Wiper Linkage Guides

Quick and Easy Wiper Linkage Repair

Snowy and rainy seasons really do a good job of giving your wipers a workout. Hence, it is always important to prepare you and your car for these harsh conditions by having a wiper assembly capable of handling the elements for you. One part you can work on is the wiper linkage. Ensure that it is connected to the wiper arms and free from rust. If it shows any signs of damage, change it at once by following this easy repair guide.

Difficulty level: Easy

Tools needed:

  • Socket wrench
  • Socket set
  • Replacement wiper linkage

Step 1: Start the repair by disconnecting the car's battery terminals.

Step 2: Pull the wiper blades away from the windshield to its full upright position. Next, remove it from the car by using a socket wrench on the bolt holding it in place. This bolt is located under a plastic cowl. The cowls may crack when you do the repair under cold weather, so be a little careful. There may also be some push pin retainers for the blades you have to remove as well.

Step 3: Even with the bolt off, the wiper blades may need some force to completely disconnect it from the assembly. Give it a firm, yet guided pull to disconnect them.

Step 4: Pop the hood to access the rest of the wiper assembly. Look for the can-shaped wiper motor located near the firewall. Remove the bolts of the motor from the firewall and pull it out off the wiper linkage.

Step 5: With the motor off, you can now work on the linkage. Use your socket wrench to loosen the bolt holding the linkage in place. There are only a few bolts needed to remove for this. Once all bolts are out, pull the linkage by hand.

Step 6: Grab your new wiper linkage and install it to the assembly. Secure each end to each wiper blade arm with the bolts.

Step 7: Return the other parts of the assembly such as the motor and wiper arms.

Step 8: Reconnect the car's battery to finish the installation. Start your car to test if your wipers work properly. Observe if both move and move as far as its range.

Tips

  1. For exposed linkages, you can put lubrication like a silicone spray to protect the linkage from corrosion and early wear.
  2. Put a fine water mist on the windshield for testing to prevent scratching the glass because of dry wiper blades.

Wiper Linkage Buyer's Guide

Summary

  • Also called the “wiper transmission” or “wiper link assembly,” the wiper linkage is to the windshield wipers what a car’s transmission is to the wheels.
  • The symptoms of a bad or failing wiper linkage include the wiper blades rotating the wrong way at the wrong time, seizing up while moving, and making grinding noises.
  • Wear and tear and cold weather that produces snow and ice can make a wiper linkage more likely to experience issues.
  • CarParts.com offers a wide range of wiper linkages with price tags ranging anywhere between $11 and $394. 

It’s hard to see the road ahead of your vehicle if the windshield is dirty or drenched. That’s why you need your windshield wipers in working condition. Keeping the windshield glass clear and clean makes driving easier and safer.

While the wiper motor generates the power to run the wipers, the wiper linkage delivers that power to where it’s needed. An old or worn-out linkage will hamper the wipers’ efficiency, while a bad one can disable them entirely. Learn about the symptoms of a bad linkage and replace the component as soon as possible.

What is the wiper linkage?

Also called the “wiper transmission” or “wiper link assembly,” the wiper linkage is to the windshield wipers what a car’s transmission is to the wheels. It contains two shafts connected to the wiper arms. Each end of the links features sockets that accept ball joints on the crank arms.

When you move the wiper switch to the “On” position, it signals the control module to close the wiper relay. A 12-volt current moves through the relay’s circuit and powers the motor, rotating a small arm.

The wiper linkage takes the rotational force produced by the motor’s arm and transmits it to the wiper arms. Powered by the energy from the motor, the arms draw the blades back and forth across the windshield, brushing or wiping away any dirt or moisture on the glass.

Warning signs of a bad or failing windshield wiper linkage

Constant or heavy use of the windshield wipers puts a lot of stress on the wiper linkages. They will wear out over time and become less efficient at moving the wiper blades. If a worn-out linkage gets disconnected from the blade arms or the crank arms, it can disable the wiper outright.

If a windshield wiper linkage gets damaged or worn out, it will behave erratically. Running the wipers despite the faulty linkage will hamper its effectiveness at keeping the windshield clean. Doing so will also damage the other parts of the wiper assembly.

When you notice any of the warning signs of a bad or failing wiper linkage, amend it at once. The most common symptoms include:

The wiper blades don’t follow the right rotation pattern

Most vehicles are equipped with a pair of windshield wiper blades. When active, the blades move in sync and follow a pattern of rotations that keep them from hitting each other while they clear away anything on the windshield glass.

A wiper linkage can suffer stripping. If the link rusts or wears out, it can separate from the ball joint of the crank arm. The wiper blades of a stripped linkage will move in the wrong way.

This symptom can also stem from other issues like a loose windshield wiper arm. If the wiper blades rotate the wrong way at the wrong time, inspect the arm for a loose nut. If there’s nothing wrong with the wiper arm, you may have a stripped linkage on your hands instead.

Rough movement of wiper blades

As they travel across the windshield glass, wiper blades move smoothly and evenly. During their progression, they displace the same amount of debris or water along their entire length.

If the wiper blades cannot go through their usual seamless motion and seem to seize up, check the wiper linkage. The linkage may have come loose or gotten worn out.

Other possible reasons for stuttering wiper blade motions include worn-out blades and twisted blade arms. Check the entire wiper assembly to figure out what component failed and caused the problem.

Wiper blades refuse to move when activated

Rather than moving in the wrong way or stuttering, the wiper blades can refuse to budge outright. One of the possible reasons involves the wiper linkage wearing out until it gets stripped, and a disconnected link cannot power the blades.

When the wiper blades stop moving after you switch them on, listen closely. If you hear the sounds of the running wiper motor, the problem lies with the linkage.

Grinding noises

Manufacturers designed wipers to make as little noise as possible while their blades sweep the windshield clean. It can come as a rude shock when grating noises issue from the hitherto quiet-running wipers.

Rather than the wiper blades, the grinding noises likely come from a faulty wiper linkage. The blade arm attaches to the linkage. If the attachment proves too tight, the wiper motor’s gears can grind, which makes the unpleasant noise.

If you hear grinding noises, avoid using the wipers until you replace the worn-out wiper linkage. Otherwise, the wiper motor can burn out, leaving you with two parts that need replacement rather than just one.

What causes your wiper linkage to break or fail?

The more you use an object, the more you wear it out until it breaks down. Wipers and their linkages are no exception. Repeated use of the wipers puts more strain on the wiper linkages.

The climate can also affect the wiper linkage. In cold states that experience winter, snow can build up on the windshield while ice can form on the wipers. Both require more effort to dislodge from the car, and the wipers put their linkages under greater strain.

Cost of a replacement for the wiper linkage

While you can sometimes fix a problem stemming from a weary wiper linkage, it’s safer to replace a bad unit. CarParts.com offers a wide range of wiper linkages with price tags ranging anywhere between $11 and $394.

The replacement parts come in individual units, assemblies, sets of 2, and as part of a wiper linkage kit. The kits add wiper motors and other wiper-related hardware to the offered links.

Replacing your 2004 Honda Accord wiper linkage

While wiper linkages fulfill the same job in every vehicle, their shape and design can differ between makes, models, and even year models. A linkage designed for a 2004 Honda Accord will not fit on a 2006 Ford Focus, and vice versa.

Fortunately, the filter tab in CarParts.com can help you find the replacement part guaranteed to fit your car. Enter your vehicle’s year, make, and model into it.
