Ford wiper won't wipe

Asked by Nov 28, 2015 at 02:10 PM about the 1996 Ford Crown Victoria 4 Dr LX Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The driver's side wiper on my Mercury Grand Marquis moves across the
windshield but won't wipe water off the window unless the car is at a dead
stop. This is ONLY the driver's side, passenger side works fine.
Had the EXACT same problem with my 94 Crown Victoria. Bending the wiper
arm does not help. New blades make no difference. Seems like air pushes the
wiper OFF the window just enough that it doesn't work but only on the left side.

I have not tried a new wiper arm but how can that cause this problem? Seems like the wiper arm is just a stick. I'll give it a shot though. THANK YOU for your amazingly fast reply!

Wiper arms have a spring in them that is way you can lift them off of the windshield to clean windshield. The spring may be to weak to hold tight against windshield.
