If you are like the rest of us and have broken plastic mounts, see "How you do you repair the windshield wiper assembly in a 2003 Saturn Ion?"

Lift wiper assembly off of windshield into "up" position. Rotate 90 degrees. Pull wiper blade assembly gently toward the windshield. It slips right off. Note: Put protective barrier like cardboard or a towel over windshield in case blade assembly snaps back toward windshield to avoid cracking the windshield.

Its part of the windshield wiper motor assembly. It unsnaps from the assembly for EASY replacement!

NOTE: To prevent glass and/or paint damage, do not pry windshield wiper pivot arm from windshield wiper mounting arm and pivot shaft with metal or sharp tool. 1. Turn ignition switch to the ACC position. Turn turn signal and windshield wiper switch ON. Allow windshield wiper motor to move the windshield wiper mounting arm and pivot shafts three or four cycles, then turn off the turn signal and windshield wiper switch. This will place the windshield wiper mounting arm and pivot shafts in the park position. Turn ignition switch to the OFF position. 2. Remove the windshield wiper pivot arm and windshield wiper blade by first applying downward pressure on the windshield wiper pivot arm head, while holding the windshield wiper pivot arm. Then lift the windshield wiper pivot arm to the highest position and, using finger pressure only, grasp slide latch tab and slide latch out from under the windshield wiper pivot arm head. Remove windshield wiper pivot arm and windshield wiper blade assembly. 3. To remove the windshield wiper blade, insert a screwdriver into the slot provided at top of the windshield wiper blade frame, push down on spring lock and pull the windshield wiper blade from the windshield wiper mounting arm and pivot shaft . 4. Install the windshield wiper blade onto the new replacement windshield wiper pivot arm. See sources and related links below for replacement wiper blade information.

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.

Check for disconnected or broken linkage or a bad wiper transmission

How do I replace the windshield wiper switch?

User Avatar

The linkage bushings are worn/missing/broken or the wiper arms are not timed properly to the wiper transmissions.

User Avatar

More than likely the problem is the transmission that needs to be replaced

Mary Anderson patented the windshield wiper in 1905

The wipers are linked together by a bar that attaches to the wiper motor. They attach with a small ball joint assembly. if you remove the black vent intakes at the base of your windshield you will see the assembly. Should be a matter of just reattaching the connector.

If its like a 96 you remove the windshield wiper motor and assembly

User Avatar

Going to have to diagnose it first to determine what the problem is, post the results then we can determine how you should repair it.

If windshield wipers are stuck in position and won't move, I would say that the windshield wiper motor needs replacing. This happened to me last year.
