Rear Window Wiper Motor Removal & Installation To Remove:

Yes you can adjust them yourself. First you need to check that the wiper arms are not bent. If not, remove the cap at the wiper arm base, under it u will find a nut, remove this nut. you should now be able to remove the wiper arm. (it is comon for caravan wiper arms to be corroded on. If the arm dosen't come off, you may need to heat up the wiper arm with a propane torch. be careful not to melt the plastic cowel under the arm. OR you can use a wiper puller or a battery puller. do not force it, you can break the arm, DO NOT PRY AGAINST THE COWEL OR WINDSHIELD.
Once both arms are off, turn your van on and turn the wipers on. watch the wiper posts, turn the wipers off and watch the wiper posts return and stop in the "parked" position. Turn the van off. Install the passanger wiper arm first, it is positioned closest to the bottom an inch or two above the black cowel. It should be parrallel to the cowel. next install the drivers side wiper arm. it is positioned about 4 inches above the passanger wiper. again running parrallel to the cowel and passanger wiper. tighten the lock nuts down (do not over tighten) wet down your windshield with glass cleaner or windshield washer fluid and test wipers. If they still hit you can lower the passanger one a little or raise the drivers one a little (careful you don't raise the drivers one too much or it will 'jump' off the windshield at the top of the wipe).
good luck, hope this helps.

Testimonial: "Thank you so much for the help!! My brother read your reply and fixed the wipers in no time. I am very appreciative of your help! Maryg :)"
Remove the wiper arms (pop off the caps at the base) and the 15mm nut. Take out the screws that hold down the wind
shield cowl lift it away to expose the washer hoses. Unplug the wiper motor (center driver's side) by pulling
out the red clip on it and squeezing the tab. Remove the 13mm nut from the wiper motor idler arm and take
out the 3 10mm bolts that hold it in place. Squeeze it out from under the wiper transmission, or loosen the lower bolts. You'll see them. Not a difficult job, just take your time.
Hope I've helped.

Look at the wiper arm. Where the shaft comes through there is a cap on the arm. Pop it up and you will see a nut remove nut and you should be able to get arm off.
Hope that helps!
