Question about 2003 Oldsmobile Alero

1 Answer

Need to replace wiper arms on a 2000 Olds Alero. Have the nut off, but are you to just pry the arm off? It looks like it is attached to a greyish "holder" that is preventing the arm from being pryed off. More muscle?

If you have the nut off, the next step is to pull up on the arm before the hinge, just enough til you start to feel it give. Then you push with the **** of your hand on the hinge and it should start to wiggle up and down. Do this until it becomes loose. If that does not work, call a auto glass installer, and they should be able to help you.

2006 trailblazer washer wiper nozzle removal replacement


the nozzles just snap in from the top.... you first pop the cover at the pivot point of the wiper arm to access the nut. remove said nut. remove the wiper arms (a puller is very useful to avoid damage) , then Remove the air inlet grille panel (held in with pushpins and small 1/4in or 9/32in bolts. disconnect the hoses and squeeze the two tabs that hold them in. because they snap in from the top, i have seen people crush and brake their old nozzles with needle nose pliers. pull the hose through the hole and attach it to the new nozzle...... NOT the recommended procedure, rent or buy a puller that looks like a small two jaw gear puller to save yourself a big headache (mine was only $45). good luck

94 Chevy Lumina APV Wiper arm removal


Lift your hood and look for the end of the wiper arm that is attached to the vehicle and pry the end cap off to exspose the nut, remove the nut with a ratchet and socket and use a small gear puller to pull the wiper arm right off of the shaft. Don't try to pry it off from the bottom because you'll break the plastic cowl underneath and still won't have the arm removed.
The motor is usualy located under the vent that runs along the bottom of the windshield...


I hope this helps.....

I have a 2000 vw jetta, when i turn on wiper blades i can hear the motor but the blades are not engaged


Wiper motor arm disengaged or slipping on drive shaft.

Wiper arms slipping on splines at pivot point of wiper arm.,,,more likely.

Wipers are held to drive splines with a 10mm nut.

Make sure wipers are in in 'parked' position buy turning on ignition and making sure wiper switch is OFF.

Turn off ignition.

Pry off the black round plastic cover off the arm where it attaches at the splines. ( Drive splines on lower windshield cowl.)

Tighten nut/s.

Possible broken linkage on driver's side wiper on 2000 Olds Bravada - how can I check the status -


often the serrations in the base of the arm just strip.so remove the nut at the base of the arm and remove it, do not use the window as a pry or leverage point. turn on the wipers and if the little stub rotates along with the remaining wiper arm what you need is an unstripped wiper arm, junk yard search time. if the little stub is not turning, then you need a new wiper transmission and should do the motor as well given the age. get a manual cheap on ebay to see how to do it.

Rpassenger side windshield wiper arm stopped moving, passenger side is still working


Take a look at and remove the nut which holds the wiper arm down to the little axle/stub. Remove the arm and you will find that the inside barrel of the arm where it attached to the axle is stripped smooth, supposed to be serrated to hold to the axle's serrations. Be careful and do not pry on the glass when removing the arm. Find another wiper arm at a junk yard and replace yours. Make sure you take a good look at the replacement before you buy it. And note that the wiper arms for
driver and passenger are different.

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.

How do I access the windshield wiper assembly?


You have to remove the wiper arms by prying off the black platic piece over the nut. Remove the nut and the wiper arms. There should be 5 places on the black plastic piece that runs the length of the windshield. Remove 4 of them by prying them out. The one is the middle is a screw. Pull away the plastic piece and you should have access to the mechanism below. I think you need to replace the linkage if it has fallen off.

How to a remove the wiper arm


Most windshield wiper arms usually fail due to a loose nut or rusted and worn out parts. Fixing this depends on how the wiper arm attaches to the vehicle. Fixing wiper arm failure is usually as easy as tightening a nut or replacing a worn out or rusted part.

Here is a step by step guide on fixing this issue.

Step1 49869_65x95_aspect.jpg Mark the existing wiper position on the windshield using a crayon. This will help you align the wiper arm correctly when you install a new one. Alternatively you can use the Trucks own markings. At the bottom center of the windshield you will see writing and three small dots. The wiper should rest on top of these dots. Step2 49870_65x95_aspect.jpg Follow the wiper arm down to where it connects with the Truck. You should find a hinged cap at the end. Step3 49871_65x95_aspect.jpg Lift this cap to reveal the nut and screw underneath. Step4 49872_65x95_aspect.jpg Use a wrench (or socket and ratchet) to loosen the nut. Step5 49873_65x95_aspect.jpg Remove the nut completely, leaving the screw stud exposed and the wiper arm free to be removed. Step6 49875_65x95_aspect.jpg Lift the arm straight up. Wiggle the arm and pull upwards at the same time until the arm slides free of the screw. If it seems stuck, push the arm back down and proceed to Step 7. Step7 49876_65x95_aspect.jpg Use a battery cable puller to pry the arm loose. Arrange so the large puller screw cap sits on top of the wiper arm screw. The outside arms have flat fingers that should be fitted underneath the wiper arm. Step8 49877_65x95_aspect.jpg Grasp the handle at the top of the puller and turn clockwise. The puller screw will push down on the wiper arm screw and simultaneously pull up on the wiper arm. A few slow turns should pop the wiper arm free.

Wiper motor linkage


Flip the caps up from bottom of wiper arm to expose where they attach to pivots. There should be a nut holding them on, try snugging that nut up a bit & see what happens. if it helps, remove the nuts, pry the arms off, and clean inside where spline etc., is and re-attach arms in proper(same) spot and tighten nuts again, but be careful not to tighten too much & snap the stud.
