Chrysler Crossfire
Windshield wiper arms

This is one information page of my collection of what I have repaired on my Crossfire.

You should not do any repair on your car if you don't have enough experience and knowledge! You use this information at your own risk! Don't blame me if something goes wrong.


Chrysler Crossfire and Mercedes SLK R170 share many parts. You use all this information at your own risk.

You have to work with the electric parts. Disconnect the battery, the negative terminal ! When disconnecting the battery the alarm and radio will be reset, be sure to have any codes that's needed!

3: Cleaning the drainage outlets

If you have removed the cover panel under the wiper arms it's a good idea to clean the space under. Here are drainage that must be clean, if they are blocked by dirt the water takes another way, often inside the car. And your fine car get rusty !

I find it difficult to work here because the hood did only open in a marrow angle. The original gas damper had a release that make it open almost full vertical. In my case I have to loose the gas damper.

A wooden beam hold the hood straight up. Be carefully that it don't fall down !

Use the vacuum cleaner to remove all dirt here.

Right, passenger side, the drainage is fully blocked, not good, a seventeen years collection of dirt. I'm very glad now that I opened the cover panel. Are there already rust holes under this ?

After the vacuum cleaner has done its job the water now have a free passage out. After this I clean all surface and waxed them to better protect from rust.
