Question about 1984 Dodge D150

1 Answer

My wipers are not working on my 1984 dodge pick up. I looked into the grill cover where the window meets the hood, and I can see that the rod that moves the wipers is disconnected from the motor. I can fix this, BUT how do I get the wiper arms off to remove the Grill Cover?????

I believe that when you hinge the arms forward and look down at the inside, bottom of the arms(at the base) you should see a small trigger mechanism....depress that and pry your arms off at the base with a screwdriver, now the arms are splined so they will only slide off that spline one way,and that makes it easy to re-install them, hope this works for ya.

My windshield wipers will not work but i hear the motor trying to work. what does this mean? are they totally broke or is there a simple fix?


Sounds like the link rod has popped off or the wiper arm nuts need tightened. When the wipers freeze to the windshield and you start the wipers to clear the snow this will either strip out the wiper arms or pop the linkage rod off. Always pull the wipers away from the windshield before you start the wiper motor in cold weather to be sure they are not frozen to the windshield. Ok how to repair. Grab the wiper arms and see if they freely move in thier normal pattern with power off. Do they move independantly of each other ? If your lucky the nut holding the arms to the pivot just needs tightened. At the base of each arm is a black cover you have to pry up th see the nut. If not remove the wiper arms and inspect to see if they are stripped out. If they are stripped out bad enough you may have to replace them. If not then the linkage has popped off beneath the drainage grill. To see the link rods move look down thru the grill with the wiper motor running and the wiper arms off and you may see the rod flopping around. Now pry the plastic grills off, with the power off, left side first to get to the rod. Look to see if the plastic retainer in the end that fell off is still ok if so just line it up and give it a smack to pop it back on to the ball stud. If the shaft that is installed onto the motor is spinning but not moving the rod the motor must be replaced. Oopen hood and remove three bolts holding the motor to the firewall to remove it. Just reverse the process to reinstall. Thanks for asking at Fixya.com.

Passenger side wiper does not work


If the driver side wiper is working then the linkage under the long thin grille at the lower of the windshield has disconnected. You can remove the screws from the wiper cover assy cover and usually snap the link rod back on fairly easy. This usually happens when folks do not take the time in winter to clear the windshield of ice before turning on the wipers. If the wiper blades are stuck to the windshield and you turn them on this linkage will pop off and you can also strip out the wiper arm where it bolts on to the pivot, you can should try and tighten this nut first and get lucky. See if the pivot is moving is so tighten the nut at the bottom of the wiper arm. If the pivot is not turning it is the link rod.

Am looking to replace my windshield wiper motor,


It is located under the hood just in front of the windshield on the firewall. You need to remove the plastic grill that covers the wiper assembly & remove the appropriate hardware holding the wiper motor in place. Good luck!

My ford explorer hood is stuck down the release does not work


law down on the ground pull yourself under the front bumper look up and locate the hood latch, use long rod or screwdriver and pry the latching lever to release hood, sometimes can be accesed thorough the grill with a flashlight. look for where the cable meets the latch....and if you cant even get to it at all (at all!) then you will have to locate the cable under the dash where it meets the firewall.... cut it to access the cable inside and pull to release. once cut obviously will need a new one.

Have 1989 New Yorker, looks like a pin wiper blade replacement, but there is no place to snap off the cover over the pin.


i believe that this wiper is actually a hook type where you remove the whole blade assebly by pushing in the sides at the connection where the blade meets and then pulling down the whole wiper blade from the rod it connects to(in other words if you pull the wiper blade upright and away from the window you actually pull the whole blade assembly doown towArds the hood)

1990 dodge ram pickup wiper stopped working. Motor works and I can see it turning by looking through the slotted panel just below the windshield. There is a metal piece about 3" long connected to the motor...


First you have to remove the metal caps covering the wiper blade locking nut then remove the nut and leftthe wiper arm assembly up and rock back and forth till loose. then pull arm off as you wiggle the arm. next raise the hood and remove the 4 inside screws at the back of the hood remove the valance and the 2 plastic holding clamps then lift up. Once you have valance off look to see if the gears are stripped on the motor or the shaft if they are go to a junk yard and buy new parts. you will find the short rod and a long rod, they should be connected, if not the ball on the end of the long rod may have poped out turn on key then wiper motor and watch the parts move. You will be able to see it right away.
Hope this helps. If you need more asstance please post here and thanks for using fix-ya
