Auto maintanence On my 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis, the driver side wiper does not always completely clean the windshield during heavy rains. either the "up" stoke or the "down" stroke may leave rain on the windshield. I have replaced the wiper blade & even exchanged the wiper blades from passenger-to-driver side with the same result. Is the wiper arm itself weak on the driver's side? How do you replace that wiper arm? Are there diagrams I can access on-line? Thanks for your help! Pianotech

I have a 2003 Hyundai Elantra. The drivers side windshield wiper scrapes and bounces across the windshield and makes a loud scraping noise unless there is a lot of water on the windshield or I have the wipers working at top speed. I have replaced the blade 3 times and have cleaned the windshield several times as well as the blade but the problem won't go away. Any ideas?

I have a 1993 pontiac firebird and when every i click forward or turn on the windshield wipers they do a full swipe and then click down and then pop back up half way up the windshield and get stuck. if i put the wiper blades on the timed delay wipe they do the same thing. they wipe the shield and then pop back up and stick in the middle of the windshield. the only way for me to reset them is to push the wipers back into the correct off position. and in addition some times the wipers functio

I have a 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan. Wipers chatter very badly on every upstroke. I have changed blades, arms, and windshield. I have tried several brands of blades and several brands of washer fluids, including Rainex. The problem continues unchanged. Oddly, the wipers do not chatter on a dry windshield. Any ideas?

2007 ford focus driverside windshied wiper, won't clear rain on the up stroke but will on the down stroke. And ya the windshield is been cleaned and even replaced the O.E wiper with the ancoflex wiper and still having the same problem cold or warm? I think the problem is with the leight of the blade itself, it calls for two diffrent size blades on that car.!? any ideas?? Also its just about 3inches of the center of the blade area.
The wrong sized blade would likely cause the outer end to project beyond the glass area. The problem is that the blade doesn't rock back and forth on the arm as it sweeps the area. Try twisting the arm itself to allow equal flop to each side when cha ... 1996 Ford Contour
Windshield wipers Wipers were stuck to the windshield with ice when I started the vehicle. Something popped and the wiperes don't work. I hear the motors running. I can grab one wiper blade and both move. I believe it must be the linkage but I'm afraid its to deep to get to. Its a FORD so probably have to remove the dash. Tell me I'm wrong and its a simple fix, Please. Chuck
Don't have to remove the dash- remove the plastic black cowl just under the wipers. The "pop" you heard is probably the clasp coming off the ball nut connected to the wiper motor. check the mounting plate for damage (usually they're good or need a ... 2000 Ford Expedition

I have a 1991 Mazda 626. The driver side windshield wiper arm (not blade) is raised about an inch from the windshield. I believe the spring is failing. I have tried using WD40 on the hinge to loosen things up but this does not solve the problem. Is there a way to switch the windshield wiper arm from the passenger side to the driver side?
Yes undo the nut on the end where the drive comes out of the bodywork of the vehicle ,also try some engine oil on the hinge ,wd40 is fish oil and its great for my arthritic joints but not a lot of use on ,motor vehicles ... Mazda 626

I have a 2010 Hyundai Sonata. The passenger side windshield wiper does not always make contact with the windshield. On the first wipe it appears to make complete contact, but in inclement weather, by the time I get to work, it's not clearing the windshield. I just put new blades on.

You are on the right track. If you have removed that little cap, and unbolted the nut what you do is pull and wiggle. There is a special tool, but if you are persistent you can do it without the tool. A little WD-40 never hurts either. ... 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab
