Snow, ice, dirt, and dust can interfere or damage your windshield wipers and the motion transmission mechanism. Broken or damaged bushings can cause the wipers to not work or work incompletely. These parts will also cause an annoying squeaking or grinding when they wear out. In general replacing windshield wiper transmission parts is not difficult. This may vary on some applications. It requires basic tools and removal and installation of small body parts such as cowl vent grilles. This replacement wiper transmission connecting rod bushings may be just what you need to get your windshield wiper system working properly again.
