Why do front wipers on1999 Ford Windstar stick when window is dry work fine when window is wet ?

wiper blades are miniature squeegees and need water to lubricate the surface so that the dry rubber doesn't stick to the glass and so jump. The problem is made worse if the blades are old and hard.

Problem with our 1998 Ford Contour windshield wiper. It stopped working - not sure why. Checked on the motor...working. Problem could be the switch. Checked the fuses under the steering wheel...none...

If the motor is running then the fuse shouldnt be the problem, iv had problems in the past where the tensioning spring that keeps the blade against the window is too tight and has seized the wiper, turn on the wipers and lift the wipers gently and drop them back into place a few times, a few gentle nudges wont hurt,
Hope this helps,

i`m not sure what you mean by it not working properly i assume that you mean it goes back and forth like the passenger side, but it doesn`t clean the window and you put the blade on the arm correctly then the wiper may be damaged and you will have to replace the wiper blade.check and compare the installation of the driver`s side to the passenger side wiper and correct the installation of the blade

I need to have 'step-by-step' instructions for replacing the driver side windshield wiper arm on my 2000 Ford Explorer. Can you help me with this?

  • Turn your wipers off, using the stalk on the left side of your steering column. Turn your ignition off and remove the key.

  • 2

    Pull the wiper blade up to lift it to the service position. Pull the front part of the blade down to position it at an angle.

  • 3

    Pull back the lock pin on the center part of the wiper blade (where it connects to the wiper arm). This unlocks the blade from the wiper arm.

  • 4

    Grasp the blade on each side and pull it down (away from the extended wiper arm) to release it from the "U" clip.

  • 5

    Repeat the process for the other wiper blade, if desired. Removing the driver's side and passenger's side wiper blade is the same.

  • 6

    Install the new wiper blade. Open the lock pin on the new blade, and then insert it into the wiper arm "U" clip. Close the lock pin and lower the wiper blade to its normal position.

    2002 ford crown vic. driver side wiper not working? passenger side works

    the linkage between the wiper motor and the wiper arms needs to be replaced. the stud on the one side is stripped and that is why it doesn't work as it should. this happens usually when the wipers are left on in the winter with the blades freezing to the windsheild. turn on the car with frozen blades tends to strip out the teeth holding the wiper arms onto the linkage

    How do I change wiper blades on a Ford 500

    This is a fairly simple job.
    #1 Pull the wiper arm away from the vehicle.
    #2 Turn the blade 90 degrees so that the blade and the arm make a 'capital T' shape.
    #3 Pull the blade straight off of the arm.
    #4 Install the new wiper blade so that it forms a ' T ' with the arm.
    #5 Turn the blade back to the normal position in line with the arm.
    #6 Ease the wiper arm and blade back against the windshield.
    #7 You are done. Good luck

    I cant figure out how to change my windshield wiper blades on 2001 ford ranger

    How to Replace Wiper Blades Guide (Typical):
    Potential tools needed to replace wiper blades:
    • Flat blade screwdriver (small)
    • Small nosed pliers
    • Latex or vinyl gloves
    • Safety goggles
    To replace wiper blades theactual action of replacing the blade is no big deal, it's the locationof the blade down below the hood that can make it difficult though.Sometimes it helps to open the hood to gain access to the wiper blades.Other times it is helpful if the wiper blade is somewhere in the motionline of wiper action. The trick is to get the wiper to stop somewherein the wiper arc. Turn the wipers to the on position and allow thewipers to start, and then shut the key off when the wiper has arrivedin a desirable position on the windshield. To replace your wiper bladesplease follow the step by step instruction below. Also, watch the How to replace wiper blades video below to gain additional information. The method in which the wiper blades are attached will vary slightly.
    • Step 1: With the hood closed, turn the wiperson, when the wipers are in the middle of their arc turn the key to theoff position. (Note: if this can't be done because of wiper conditionand you want to avoid scratching the windshield please open your hoodto gain access)
    • Step 2: Locate the mounting clips at the top pivot on the wiper blade
    • Step 3: Release the clip and remove the wiper arm
    • Step 4: Match the size of the old blade against the new blade to ensure proper fit and operation
    • Step 5: Reinstall the new wiper blade and recheck wiper operation

    Common Problems:
    • Make sure the wiper blades are the same size as the original blades.
    • When replacing wiper blades not getting the blade onthe mounting pin completely allowing the wiper arm to become dislodgedand possibly causing damage to the windshield.
    • Using wiper blades after the blade has failed permanently damaging the windshield by craving scratches in the wiper arc.
    • Wiper blade can create a chattering noise when theblade is not properly balanced allowing the blade to "flop" back andforth as the wiper direction changes.

    I hope help you with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.
