes.

    I hope help you with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.

    My wiper blades stop working.

    This sounds like the wiper motor. The brushes/commutators in the motor are probably fouling up. At high speed more current is sent to the motor so it works. If you replace the wiper motor this should solved the problem.
    For the wiper pump check the fuse.
    Then check to see if the fluid tube is clear and not plugged.
    Finally check/clean electrical contacts on pump motor and if you can heard the wiper pump motor running when activated. If not replace pump motor. (they do wear out)

    These parts can be gotten at auto recyclers also.
