I have a 2009 Murano and the front driver wiper motor

Customer Question

I have a 2009 Murano and the front driver wiper motor doesn't work. Is it relatively easy to replace. If so, how? Thx
JA: Have you checked the fuses? Do you know if there is power to the wiper motor?
Customer: Hmmm. How do I check that.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Nothing yet. I know there's a windshield cover held by grommets that would need to be removed. Oh boy your saying to yourself!!
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Check for voltage across leads,, check to see for any rotation when I turn the wipers on...

The passenger wiper works. Does that help in the diagnosis?

Are you still there?
Expert:  Kevin Bourcier replied 3 months ago.

yes . there is what is called a wiper transmission that has failed and will need to be replaced . here are some illustrations to show you what is involved . you will need to purchase a wiper transmission / linkage assemply as the are not normally serviced with any replacable parts . Check with both your local parts store and the dealer about price and availability .

When I am about to remove the wiper arms (I believe I need to remove both) to remove the cowl top cover, I removed a hex bolt from each. Are the arms supposed to slide off easily?
Expert:  Kevin Bourcier replied 3 months ago.

they are a taper , pressure fit . you may want to tighten both nuts back on and see if your driver side wiper will work .

Expert:  Kevin Bourcier replied 3 months ago.

it is not common for the wiper connection to loosen off to the point where the wiper does not move but if they seemed loose . before going further tighten them back up and try your wipers

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
They were on pretty tight. The driver wiper is just swivelling freely.
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I believe I know why the driver wiper failed. The passenger one has a rubber boot at the shaft to keep dirt out and the driver is not there and there's a bunch of dirt in there must have caused something to seize.
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I need a puller?
Expert:  Kevin Bourcier replied 3 months ago.

yes there is a puller to remove the . Sometimes i just put a thick rag on the cowl and use a large pry bar to POP them off

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
That was going to be my next move. I just needed some confirmation.
Expert:  Kevin Bourcier replied 3 months ago.

spraying some WD-40 or similar lube also will help

Expert:  Kevin Bourcier replied 3 months ago.
