I had this problem about 18 months ago. I took it to a garage and was advised that the entire wiper motor and linkage arms needed to be replaced quoting approx. £175.00. Instead I took it home, took it all apart and found a washer that was slightly too small to fit on the end of the ball, hit it hard with a hammer thus jamming it on. It hasn't come off once since. Total cost approx. £0.30 and 30 minutes of my own time...

Only one windshield wiper works the wiper arm is connected to the motor, but the drivers side wiper doesnt move at the same time, eventually causing the wipers to hit each other. They dont wipe in Sync. The spline threads on the wiper base are not stripped and neither is that splined post.


The splined fitting is pressed into the linkage. The fit became loose so that side will not operate correctly no longer. You will need to remove replace the complete linkage ... 1995 Ford Aspire

I have a wiper linkage problem on a volvo 960. The passenger side wiper does not work. The linkage cable broke but the AA guy fashioned another one. There is a small plastic wheel round which this cable is supposed to go. However after a few sweeps of the wipers the cable comes off the wheel and the passenger side wiper stops working again. Any ideas on how I can keep the cable from slipping off? Or a repair write up online that I can try? Thanks.

I've replaced the wiper motor on a 2000 Pontiac Trans Am, but I can't figure out the proper position for the assembly which mounts to the shaft of the wiper motor. There is an oblong "cam" shaped plate that is fixed in place by the splines on the wiper motor shaft. I think I have this oriented incorrectly - when I run the motor, there is a notch on this cam that catches on a sliding pin. This keeps the wipers from operating. I assume I have this oriented wrong. Can someone help me with orie

Rumbling noise when accelerating.. coming from under driver side... I feel it in the pedal.. sound comes off the start and then it goes away once I go faster. I have changed tie rods, rack and pinion, wheel bearings, rotors, breaks, shocks are new. What could it be? Is driving me crazy. Could it be a bushing? Ball joint? Control arms? I don't want to keep spending money and still have the problem.
