Default windshield wiper linkage?

Hey guys. I've done a lot of searching on this issue, and I'm still not sure what part I need. We have a 2003 Ion with a sad drivers side wiper. The base of the wiper can move nearly an inch, while the passenger side is still nice and tight. Reading the threads I'm not sure what I need to replace here. Do I need a new wiper transmission, or the wiper linkage? Part numbers would be awesome. Thanks for your help.

they come as an assembly, the link ends get weak and break, so buy the whole assembly.

Thanks for the replies! I've read that thread a few times (even before posting this) and still wasn't sure just what it was I needed. I think I have it now though. Does P/N 15221904 Windshield Wiper and washer components Module sound right?

Thanks for your help guys. This would have to happen right when Colorado actually sees some rain. Now I just have to try and find a good deal on the part. Can't wait for winter to hit so I can change out the ignition switch again.

I wouldn't buy a used one on a bet, buy a new one at the Saturn dealer. It's going to cost $80 +/-.

Just for the record, it is a really crappy design, but it's Bosch's design, not GM's. That's what you get for outsourcing important components.

getsaturnparts.com is showing 15221904 at $142. $80 sounds much nicer then that number. Would a local dealer really charge $60+- less, or am I looking at the wrong piece? Not trying to be a PITA.

Well, it's been about 18 months since I bought one, the price could have gone up. That's a pretty steep jump, but parts are a real money maker for auto makers.

Default Re: windshield wiper linkage?

I had the same wiper flopping problem and found an improved version. My Ion had the wiper transmission break again, this is the 2nd time. I found a re-designed transmission on Amazon from autopartsdirecttoyou and they have replaced the piece of junk plastic ends with metal ends and new bolts. I thought I needed a wiper motor but did not. The ends of the wiper linkage/transmission stripped or broke off and my wipers were almost dangerous to use. If you type saturn ion wiper transmission into Amazon, it will come right up, I paid $89 for it and installed it myself. It was about an hour and a half job but my saturn dealer wanted $260.00 and it was probably the same piece of junk they put on the last time. My recommendation is buy the new metal pivot design and install it yourself.
