On certain motors a belt can be found that's shorter and just bypass the pulley for it. Others have a pulley that replaces the compressor which requires removing the actual compressor.
#2229 of 2268 Removal of wiper arm?
Jan 16, 2010 (3:35 pm)
Hi, can anyone tell me the proper way to remove the wiper arm on a 1994 bonneville? The motor has become disconnected with the wipers and I need to remove the vent sheild at the bottom of the windshield, but to do this I need to remove the wipers. Thank you!

List up on the wiper to pull it away from the windshield when you've turned off the key with the wipers midswipe.
On the base of the wiper at the pivot is a tab sticking up along the side. Pull that tab out to move a plate in place to hold the wiper up off the windshield and take the spring pressure off.
Then you can wiggle the whole wiper straight up off the hub splines. Enjoy.

#2232 of 2268 wiper stroke??
Jan 17, 2010 (3:00 pm)
Hello, with the help of Imidazol97 I was able to get the wipers off and the motor arm attached again. Now I have the problem of the stroke is only 1/4 of what it should be? No matter where I position it on the spines, I am only getting the 1/4 motion. How can I correct this and how do I know if something is bent, I have never seen what it was before the arm come off the ball/ motor? Thanks in advance!
#2233 of 2268 2005 SE Transmission issues
Jan 18, 2010 (6:29 pm)
I have just bought an 05 SE with 146,000 miles, the car is in grate shape and seems to run just fine. I have done the standard neccesities, change oil new plugs new air filter changed fluid and filter on tranny. There is a whining noise I believe from the tranny as the noise increases and decreases with the engine RPM, I have replace the serpentine belt and checked the pullys and the whining persists.
Are there some cheaper items to begin with first that I may not be considering before the dreded transmission shop and the violation without dinner or a drink first?

Does it happen when the RPM's increase or speed?

The power steering pump is low on the back of the engine. That might be low on fluid or causing the whine. You should check the positions of the steering hoses to see if any are where they can touch the firewall to give an echo effect vibrating it making the noise louder. The power steering whine should be sensitive to steering load if you turn the steering wheel. The power steering hoses are known for transmitting sounds to the body. Also look at heater and AC hoses.
Otherwise, transmission pump might be a cause.
If you have a camera that records mpgs, you might record the sound and post a link to it on a photobucket.com free account. Others here may have experience and be able to distinguish the sounds from each other.
