1. Remove the wipers....Pull the wiper off of the window and the slide the tab near where the wiper is attached outward - away from the wiper. Lift the wiper off. 2, Remove… the 5 small screws on the plastic piece right under the windshield, then with the hood open, remove the three larger screws that hold the piece in place. 3. Remove the plastic under the other piece by prying gently so that the tabs that hold it in place 'release'. Now you can see and get to the wiper mechanism(s). What I found to be the easiest is to do most of the assembly with all the parts OUTSIDE of the car and then slide the completed assembly back in and pop on the link to the motor (which is not too easy! 4. Remove all the wiper parts by removing the three screws that hold each wiper 'pivot' point in place. You can remove the arm that goes from the wiper motor crank up to the driver's side wiper by prying it away from the wiper motor crank. Once you have everything out you should be able to better see how the bushings fit together and pry the ones apart and remove them. To reassemble - I found it easiest to put the new bushing in the metal 'arm' first and then popping it onto the shaft by hitting it (not too hard) with a hammer. Pay attention to how the different arms are oriented (make a drawing?) so you do not do what I did....assembly it all only to find that I had the linkage to the wiper motor turned the wrong way! Once you get the mechanism back in it is simple to reassemble everything in the reverse order that you took it apart. Good luck!
I have the same problem and the engineers at ford expect you to replace the entire wiper assembly if the cap over the linkage ball breaks... every other maker has this as a re…placeable part.. whats up??? Pick up replacement cup-and-ball linkage bushings from local O'Rielly Auto Parts or online for less than $10. Made by Dorman part number 49451, brand number YL3Z 17508-AB. Replacement instructions described for 2000 Expedition which uses same part here: http://voices.yahoo.com/replacing-wiper-arm-bushings-2000-ford-5389617.html

Rockauto.com has them and so does O'Reilly's auto parts. A Chrysler dealer should be able to get them.
I have the same problem and came here looking for answers, lol. One thing I did do for a temporary fix was to reattach the arm into the worn bushing and then use cable ties ar…ound the arms to hold it. That way, my wipers will still work until I can get a permanent repair. Make sure you leave a bit of slack in the ties so there's room to move and they don't break. And yes, I use several at a time just so there's some for backup when one breaks. They will eventually break, but it may start making noise, a lot of clunking around, as a warning that the ties are about to give.
local advance autoparts store they sell a kit comes with 3 sets i think you have to match up the old ones.
The dash pad has to come off. Once you have removed that, there are two plastic covers over access openings inside the windshield frame. When you remove those covers, you'll s…ee the linkage is held together with radial retaining rings, which you can pull off with pliers. Then remove the parts at the pivots on the outside of the frame. You can then remove the motor with one part of the linkage. The rest of the linkage gets removed through the access openings. It can be a struggle.. Be aware if you think you have a linkage problem, it might actually be a problem with the windshield frame. If possible, make sure there isn't too much flexing of the windshield frame with the wipers running. If they are iffy, you might be able to keep them running for this test by taking off 1 or both blades. I replaced the linkage on mine thinking it was worn out causing it to bind, then found out it was binding because the frame was flexing.
first thing you do is make sure it is not just a fuse.Lift hood and take of rubber weather strip it stops water from getting in to your engine when hood is closed.step 2 take …of clips that hold cowl cover in place.cowl cover is where the wiper arms come out from .Then you take out the screws from the cowl cover .at the bottom of each wiper arm there is a small plastic cover covering a bolt remove the bolt and lightly tap on the tapered arm that the bolt came off to release the arm.now you can remove the cowl covers drivers side first.once you have done this it is just three more bolts unplug the motor and remove the whole wiper linkage .replace is same in reverse
why is it after I hooked up the linkage for my wipers the wipers stay in the upright position after I turn them off.\n
Remove the old wiper and replace with a new one
The Volkswagen Golf MK IV was manufactured from 1997-2006. Only one rear wiper is listed throughout the years, a fairly standard 13". A 12" will work too. Note however, when b…uying wipers be sure to always lookup your vehicle make, model and year in the application guide book at the store
It is hard to replace it yourself, and without professional help you would probably put it on wrong, I would suggest seeing a pro. Do you just want to replace the wipers?
just release the screws attached to the wind screen and just replace it simple
You don't really, you would replace the entire linkage. Best place to get it from and be correct the first time would be your dealer.
In Chevy Impala
\n. they make you buy the entire linkage assembly. No one makes a bushing kit for it. You can break out the existing remaining plastic bushing and replace with a rubber gromm…et from ACE Hardware used for electrical wires and it works perfect. The grommet will be about the size of a nickel Lube with lithium grease and you will be set email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need any more information
If one wants to replace a wiper linkage there are a few steps involved. Pull the wiper arm away from the windshield until the arm locks in vertical position. Unbolt the nut …that holds the wiper arm to the linkage and pull the wiper arm off the linkage. Open the hood and unbolt the wiper motor and slide the motor off of the linkage. One then will remove the wiper linkage and install a new one.
