rear wiper

hey all, i was wondering how i would go about tightening my rear wiper, it has power but the wiper does not move, its like the wiper is not tight on the actual moving post to make it wipe. i know how to take off the panel, i just dont know how to tighten it.

thanks in advance.

There's just a little cap at the base of the wiper arm that can be popped open with a flathead screwdriver. Then just tighten the nut underneath. Not sure if that's your problem, though, since the arm has a rubber piece around the bolt to prevent slipping. You could use the wiper without a nut holding it on.

like stated above there will be a little door that pops off. once thats off tighten the nut.

or you can spend 99 cents on a rag and wipe it off yourself smile

mine didn't come with a rear wiper, but i'm kinda glad it didn't.. looks wise if i ever wanna go wingless w/ a clean kit. thumbsup i never had a need for the rear wiper even when it's pouring. the rear defroster works well enough i guess. thumbsup
