      Try to use the Find a Shop feature od AutoMD to see a list of service shops near you with their address, telephone # and labor rate per hour. You can call a couple of them to compare prices.

      Place the keys in the ignition, turn the keys to accessory mode (key-on/engine off), and make sure the wiper motor switch is in the off position. Turn the ignition switch to the off position and remove the keys. The wiper arms are now in their parked position, although may not be properly aligned.

      Access the bottom of the compromised wiper blade arm. You may have to open the hood or remove the wiper arm cowling (refer to the owners manual for the removal of the cowling on your specific vehicle if required).

      Locate the retaining nut at the bottom of the wiper arm assembly. Some models will have a protective plastic cap covering the nut. Other vehicles may have a hinged cover that is part of the wiper arm itself. Pry the cap off with a straight-edge screwdriver or unsnap the hinged cover by prying it up from the bottom of the wiper arm with the screwdriver to reveal the retaining nut.

      Hold the wiper arm stable with one hand and remove the nut with the ratchet and a socket with the other.

      Wiggle the wiper arm gently with one hand while gently prying the base of the arm off of the splined wiper arm stud. The stud has small splines that hold the wiper arm in the correct position unless otherwise compromised. The wiper arm will feel secured to the stud, but the combination of wiggling (gently) and prying with the screwdriver will work to remove the arm.

      Place the wiper arm back onto the splined wiper arm stud by positioning it in the off position. Some vehicles may have a wiper arm stop that the arm rests against in the off position. If so, make sure the wiper arm is resting against the wiper arm stop when replacing it on the stud.

      Replace the retaining nut and tighten with the ratchet and socket. Repeat this procedure for the other wiper arm if desired.

      Use two sets of pliers to bend the wiper arm back into position if the wiper arm has been bent. Hold the wiper arm with one set of pliers to anchor it and use the other set to bend it so the wiper is perpendicular to the windshield. If the arm is bent too badly, replacing the wiper arm may be a more viable option.

      The location of the release lever should be in your owner's manual. Most release levers are located under the dash on the left side.

      Sounds to me like the wiper motor is taking too much load, unhook the wiper motor and switch on the wipers and see if it makes any diffrence, if it does then change the wiper motor.

      Did you already check the condition of your fuse (blown, wiring harness (maybe cut/pinch/corroded) and switches (it may be damaged) in your automatic seat belts?

    Warning light airbag stays on
     
    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      Check this with dealer, it means the SRS is faulty and may not deploy during accident.

      also if you bought this vehicle used the air bag may have been deployed already and not replaced. some shady body shops will not replace the air bag and just replace the steering wheel.

    The latch won't open the fuel door
     
    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      Can you open it manually? Most likely the cable is loose or broken or the latch lock is jammed (replace parts as required).
