There are a variety of things that have to be in constant motion under the hood in order for things to run smoothly. The wipers on a car are used on a daily basis, but usually never given a second thought until there are issues that need to be addressed. In order for the power that the wiper motor produces to reach the wiper arms, the linkage will have to work.

If you fail to get the proper repairs done to the linkage on time, then you may face losing the functionality of your wipers. The time and energy that is invested in getting this type of work done will more than pay off in the end. Our professionals will be able to get the linkage fixed or replaced in a matter of hours.

Cadillac SRX V6-3.0L - Windshield Wiper Linkage Replacement (Front) - Denver, Colorado
Martin saved me almost $600 today. AutoNation Park Meadows in Lone Tree, CO told me that the windshield wiper linkage on my car was broken and quoted me just under $700 to replace it. Martin showed up and noticed that the bolts on my wiper arms were loose. He tightened them, and now my wipers work! He was able to cancel the parts I purchased and I only paid labor. What a great experience. This guy knows what he's doing and is an honest mechanic. Maybe that's why he doesn't work at a dealership? Either way, you can't go wrong with Martin. Choose him for your car repair. 10/10. Would recommend.
