New to the world of owning a Panther, and I couldn’t be happier with my purchase. When I bought the car, the windshield wipers wouldn’t fit properly; when off, the wiper will extend to the fully raised position and this is where it will stay. I have read, researched, and played around and I came up with a solution for my problem.
How To Fix Windshield Wipers Motor
Using the image below, I determined which parts are applicable to the motor mechanism, how they work, and what they do. I spent a few days fiddling with the wiper motor, lubricating things, playing with the spring release mechanism, removing and refitting parts – and I almost got it working.
How To Replace The Windshield Wiper Motor?
After a few more days of this bugging me, I pulled the thing back and found that there is a small metal tab under the windshield wiper motor output arm (listed as part 17A436 in the diagram above.) This small metal tab rotates and it moves the wind flap ( the rectangular piece of plastic that sits under the wiper motor output arm). THIS IS THE ONE THAT CONTROLS PARKING THE WIPER WHEN YOU DIE! If that doesn’t make sense, keep reading, I have tons of photos to go with this post.
2) Remove the wiper motor cover, and expose the wiper motor output arm, wiper link and wiper motor. Clean this area – this is where you will catch all the leaves and twigs that have fallen on your car over the years. (In this photo I have removed part 7T4Z-17C526-B, the windshield wiper arm plastic cover to expose the bolt that connects the windshield wiper motor output arm to the windshield wiper motor, part # N804040-S2). I think the EASY way to remove this plastic cover is to use masking tape. Place the tape over the plastic cover and pull it off! A plastic cover should come with it.
2) On the lower right side of the windshield wiper output arm, you can see a spring loaded pin that retracts and allows the wiper motor output arm to rotate independently of the windshield wiper motor. RESETTING THE SPRING LOADED PIN MAY SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM!!! TRY THIS FIRST! You can follow this is the CarMon thread here. ). Here you can also see how the wiper arm linkage is connected to the wiper motor output arm. You can remove it with a flat head screwdriver by lifting the tab up, then sliding the part off.
3) In this photo you can see the clip that attaches the wiper motor output arm to the wiper link has been removed. An 8mm wrench will open the bolt that attaches the output arm to the wiper motor. Undo the linkage, and make sure you MOVE THE LINKAGE SIDEWAYS (in case you forget and turn your wipers on at some point.) Remove the bolts, and you can pull the wiper motor output arm.

5) Here the wiper motor output arm has been removed, exposing the wiper motor wind latch. Note which way the windlass is installed, there is a large plastic/metal tab sticking out of the windlass. THIS TAB IS THE ONE THAT CONTROLS THE PLACEMENT OF THE WIPER CAR!
6) The wind latch has been removed, exposing the spring for the windshield wiper wind latch (17C522) underneath which pushes the wind latch to the bottom of the wiper motor output arm.
7) Here, the windshield wiper wind latch spring has been removed, cleaned and bent back to its original shape.
8) Here is the bottom of the windshield wiper motor output arm, and the metal tab sticking out. This tab moves the windlass a few millimeters back and forth with each rotation (you’ll be able to see this movement in the video at the end). The notch on the bottom of the wiper motor output arm is what actually fits into the protruding tab on the windshield. When you turn the wiper off, the tab on the wind latch goes into the notch on the wiper motor’s output arm, and this prevents the wiper from MOVING UP (if it’s working properly). The spring-loaded pin pops out, and the wiper goes DOWN. If the wind latch cut is worn, the tab on the bottom of the wiper motor output arm does not move the wind latch back and forth properly with each revolution. Therefore, the tab on the wind latch is not properly aligned to the notch on the bottom of the wiper motor output arm. When you turn the wiper off, the tab and notch are misaligned, and this allows the wiper to continue moving with the windshield wiper motor. If the notch is properly aligned to the bottom of the wiper motor output arm, it separates the wiper motor output arm from the windshield wiper motor and causes the wiper to park itself.

Here is a COMPARISON of OLD windlatch and NEW windlatch. It’s very hard to see, but you can see the oval cut on the old windlass is larger (worn) than the new one. Over hundreds of thousands of rounds and the metal tab rubbing against the plastic windlass, the part just wears out and stops working. You can see the wind flap tab very well in this photo.
9) Clean the shoes that hold: the wind latch spring, and the wind latch. Oil the spring and put it back in (it has a tab on it, so it should go into place). Place the vent latch in the correct place with the tab facing the correct direction (I forgot to take a picture of this).
10) Reinstall the windshield wiper motor output arm, and lubricate the entire mechanism (including the spring loaded pin. You can see that I pressed the spring loaded pin, and rotate the windshield wiper motor output arm independently of the windshield wiper motor. This allows you to lubricate the spring-loaded pin. The windshield wiper motor output arm is notched where it connects to the windshield wiper motor, so you can simply reinstall the wiper motor output arm in the correct orientation and align with the windshield wiper motor. .
11) Here I have linked the windscreen wiper link arm to the windscreen wiper motor output arm, reinstalled the retaining clip and replaced the wiper arm cover plastic cover. Be careful when you connect the windshield wiper linkage to the wiper motor output arm.

13) This video shows the windshield wipers working PROPERLY! Watch the gray plastic wind flap, you can see it move left and right in the shoe it sits on with each revolution of the windshield wiper motor. When I close the windshield wipers you can see that the wind latch is in the correct orientation where the TAB wind latch lines up with the wiper motor output arm notch! When my wipers don’t seat correctly, it’s because the wind latch does NOT go back to where it should be to align its tab to the wiper motor output arm notch. At the 0:15 mark, you can see that I closed the wipers, the wind flaps were NOT in the correct orientation, and the wipers were NOT POSITIONED CORRECTLY! When I turned the wiper back on, and then turned it off at the 0:20 mark, you could see that it parked RIGHT!
The part cost $13.97 Canadian and I paid $10 for a tube of grease. It took me about 6 hours to learn my windshield wiper system like the back of my hand – but when I went to replace the windshield for the last time, it took me about 45 minutes (and I’m a photographer too.)
I hope this helps some people solve the problem of their windshield wipers not parking properly. Parts are cheap, and I’ve found airlocks for about $4 at Tasca Parts Center tasca parts center.
I’m not sure why my image isn’t showing – I’m using a thread-specific “insert image” and it just appears as a link limited by the hyperlink formatting… if anyone can help, that would be great…..
Sea Clearly: Why You Should Upgrade Your Boat’s Wiper Motors
Good! I’ve been meaning to tear mine up in Lincoln since it started this craziness after it got cold last fall. Just haven’t had the motivation to do it yet.
For the record, this should all be exactly the same for any ’95-’02, probably mostly the same if not exactly the same for the ’92-’94 as well. Applies to Crown Victoria, Grand Marquis and Town Car as they all use the same basic assembly. After ’03, they changed the entire wiper setup, and along with no longer having the parking feature, they also had an electronic control board in the motor assembly. If the wipers act on the ’03+, it will
