Is it possible that another person could observe this and describe the problem. you are making no sense whatsoever. It is not uncommon for the serrations or splines inside the base of the wiper arms to strip out when you try and run the wipers when they are frozen to the windows. this causes the arms to move lackadaisically or not at all if that is what you are trying to say. the remedy for this is to take off the nuts, remove the arms and replace them with a set you buy from a junkyard. take your old arms with you so you get identical ones and make sure they do not sell you another set which is already stripped out. if you get them on ebay they will be stripped out. make sure the wiper switch is OFF before you attach the replacement arms, left and right arms are different so mark them BEFORE before you remove them.
Remove wiper arms,open hood and remove plastic cowl(cover) at windshield,it is held in with plastic clips,the wiper motor is under the cover held in with 4 bolts(10mm).reinstall everything and turn on motor without wiper arms ,then turn it off so it finds its off position-reinstall wiper arms
the wiper motor is on the front of the car you need to take the wiper arms off undo do the spreyers and undo the plastic clips on the shield (under the arms you took off is the plastic shield i speak of) you need to remove after all that is off the wiper motor is there :)
There is a plastic cover that pops off at the pivot end of the wiper arm. pulling up on this with a hook of some kind from the furthest end should release it. Under it you will find a nut that holds the wiper arm to the shaft. It's quite common for the nut to come loose and the shaft spins without moving the arm. Try tightening this nut (with the ignition on, be sure the wiper motor is off, then turn off ignition and put the wiper arm in the parked position). This is a common problem if you've ever tried to turn on the wiper when it was frozen to the glass.
There was a recall a while back ago for this problem. Check with your local dealer and see if the recall is still active. The problem is the circuit board on the wiper motor assemble where the wire harness connects. The solder the plastic clip on the board breaks and will cause this problem and at worst the wipers don't work at all. If you good with soldering, it's a simple fix by just re-soldering the wire harness clip back on and if you like you can buy the replacement circuit board at Auto Zone. The will have the step by step instructions for you to get the job done, a light tap will once and a while fix the problem but you may loose the whole function of the wipers. Good luck.
First remove outer wiper ,take off plastic guard there is a bolt underneath it remve wiper thenremove 2 screws that hold grab handle on inside of rear door.remove 2 plastic push tabs with removal tool.pry plastic cover off carefully removing push tabs with removal tool or flat blade screwdriver about 10 of them if I remember correctly pull bottom half of cover out of each conection and lift off at center. peel plastic from gate carefully as you have to put it back on.this exposes the motor disconnect grey plug to wiper motor ,three 8 mm screws hold motor to tailgate best of luck
Easy done . Remove wiper arms with the hood closed. Open the hood. there a number of press clips that look like philips screws. on the front of the wiper plastics, remove them, remove the rubber trim. lift off the top plastics revealing the bottom fixing. there are 4 8mm bolts that you need to remove and remove the air and water vent screws. waggle the scection loose, remove the washer pipes from passenger side and off the jets, unclip the harness of the wiper motor and you can then remove from the car
My 2001 Chevrolet Malibu had the same problem. The wipers would not stop. wipers wouldn't turn off. The problem was the wiper control module filled with water, seals break down with time. The wiper control module is attached to the front of the wiper motor under a black cover (three screws). I had to remove both wiper arms and the plastic debris guard between the window and the hood. Unplug the harness attached to the wiper motor, remove the three screws. The board is in te plastic cover. I pulled board out. dried it, put it back in and sealed the compartment with silicon. Works like new.
you have to remove the wiper arm first under the arm there a plastic cap remove it big screw undo it lift the tailgate remove the inner plastic cover bolt and plastic clip go easy its plastic after removing the panel you should see the motor unscrew it that it reasemble the only thing that you got to take care when you tight the big nut back dont over tight it you might break the glass it my job ive done 100 of those job and i alway hate when it time to screw that nut back go easy everything will go well cheers pierre
