Rear wiper rotates around

the wiper arm is held against the glass by a spring-corrosion in the arm doesn't allow the spring to pull it against the glass-in order to position it properly take the arm off,run the wiper while watching it-you need 2 people for this job-noting where it starts from and where it ends at. put the wiper where it looks close to where it should be and try it you may have to reposition it a few times. as far as the wiper arm being corroded-I would replace it. the reason its going down right now is because its in the wrong position from the carwash-these things can be nasty to get off-you can get a tool at the auto parts stores-ie autozone ,advanced auto or pepboys-cheers Denny

I have a 1983 Chrysler new yorker I want to know to remove the windshield wiper arm?

if you want to remove the wiper arm, just move your wiper arms in standing position and remove the wiper nut cover. there you can now see the nut that is holding your wiper arm.

if you want to remove the whole wiper assembly, just remove the wiper assembly cover, from there you can already see the nuts and bolts to be removed.

How do I replace wiper blades

First, pull on the wiper arm until it raises and locks into the service position. The wiper arm will stand by itself once you raise it past a certain point.
Then find the clip on the underside of the wiper arm (rotate the blade slightly to get to it.
Press the clip in while simultaneously pulling the old wiper blade off the wiper arm. You can then discard the old blade.
Align the new wiper blade with the wiper arm track. Slide it along the track until you hear it click.
Repeat this process with the other wiper blade to complete the replacement of wiper blades on your Highlander.
Return the wiper arms to their normal position against the windshield. Done!

Hi - My 03 Ion wipers have just started to cause me problems. Went through an automatic car wash a few weeks ago and the driver's side wiper arm flipped up and i think got bent/broke somewhere inside...

I would call around to local junkyards and see if any have an 03 Ion. If so go buy the drivers wiper arm from them. At the base of the arm is a socket with serrations or splines in it. If these are rounded off, do not buy the arm, just keep looking. Once you have a good one, make sure your wiper switch is in OFF position. Have someone with some basic tools pull off the plastic cap over the base of your wiper arm if it is still there. Generally these caps are gone after about 2 years. Then remove the nut which holds the arm onto the little stub. Pull the wiper arm off, may take a little gentle rocking but do not pry against glass. When it is off, put your replacement arm on so that it sits in the right rest position, snug the nut down, and put the cap back on. If you know what loctite is that nut would be a good place for it, but not necessary. Might be a good time to replace both wiper blades. Alternatively you can pull off the cap and snug the nut down, but if the serrations are smoothed over this will be useless.

Broken rear window wiper

Should be a cap over nut that holds wiper arm on pivot. My guess is the car wash stripped the spline, but you may be able to save it. Flip cap up at pivot, usually from bottom of arm, to expose nut underneath it. Undo the nut, and remove the arm. Blow out the shavings etc in there, then re-install it in proper position and tighten nut good & snug, being careful not to go too far as it's pretty soft metal, and will snap if you reef it too tight. Now try it, with a little water on window first.

I have a 1997 Grand Prix GTP and my windshield wipers won't work

The wiper arms are a "friction fit" on the wiper linkage studs.
Remove the cap from the end of each wiper arm, remove the retaining nut, carefully pry the wiper arm off of the stud. Clean out the inside of the arm hole and also clean up the stud. Position the arm back in to proper place on the wiper arm "park" stands and the linkage stud. Put the nut back on the stud and tighten down.
This should solve your problem.

Snow caused wipers

You'll have to have arm removed and repositioned. If there is a little cap at end where it mounts, snap it up , remove nut, and wiggle arm upward, until off, put wipers in park, set arm back on in proper position & tighten nut. If no nut, there should be a clip on side that you pry out and pull arm off same way. If not successful, a local garage or bodyshop should do it for you for minimal or no charge. Hopefully splines inside arm aren't stripped off. Clean all good before re-install.
