How do you replace a stripped bolt on one of your windshield wipers on your 1995 Subaru Legacy wagon?

If a bolt is stripped on the windshield wiper on a 1995 Subaru Legacy Wagon, there are two options. A person can go to a salvage yard and purchase new wipers for the vehicle, or they can have the bolt hole tapped for a larger bolt.

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.


Wiper motor 93 acclaim?

I had a problem with my 94 Acclaim wipers on one side. The motor itself was good, but the locking nut that holds the wiper to the motor was stripped out. Some lock-tite held the nut to the stripped bolt, problem solved! Hope that helps!

How do you repair Nissan Sentra wiper arm?

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.

SLEDGE HAMMER. That's how I did it. Then I found the bolt. You must first remove the plastic insert. The pivot bolt is toward the rear of the beast.
