Most likely you will have to replace the wiper linkage from the center pivot to the left or drivers-side wiper pivot. The plastic piece in the linkage gets brittle over time and breaks down. To save a hassle in the future, replace both linkages. It should be under $20.00 for parts.

SOURCE: Wiper don.t work

Remove the wiper arms amd the panel between the hood and the windshield. There are teflon bushings on the actuater arms that wear out, they are cheap and available from the dealer but can be tricky to install because of the limited access.

SOURCE: repair steering linkage

You'll have to rent or borrow a pickle fork and a pitman arm puller. There is more than one size of pickle fork so specify for tie rod ends. You can buy them too, about $100 for the pair and they are not vehicle specific.
Jack and block up your front end so the wheels are clear. Take the nut off the tie rod end and wedge the pickle fork between the tie rod and the drag link, rap with a hammer until it separates. Loosen the bolt on the collar and unscrew the tie rod end. Count the turns when you remove it and screw the new one in the same number of turns.Fit it into the drag link and tighten the collar and the new nut.
Take the nut off the idler arm and use the pickle fork to separate it from the drag link. Unbolt the idler arm from the frame. The new one goes on in the reverse.
You'll probably need an adjustable wrench to remove the nut from the pitman arm,it's bigger than most wrench sets. Separate it from the drag link first. Slide the puller on and tighten it up. Once it starts to turn hard, give the bolt on the puller a rap with the hammer and tighten some more. Repeat until the arm comes off. Slip the new one on and tighten.
Don't be shy when you tighten these parts because if there is play, the holes in the drag link will oval out and you will have to replace it too. Don,t use a pickle fork on the pitman arm or you will have to replace the seal in the bottom of the steering box. Hope this helps.

It's low on refrigerant ( probably uses R-134a) available at WalMart. Low refrigerant pressure switch deactivates A/C compressor for safety reasons.

2001 Chrysler Sebring. Wipers do not work on high. What is the likely problem?

Hi John, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair!

The most likely cause for the wipers not working on high speed would be the wiper switch itself. BUT, other things can cause this issue as well. The high speed in the motor can be bad. Hope this helps and if you should find the time please visit my auto repair website here:

2007 Chrysler Sebring 2.4 Where is the Wiper motor AND where is the wiper motor relay???

The wiper motor is located underneath the wiper cowling. This is the piece that the wiper arm pivots come out of and the wiper arm blades attach to. The relay is located in the underhood power distribution center. I am unable to give the exact location, however it may be labeled under the cover top cover.

Passenger windshield wiper does not work, driver side does work. wiper blade frame or wiper motor?

Most likely it is the linkage between the driver and passenger blade arms. The easiest way to find out is to remove the cowling and should see the wiper motor, the motor arm that links to the driver arm and the linkage between the driver arm and passenger arm...this is held together by a plastic clip and that clip is most likely going to be broken when you's fairly easy to replace.

One wiper not working.

if you can move the arm while the wipers are parked, either the linkage popped off or the arm came off the splines. take the cover off where the nut is and see if the arm moves on the shaft, this usually happens when you turn the wipers on and they are frozen, and crank the nut down. I usually put some thread lock on them first.
