Not what comes to mind when you think of auto repair, windshield wiper repair can quickly become an issue for a professional. Maintenance on your windshield wipers may not seem important until it is pouring down rain and your wipers are barely moving the water out of the way.
Replacing Your Windshield Wipers: The Basics
When you first notice your windshield wipers streaking, leaving moisture behind, or squeaking, the wiper blades may be past their prime and need to be replaced. Simple enough, any auto owner can do it. However, it is essential to examine the arm of the windshield wiper for bends or damage. Even if you replace the blades, the wipers will not connect to the windshield. You should seek a professional to replace the windshield wipers. This task is not as simple as replacing the blades.
Mechanical Issues: Motor and Transmission
If you turn your windshield wipers on and they are not moving or moving incorrectly, there may be a mechanical issue. Typically, windshield wipers are powered by one or two motors but will be affected by worn-out or old motors or transmission. Mechanical dysfunction like this will make your windshield wipers not work until these components are replaced. Check with your auto repair professional to see if these pieces function correctly, especially if you have replaced your motor.
Only One isn’t Working?
If only one of your windshield wipers is broken, there is probably a broken linkage. Both windshield wipers can run off one motor when there is a linkage or wiring between them. If one wiper is not working, it is very likely this linkage is broken and needs an auto repair specialist to fix it.
