How do you replace the wiper mechanism on a Tercel?


I’m not a but I did a wiper overhaul on my wife’s last weekend. Please with me even if I don’t use the terms.

MOTOR: Disconnect the (black) terminal wire the battery first, otherwise tampering may set off your airbagsiif car has that feature. Trust me, things are expensive to replace, and you want to risk it. Next, the electrical plug from the and unbolt the four bolts connect the motor to the wall. The will still be connected by a arm to the wiper transaxle inside.

Here’s the part where people find difficulty, as I did. **

The rotating arm on the motor a ball, the socket for which is the end of the arm on the through the hole in the firewall. is a small clip on the arm of the mechanism the hole that you can use to hook the arm to the in the firewall to keep it stabalized you work on it, and also so that you have to fish the arm out of the hole a screwdriver when it becomes

You can maneouvre the arm inside so that you can this hook by manipulating the wiper arms if you are having but be careful that you don’t them. If your wiper do not move freely once the motor is disconnected from the you’ve got a whole other regarding the freedom of movement of wiper transaxle hinges, and you are at of stripping the delicate teeth engage your wiper when the motor spins if you it into position. If the transaxle is you will have to remove from the top, and soak the part in Varsol, and then try to it swing freely again. Back to the motor.

Once you get the inside arm stabilized the firewall with the clip, next task will be to get the out of the socket. There is a tool you can but if you carefully get a correctly sized wrench in there, you can break the out of it. Another option available, if you can the rotating bar enough, is to undo the that connects the rotating arm to the itself, thus avoiding the to break the ball out of the socket.

Either way you do it, make a mental (or use a whiteout pen) to mark the of the rotating arm when you haul it this way you can install the new motor in the position; you’ll want to do because the wiper motor is on a timer and the wipers will / start at wierd positions if you it incorrectly.

As an obiter comment, the geniuses in made the holes for the new wiper (the ones to bolt the to the firewall) too small for the old grommets rubber things through the screws go), and you may have a task to try to get the damn thing to the firewall again with the new I ended up having to shave of the rubber from each of the grommets to get it to stick.

Another that needs to be made: sure the motor is properly with the little wire comes from the motor and against one of the mounting screws. If the isn’t grounded, the motor not engage. Also, if you have connected, and it still doesn’t try looking at the fuse. On the 91 tercel I on, I got all of this done and nothing I almost found the nearest until my wife asked the fuse. (It was #20 under the kick next to the driver’s left Sure enough, blown.

The installation of the new motor is the reverse of the your only job will be to get the back into the socket, a which cost me a bloody but I always get a bloody knuckle.
