HOWTO: Fix wiper resting point issues

Thank you so much sk93.
It took me closer to 90 minutes because I am not practiced or particularly gifted under the bonnet - and getting the wiper blades off was very time consuming, perseverance was the key! However, even I was able to achieve the desired effect using your brilliant guide. Thanks again :D

HOWTO: Fix wiper resting point issues

Nice post. I will need to do this to my 2003. One question. To remove the wiper arms, any reason to not use a battery terminal puller like I do on my other cars?

I don’t see why not, as long as it pulls the wiper up from its spline it should do the job :thumbsup:

HOWTO: Fix wiper resting point issues

Just did the repair. No at all hard. Took me about 1 1/2 hours because I am slow.

Some observations:

-My cowl cover did not have any of the 4 front pins in place. I just put it back. We will see.
-The windshield wipers came right off. Not at all like the ones on my bus that always require a puller.
-The retaining clip for the electrical connector broke off. (Car has 120,000 miles). Put some dilectric grease on it and pushed it back together. Hopefully it will hold.
-The drain under the moter was filled with nasty gunk. Vacuumed it out and clead the rubber flappy thingy.

Thanks for a great DIY Article!
