Front windshield wipers are crashing into each other

The front windshield wipers are crashing into each other on my 2001 Chrysler Town and Country. I assume the timing needs to be adjusted. Is this something I can repair, or do I need to take it to the shop? Please help! Thank you so much!

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.

The factory spec is 28" fr both blades, but some blade companies recommend a slightly shorter blade for the passenger side (26"). Do that.
That will fix it. Dont even need a wrench for this one.

How do I get to the spark plugs in a 2001 chrysler town and country


3.3l or 3.8l fronts are easy. Back three, welcome to hell. From underneath, reach up along exhaust to get to the plugs and wires. If you don't want that easy approach, you remove the front cowling under the windshield that also houses the wiper motor assembly. Get parts from dealer (they are cheap and you don't want to do this again)

Windshield wipers dont work


Fuse # 5 in your panel should be a 20amp fuse, which provides power to wipers. Not 100% sure, but would bet there is a relay in that circuit before motor. Try to feel/hear, exactly where clicking is coming from. It is usually easy to simply narrow the click noise area down, then set finger lightly on relays, and feel it when it clicks. Pull it out & have tested or replace.
