Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.
It sounds like the wiper arms were installed in the incorrect time of wiper operation.
Pop the 14 mm nuts off for the wiper arms so the arms are loose. Then cycle the wipers on and off. Once the cycle is completely off, then set your wiper arm position and tighten. Then recheck it's operation.
Let me know how you make out.
Did you get a whole assembly with wiper linkage and motor?
If you remove the wiper arms, and cycle the wipers. That should cycle the wiper pivots and park them in the proper position for the wiper arms to be re-installed.
Where did you buy this linkage?
The only thing I can think of is that the linkage you got is incorrect and the wiper motor is facing the wrong direction. That is the only way it would swipe the wrong direction.
I would get the linkage from the dealer so you know you are getting the correct linkage. After installing, do not put the wiper arms on. Turn the key ON and cycle the wipers on and off. Once the pivots have stopped, then put the wiper arms on and lock them down. Then recheck the operation.
Do you have any more questions on this?
If the motor is not mounted the same direction, that is why it is swiping the wrong direction
I would remove it and lay it next to the original one and see if it looks the same. You want to look at the motor mounting area.
