You can purchase a self locking nut with a nylon washer for a few cents.

My 2000 Acura TL wiper arms bang the cowling and pillar. What is wrong

might be someone took the whole arm off to paint em or whatever so while they are in the off position check to make sure they don't need a quick adjustment for example if they are flat/level with the windshield lower seal if they are than you got the wrong size blades if they are off a little than remove clip holding the windshield wiper arm and slide off of the cog and move it a couple teeth till its flat than check your work by turning the wipers on if they aren't perfect than keep adjusting till they are on both sides

One windshield wiper is working, but the other isn't

When one windshield wiper isn't working like it should it may be a loose nut. The nut is located at the base of the wiper arm. There may a plastic tab covering the top of the wiper joint. You should see the nut when the tab's removed. <br /> Check the nut for tightness. If it's loose the wiper pattern will probably need readjusting. Reset the arm by loosening the nut to where you'll be able to move the arm. Set the arm where you believe the it should be. Tighten the nut and run the wipers. If the wipers are working well with each other, and you're satisfied with the windshield coverage finish tightening the nut. Replace the plastic tab.<br /> If the nut comes loose repeatedly you may want to apply a small amount of threadlock to the threads before readjusting the wioer and tightening. Use only a small amount of threadlock.

2000 Buick Regal windshield wipers stopped working during hard rain.

Make sure wiper arms are tight they are on a spline also where the wiper arm transmissin conects to the wiper motor therw is a nut that holds a z shaped bracket that losens up and oblongs the rectangular slot so the wipers stop with the least resistance.

Where is the location of acura tl 2004 wiper motor?

The wiper motor is located in the left rear of the engine compartment near the corner by the driver side. Remove the wiper arm assembly (both if necessary) and then remove the plastic cover at the edge of the hood near the windshield the motor is underneath. To remove the wiper arm flip up the small cover where the arm is attached and you will find a (12mm usually) nut. Remove the nut and work the arm off of the post using a rocking motion. Hope this helps.

Passenger windshield wiper quit working

if the passanger wiper stopped working AND the drivers side is still of two problems. the easiest is to pop off the black cap at the base of the wiper arm, under it you will find a nut. check to see the nut is tight. turn the wipers on and observe the post that the nut is on, if it is turning, then the nut needs to be tightened or the spline on the post or wiper arm is stripped. If the post is not turning, then most likely an arm on your wiper assembly has come off, remove the wiper arms remove the black plastic cowl and you will find the wiper arm assembly.
good luck. HTH

1996 Acura 3.2 TL windshield wiper problem

they have what one guy, I know called a small "transmision" that engages both wipers and the speed. On one car the winshield wipers transmission connections were loose. A small bolt came off.
Check all the workings by running the wipers .
Try to get to the wiper motor assembly and take a look at it. You may have to remove some screws.
