How do you repair a rear windshield wiper that moves intermittently and slowly but only when lifted up a bit on a 2001 Toyota Celica?

probably by fixing the wire supplying the power to the whiper itself it could be broken and only making a connection when lifting the hatch

Most hatches on cars, when the hatch is raised you can see where the wires ae loomed or ran thru from the top inside of the hatch thru the top sill, thru a rubber grommet. Most times even tho the wires are sleeved in a protective rubber shroud, they still pinch and rub. Try taking a closer look at the shrouded area, you may have to split open the shroud to do a visual inspection. If the wires all look ok, you can use heat shrink overlap to reseal them or electrical tape.

There's a number of places in Denver offering deals on a lifted Toyota. The main difference in price will come down to the year. Stevinson Toyota East currently has the best deals, in general, for Denver. Mainly because of the fact that they have frequent sales and deals to lower the prices.

Check out for local ads. Most used car dealerships will not take in lifted cars due to warranty and safety concerns. Another place to look is the local newspaper ads.
