The Importance of Reliable Windshield Wipers?

No vehicle can ever be driven without a good pair of windshield wipers. Whether the transportation is a jet airliner, train, bus, truck, or simple car, the windshield wipers need to be available for use in case of inclement weather. No one is ever sure when the need to use them will occur. A sudden thunderstorm could bring a downpour of rain which can block a driver's view even when the wipers are turned on up to high. Even in a snow shower, these wipers really make a difference between seeing and not seeing.Airliners need the wipers while on the ground and even when taking off and making the approach for the landing. Once the airline is below the clouds, it will need vision just like any other vehicle does. A public transit bus is not permitted to be used if the windshield wipers are out of order. It's just common sense; no one can drive without being able to see what's in front of the vehicle.Good windshield wipers don't need to cost a lot of money. Low cost wipers can offer great performance. Sometimes only the rubber part needs to be changed. This is necessary when the wipers are dragging or streaking along the windshield while in use. The rubber can also deteriorate if it is heavily used. A good rule of thumb is to have the windshield wipers changed twice a year, in the spring and in the autumn. When purchasing the new wipers, the owner's manual must be consulted to get the proper fit and style. This way the wipers will always be reliable when needed the most.A new design of wipers that have been tested are the six beam-blade models. These beam blades have no external frames and can put more even pressure on the newer curved windshields, thus the performance of the wiping will be much better. These new blades will cost more but may work better on the much newer windshields.

Why would one windshield wiper arm work and the other one doesn't move on a 97 Nissan altima?

Linkage has become disconnected or broken wiper transmission? There is a plastic grill that covers the wiper arms, open the hood and remove the windshield wipers first (just unscrew the bolts), remove the black grill. You will see the two linkage arms that attach to the motor. One might have fallen off it's linkage. You can order a new linkage arm online ($15) and attach it yourself. Make sure you put a lot of pressure when you attach the new one, it's hard.


Would a burned out fuse cause the windshield wipers to go out on a 1998 Stratus and if so how do you change the fuse?

Yes. There are two places to check. The first is the wiper relay it should located under the hood in the relay box. The relay box is located right next to the air cleaner. Remove and replace. The other is the fuse box. When you open the drivers door look at the end of the dash there is a little panel you need to remove in order to access the fuse panel. Look on the diagram printed on the door it should tell you which fuse is connected to the wipers. Remove fuse (either with a fuse puller or a set of needle nose pliers) if the little wire insde is broken replace with a new fuse of same size.

2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue and after an ice storm your windshield wipers come to rest in the service position. pointed straignt up when you shut them off How can you get them to rest in their normal pos?

Same thing happened to me on 1998 intrigue. Also in snowy and freezing conditions. The link here attributed the problem to water freezing in the Wiper moter assembly Maybe it will start working when it thaws out? [hr] Wrong. Your windshield wiper motor is mounted to a bracket that has a little metal tab on it that the crank arm assembly has to hit in order to park the wipers, in a lot of cases this park tab in either bent or broken, and if bent can be adjusted. This happens if the wipers encounter too much stress, such as trying to wipe when they are frozen in ice. The tab can be easily bent back, if you can get to the wiper motor.

95 ford explorer sport Windshield washer spray nozzel replacement?

Remove the wiper arms: There is a tab on the bottom of the round piece that attaches the arm to the shaft, pull the tab out and remove the wiper arm Remove the cowling: The cowling @ the base of the windshield is easily removed by gently prying around the perimeter. Remove the hoses: Gently work the hoses loose form the nozzle base Remove the spray nozzles: The nozzles are attached to the underside of the cowling by simple tabs Nozzle replacement: Either go to a junk yard and get replacement nozzles off of another explorer or buy generic replacements @ an auto parts store. The generic replacements work OK but you'll have to drill a new hole in the cowling in order to get the proper angle to make the generics squirt high enough on the windshield. Put the whole thing back together in reverse order.

How do you remove the head unit of a 2000 Galant?

I had a '99 and my cousin has an '03 Galant.I first removed the trim around the radio and the a/c controls which pops right off.Second, I removed the four screws that hold the a/c controls, which gives you enough clearance to be able to push the a/c controls low enough to remove the radio.Next all you have to do is raise the radio a little and pull it out from the front brackets holding it in place.That should be it and I had to use the side metal brackets attached to the factory radio in order to attach the new radio.


How do you replace windshield wiper mounts?

Modern windshields are held in place by weatherstripping and high strength glue. The first step is to cut away the old weatherstripping in order to free the windshield. Once the windshield is free, thoroughly clean all the old residue off. An auto parts store or dealership will have the replacement material you need to re-install the windshield.

Ford windstar blower works but not from front vents?

OK here we go. If the selector switch will not work i know the problem. if all you feel is the air blowing from the vents by the windshield it is vacuum related. this is what i found on my 2003 Ford Windstar. first pop your hood and open it up. Next remove the windshield wipers and place in a safe place, note the locating, or angle of wiper arms before you remove them. there are two deck covers which i call them on the bottom of the windshield that have to be removed or moved. using a Phillips head screw driver, remove the little black screws and black plastic guard under the windshield. under it will be a metal deck plate which will also need to be moved in order to see the vacuum lines behind the cabin air filter on the passenger side. I found the vacuum line that connects to the cabin air filter housing was disconnected. simply plug it back into its little nipple and your selector switch will work about 10 seconds after you start your vehicle. If this doesn't fix your problem there might be another vacuum line disconnected of you have other problems i didn't have. a good place to start is under the dash inside the vehicle. sometimes these lines can get damaged and or broken causing problems. I hope this helps a lot of people out there.
