The cowl needs to be removed. There are 6 or 7 screws under the hood and 3 or 4 in the top of the cowl. You must first remov the wiper arms by pulling them away from the windshield and pulling the little tab at the base of the arm out from the gear. Then you can remove the cowl. You have to open and close the hood a couple of times to get it off. When you go to take the clip off of the end of the motor shaft before you pull the motor, be very careful, as the clip will sometimes sprout legs and jump into a particularly not easy place to retrieve it from. After that, install the new motor and enjoy.

Yes, there is a windshield wiper relay on a 1992 Chevy Lumina. The windshield wiper relay is located in the underhood fuse panel.

The 1992 Saturn wiper motor is located on the firewall in the engine compartment. The wiper motor will be in the center of the firewall.

Remove wiper arms and bladers. Next remove rubber sealing grommets from the wiper spindles. Reomove screws from scuttle panel, then remove scuttle panel, you will now have access to the wiper motor.

it is only the drivers side wiper that is having the problem it works randomly but does not go all the way across the windshiled when it does work. The passenger side windshield wiper works fine.

I am going with the assumption that question is "how do you change the wiper blade (blade and frame)", not "how do you change the rubber blade (wiper refill)", and not "how do you change the wiper arm". Wiper Blade = The wiper frame that attaches to the wiper arm including the rubber blade. 1. Step 1 is to be sure you get the right replacement wiper blades. The 1992 Ford F-Series Pickup (including the F-350) takes 18" wiper blades on both sides front.

It's possible that the wiper switch is bad, but most likely it's the wiper motor itself. Wiper motors have an internal switch that only turns off when both the manual switch is turned off AND the wiper blade is in the park position. If the wiper motor cannot sense that it has hit the park position, it will run continuously.

Just open up the enclosure under the hood near the firewall that has an electrical wire harness and is right below the windshield wiper arm. Remove the old nylon bushing and push in the new one. then reassemble.

I changed mine (1992) by removing the vented piece that runs between the windshield and the hood. Pop the hood and you will find screws to remove this as well as a a few screws from the top in between the grill type vents near the wiper blades. ( Remove the wiper arms and unscrew th antennae also) Lift this pc. out and you will gain access to the nuts that secure the motor to the firewall. Remove the motor harness, then disconnect the motor from the wiper connector. Try new motor by connecting to the harness and turning it on from the cab BEFORE you take anything apart. This will verify taht the motor is the problem. Good luck!

The wiper motor on a 1992 Chrysler LeBaron won't work if the motor has seized up or the fuse has blown. The switch inside the cabin or the wiring can also come loose and cause this problem.

Most likely it's the motor assembly. There is an internal switch that keeps the motor running until the wiper blades are in the "park" position. If the internal switch fails, the wiper will continue to run or will turn off wherever the blades are when you turn off the wipers. Either can happen when the wiper internal switch fails.

On the drivers side engine firewall.

On my 1992 Geo Metro hatchback, the windshield wiper switch is on the right hand side of the steering column, opposite the turn signal switch. Please be advised that this switch handle breaks off very easily and you have to buy the whole combo switch (turn signal, flasher switch and wiper switch).

If it is anything like a 91 Ford Tempo, then the wiper motor is on the passenger side near the vent duct for the air conditioning/heating system under the hood. There should be a plastic cover over the length of the firewall that covers the vent duct, washer fluid and the wiper motor.
