Hi - had the same problem with mine last year - turned out to be a sticky relay. You can probably hear it clicking with each wipe. These are well over £20 from the dealer, around £5-10 from a breaker, or if you like a challenge (like me) you can unclip the plastic cover off the relay and lightly dress the contacts with a nail board! Good luck.

The drivers side wiper will not sweep, when I turn on the wipers the passenger side works fine. The driver side attempts but doesnt sweep. So I doubt its the wiper motor. any ideas are welcome.


check the nut at the base of the wiper arm . There is a splined taper on the end of the wiper arm shaft and if this is loose then the arm shaft moves but it turns inside the base of the wiper arm.

Fix monowiper park position on mercedes c 200 class


Does the wiper sweep past the park correct park position before parking or does it just never go low enough. If it doesn't go low enough, simply loosen the wiper arm from the transmission and lower the wiper arm to the correct park position. If it sweeps past the park position you need to disconnect the motor from the transmission when the motor is in the park position. The move the transmission to the park position and reattach it to the motor.

2000 Pontiac Montana with a wiper problem


Check the crank arm on the wiper motor. There is a bracket under the crank arm that has a small upward part on it that the bottom of the crank arm is supposed to stop on when its shut off.

Put the wiper in the pulse position and turn the key on. let the wipers sweep one time then turn off the key.

Look under the crank arm to see where it stopped. It should be no farther than 5 mm from the bracket stop. The stop is often times bent or worn out. You will need to replace the crank arm and the bracket in most cases.

My 07 nissan murano rear windshield wiper doesn't work properly it goes the wrong way, not on the window.


You need to adjust the wiper arm location. Loosen the 12 mm or 10 mm nut that holds the rear wiper arm. Wiggle the arm until it comes off. Then turn on the rear wiper for a second and turn it off, leaving the key on. This way the rear wiper motor will do it's sweep, and them park where it's suppose to. Then reattach the rear wiper arm and secure the nut and recheck.

Thanks Jay!

1998 Audi A6 Wiper Motor Removal Process


Hi Marc,

We have a 2002 Audi A6 and I've just been doing a bit of self help to try and fix the inoperative wiper - the problem is one of the spindles on which ht ewiper arm sits is stuck - I managed to bang it out, grease it and put it back - but I just can't get the wipers positioned properly so that they sweep and park correctly - anyhow, back to your problem which presumably you have sorted by now? There are 3 clips fixing the cowl to the vehicle - one on the left, the centre and on the right hand side - the clips simply pull away but it is easier to do if you have a long nose pliers.

Good luck

2001 Audi A4 Windshield Wiper Issues....Work on their own


The most likely cause of your symptoms is the wiper motor parking relay has become faulty, however there is a slim possibility the connections within your wiper switch could be an issue, but the relay would be my first and cheepest line of enquiry. Contact your local VAG dealer and expect to pay somewhere in the region of £15. Good luck
