Wipers don't grip rear window

Wiper arms are much neglected for a part that does such hard work. There are 3 main parts, the rubber, the rubber holder which is actually also a sort of spring, and then the arm with its strong spring.

Try replacing the rubber and holder as an assembly which clips onto the end of the arm. This is the most cost-efficient maintenance you can do, and should make a big difference.

The arm and spring can be replaced by undoing a nut under the cover at the top of the wiper arm spindle, but this is far less often needed.

I have a 2006 Saturn Relay 2. My rear wiper motor went and I'm in the process of replacing it. For some reason, I cant get the wiper arm off. Is there a trick to getting the arm off the splined shaft? ...

There is a little lock on the wiper arm. Lift the arm up and slide the lock lever over and this will hold the arm up for you, then just wiggle the arm off the spline.

I have an SW2 Saturn. I need to remove the rear wiper arm and grease the shaft going through the rear window. How do I get the arm off?

good luck with that. dealers used to drill a small hole into the base of the wiper arm and drive a metal screw into it to drive the wiper arm up and off the wiper transmission output shaft. it is very well corroded on so you are going to be buying new.

myself i used to take a hack saw blade and carefully saw the top off of the base of the wiper arm, which would expose the whole end of the output shaft. then put a gear puller on and pop it off.

whatever you do, do not pry on the thing or you will break the rear window. make sure the little slider release clip is pulled out before you pull.

what happens is a plastic gear inside the transmission cracks in half when you turn the wiper on and it meets resistance like ice or rust. i had 4 saturn wagons and just bought a new wiper motor and arm whenever i began the project. put neverseize goop on it before you put it back together.

2000 Saturn LS, windshield wipers park in the middle of the windshield. How can I fix this?

The wipers are parking in the middle because the timing mechanism is off. Once they start doing this it seems to continue to happen so the 1st suggestion is to replace the wiper motor. If U don't want to spend the $ right now it's a pretty easy fix to reset the timing. Park the wipers & remove the wiper arms. Then remove the plastic cowling that covers the wiper motor & the motor assembly. Turn the wiper assembly over without turning the motor. Remove the nut on the arm of the motor. Repostion the arm pointing away from the closet wiper directly inline with the short arm. reassemble.

Either the arm needs to be taken off and repositioned, or the wiper is too long for windshield.

Front wipers are moving very slowly and stop.

there is a fuse for the wipers that has a relay for when the wiper motor heats up like from heavy snow and it can cause some problems so check it or get a good mechanic to look at your position.

Rear window wiper problem

I had a 94 wagon, and have a 99 wagon, and 2001 wagon. I think what you need there is a new rear wiper arm. This is about 44 bucks at The problem is getting the old wiper arm off without breaking the rear window. The corrosion between the wiper arm and the motor output shaft basically turns the metal into one piece, which may well explain why your arm spring is not holding the arm close to the window. Also explains why you cannot find used saturn rear wiper arms or rear motors on ebay. There is a small sliding lock at the base, but having moved it aside you will find the corrosion will not let the arm go anywhere.

Having done this twice, my approach as follows:

Get a new wiper arm

Take a hack saw and carefully saw the top of the wiper arm off exposing the motor shaft end. After spraying WD40 or other corrosion remover on get a small gear puller and pull the arm off the shaft. Use never seize and slide the new one on.

Where is the blower motor in a 2005 L-series Saturn

To access the blower motor, you have to remove the wiper arms and the black cowl cover. Reomove the cabin air filter and you should see it. You must first remove the black plastic frame, and the motor slides out of a channel.
