My kid's Sami has had the passenger side wiper start flopping around. What is the "usual" problem with wipers, and what does it take to fix it?
Please don't tell me to do a search, I've already done that, and didn't think I got all of the info I needed.
Thanks for any help.
The windshield fram is probaly rotted out. Mine doesnt even work anymore its so rotted. the frames are super easy to change if you can find one or i got mine jerry rigged to last 6 months by welding a large washer around the wiper . What happens is the torque of the motor fkexes the rusty frame and lets it flop, binds it up or breaks it all together
Thanks for the reply but.........believe it or not, neither of my Sami's have hardly any rust at all. So I don't think that's it. In my search, somebody said something about a bushing on the end of the arm. Do you have to remove the dash to get to it? Since I've never pulled the dash on either one of my Sami's, I'm a little a loss here.
If it's a convertable, simply undo the windshield braces on the windshield frame on the outside (where hinges are on a Jeep), the targa bar supports, and the dash supports located on both sides of the dash. It's real easy.
If it's a tintop, you'll have to pull out the dash.
First off if you mean it's flopping around by not following the same timing as the other one, it might just be the nut under the cover at the pivot point of the arm. OR it could be the type that has a small bolt to lock onto the shaft. If it's this type flip it up and you'll see the small bolt that has to be tightened.
If the frame is solid this is more than likely the problem..
Thanks all. DannyL, his description of what was going on was more like what you said. The passenger side wiper wasn't in sequence with the driver's side. I would rather not have to pull the windshield frame if I don't have to.
