Customer Question

I have a 2011 Toyota Rav4 and I installed a front windshield wiper motor on it. The wiper arms will not work properly. They don't rest in the right position. They are out of sync.

Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

If when you removed the old wiper motor the match marks were not lined up this can cause this issue here.Below is the match mark needing lined up with the motor installed with wipers off and key off.

If this is lined up already or was lined up let me know so we can continue.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation.
