Hi there. the wiper control arm, if it is the outer one it can be easy to replace.
Just remove the cap at the bottom of the arm, there is a nut. Unscrew the nut and put the new arm on.
It's that easy!!
Ps Before you do this make sure the arm is at the position from when it start's from, that way you will have it right.

I hope it help's

I have a 2002 chevy venture and the front wipers quit working and i still hear the motor running.Stuck need help to solve this problem???

If the motor is working, the linkage between the motor and the wipers has broken. I don't have a Venture, but usually there is a plastic panel below the windshield, where the wiper arms are mounted. You remove the wiper arms, then remove the plastic panel (might be screws or it might just snap out) to get at the linkage and motor. Dealer or auto parts store should be able to order new linkage arms for you.

Rear wiper arm will not move i can hear motor working.

the ball joint may have snapped inside so the motor is no longer attached to the arm, has it been used in freezing conditions? often they snap this way, also the ball joint may have just popped off, you will ned to open it up, they are fairly straight forward so the problem would be obvious once open.

How to remove wiper arms from truck

Lift the wiper blade off the windshield
On the right side of the arm, where it goes over the serrated drive wheel,there is a little metal slide.
Move it out to the right, and take off wiper arm

Now to do it real easy,you buy a tool from Snap-On, you will love
It hooks over the end of the arm,you wrap you fingers around the arm, to remove spring tension.
Really nice tool and easy to use

2000 Elantra- wipers were frozen with ice. Switch turned on and something "broke". Wipers no longer work. How do I fix the problem?

pop the hood, the wiper motor should be on the firewall, take it off and start from there. it seems like the arm snapped (or fell off hopefully), easy fix.
next time just flip the wipers up when its icy, if you can remember to

Windshield wipers will not move. Arms from motor


The windshield wiper linkage comes as an assembly. The assembly comes with the two rotating splines that the wiper arms attach to. you must remove wiper arms. Remove cowl trim and remove bolts that hold the pivot points to the body. The new linkage that snaps to the wiper motor should come with a new retaining clip. You have to fish the linkage assembly through the access holes in the body by un bolting the wiper motor.

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee wipers not working

the relay is dirt cheap at the store (8-12 dollars), the relay is easy to find. on top of the engine area back near the firewall is a small to medium sized black box with a snap up lid...there are relays just sitting inside of it, you want the one with 3 prongs going across the bottom and 2 prongs going front to back on the bottom. it's a big square piece that just pulls out. the wiper fuse is kinda a pain to get to busy easy to replace... it's a really big silver metal cased fuse on your fusebox closest to the floor... be careful because if the wiper fuse is bad, it may be hot as hell to touch so take care when grabbing it. any auto store will have one. if neither of these fixes work then you need to check the motor wheel that connects to the wiper arm rods under the vents where the washer lines run down from the arms... sometimes the pins that connect the arms to the wheel snap off which make the wipers stop. worst case is the motor itself went bad. hope this helps
