How do you adjust the wiper travel on a 1997 Subaru Legacy GT Wagon?

Wiper travel is non-adjustable on Subarus-- but wiper position is indeed adjustable. Flip up the cover (or pry out the rubber insert) to gain access to the wiper arm bolt. This holds the wiper arm to the pivot shaft. The wiper arm and the pivot shaft have tiny grooves in them-- once in the groove and the bolt tightened, the arm is locked to the shaft. Recheck bolt tightness after a day or so of wiper operation in case it works loose-- if still tight, it will stay that way for years unless heavy snow mashes the arm down. Then you have to loosen the bolt, reposition the wiper arm, and tighten the bolt again.

Where is the pivot bolt on a 1992 Geo Prizm?

A pivot bolt holds a component in place but allows it to rotate about an axis. There is also a locking bolt which keeps the component from rotating. You need to loosen the locking bolt to allow movement. In order to replace the part you remove both the pivot and locking bolts. Common places for a pivot bolt are the alternator and the power steering pump.

Depends on what's wrong with it. If it is the base of the arm stripped out where it attaches to the shaft you replace it, or you can take it off and put some JB Weld or epoxy glue on it and bolt the arm back one. This may make it permanent, but it's a cheap fix.

How do you replace the alternator on a 1995 Toyota Celica ST?

AnswerThere are three bolts involved. The top bolt located closest to the engine is your Pivot bolt. Loosen that bolt so the alternator will pivot downward when you unlock it. Speaking of unlocking, there is another bolt located on the bottom of the alternator, loosen and remove this bolt. Finally, on the front of the alternator there is a tension adjustment bolt. Loosen that until the belt clears the pulley so that you can remove it. You don't have to remove the tension bolt, just loosen it. Once the belt is removed make sure to disconnect any wire/plugs, etc from the alternator, remove the pivot bolt and viola! Installation is the reversal.

Looking into the engine compartment from the passenger side you you will see two large bolts and a smaller bolt on the alternator. The large upper bolt is the pivot bolt, the lower bolt is the locking bolt. The third bolt is used to adjust belt tension. 1. Loosen the alternator locking bolt. You may need a breaker bar to free the bolt. 2. Loosen the pivot bolt. 3. Turn the tension bolt counter clockwise to loosen tension, clockwise to increase tension. 4. Tighten the pivot bolt and locking bolt.
