I wish I could give you a run down on how to do it. This is the best I can come up with.

The wiper arm can usually be found in the space between the hood and the windshield. To remove the unit, unscrew the bolts and remove the connections.

thank you for the drw. It looks easy but im unsure how to "pop" the knuckle off the motor arm .

I may just leave it alone as its really only about 2" higher than in the parked position and again im not 100% thats it.

Any ideas on a place to buy the chrome center cap cheap ?? Tried junkyard but they sell them with the rims

Thank you again

Try the for sale area and look for people parting out a car. Otherwise Ebay.

I've only done it on an S10(arm got bent), it was a ROYAL PAIN, and when I finally popped the knuckles, one cracked and it became a pain to keep shredding my hand getting in there everytime the cracked one popped off again. I ignored it on my Park Ave. Wasnt going to go through that again. Sorry we dont have an easy fix. For those reading, Remember to free those wipers before you turn them on. My wife keeps forgetting to turn hers off when she comes home.

I just changed the wiper motor on a '95 Sedan Deville today.
Three bolts hold it to the firewall. The bottom one is tricky, because it is hard to see what you're doing, and it'* easy to drop the bolt into dark crevass' if you're not carefull.

Getting the arm popped off the knuckle is tricky. It will be easier if you have a helper.
You almost have to use two pry bars, and use one to push off of.

The motor on this Caddy was only working on HIGH speed, and then it would only move the wipers about three inches, up & down. Nothing would happen on LOW speed or DELAY. I don't know if a different motor malfunction would cause the parking problem and otherwise work, but I wouldn't be at all surprised. I was looking at a '95 LeSabre in a dealer lot last week, that had the exact symptom as goldfinger described.

And if you get a motor from a wrecking yard, plug it into your harness and make sure it works & parks correctly before you bolt it in. We got a replacement from a yard, and it did the exact same thing as the original was doing on the Caddy. And it was from a 1998 car. Had to go back to the yard and exchange it for another. The one that worked was from a 1990 car. So you always have to check to make sure they work OK.
