SOURCE: wipers go too far at 50+ mph on my 2002 subaru impreza

dont know the car BUT of all the different cars i have seen there are alot built like the following. you can remove the entire arm from the stud . most likely yours is made with a plastic cap covering a nut inside on the post the arm mounts to. a small flat screw driver should suffice to remove the plastic cap ( most likely you will need a 10mm socket to remove the nut) remove the cap and the nut. pull off the arm straight up off the post. notice the splined grooves on the post. put the arm back in place slightly in a better position on the splines and re install the nut and cap.
I hope this helps. I hope your is built this way because it would be a fast easy fix.

Power window stuck down on passenger side of 97 Nissan Maxima

to get the window up without the motor you will have to take the door panel apart. You will have to take the motor out of the loop to move the mechanism, raise the window and put the locked motor back in to hold it up.

How do you remove a oil pan from a 1984 z28 camero

Drain the oil completely, remove all the bolts and drop the pan. On 84 I don't believe you have to remove the tranny. Just remove the bolts.

Rear spring broke,driver side

search for a quik strut for the car on ebay, that has a mount, a spring, and a new strut already assembled. or you can find a used strut and spring on eBay, sold by junkyards. that way you unbolt one and bolt the other in without taking the whole thing apart. good sense mandates do both sides if you go new.

2002 Saturn SL1 requires clutch replacement. After disconnecting the transmission, can the transmission be moved to get enough clearance so the clutch disc, pressure plate and release bearing be...

not usually. in a front wheel drive car the trans should be dropped out of the way to allow clearance sorry but its really not much more work with a set of ramps supporting the car a floor jack can support the trans while you disconnect everything allowing you to remove it.

How do you change the transmission filter in a 2002 Saturn SL1 1.9 liter engine? Can an after market filter be used or is it best to get a dealer part?

saturns use a spin on transmission filter,similar to the motor oil filter.after-market filters like FRAM or PUROLATER are as good or better than dealer parts and likely less expensive.transmission fluid is drained from the plug in the pan,again,like the motor oil.

Is it hard to change the serpintine belt? Can I get to it without taking the whole car apart or need special tools?

find the belt tensioner. on the front is a place to put a racket and or a racket with a socket. put it on and pull in the direction that you can and you will see the belt gain slack. While you hold the rachet take the belt off,install it the reverse but pull the same way on the tensioner.
