I have had a similar problem with mine. Once I took the cover(s) off of where the wipers are connected to one another, I discovered that there was a little plastic cap missing that held the link from the motor to the wipers...two replacement caps were less than two dollars and for a single Mom with not much car repair knowledge, it was a doddle to fix...Good Luck!

If it appears that all linkages etc. under cowl are moving as they should, try this Shut wipers off and allow them to go to what normally would be "park" position. Lift cap on end by pivot (where they bolt on) and you'll find a nut on top. If wipers are already down where they belong, simply tighten those nuts, but be careful not to use too much force, it's pretty easy to snap those studs, just real snug is good. If wipers aren't where they should be, loosen nut first, pry up slightly near pivot area, then move wiper to correct spot & tighten.I would normally take wipers right off, and clean shavings off splines on pivots & inside arm, then re-install & tighten, but my guess is you'll have a hard time getting them to pop off, if you haven't done it before, so this may be good enough for you, but if you know how to get them off, clean them up as described is better.

Windshield wipers dont work its not the fuses and i could here the motor

If you can hear the motor running, then check under the bottom end of the wiper . There should be a nut or screw to tighten the blade to the motor.

I need to learn how to put the windshield wiper linkage back on

Remove the wiper arms completely. Turn on the wiper motor and then turn it off again, allowing it to park automatically.
Now put the wiper arms back so that the blades just touch the bottom edge of the windscreen, or wherever the correct position is. Tighten the nuts
Have fun!

I turn on my windshield wipers and i can hear the motor come on but the blades dont move

It is most likely one of two things
  1. The wipers have come loose on the shafts. Lift the plastic cover at the end of the wiper blade that attaches to the wiper transmission and turn the wipers on. If the shaft and/or nut is turning, then you can simplt tighten the nut to get them working.
  2. the arm from the motor has popped off. Remove the wiper arms by removing the nut mentioned above and pull up on the wiper slightly while LIGHTLY tapping on the shaft with a small hammer. (Be VERY careful not to damage the threads on the shaft.) Then remove the plastic cowl cover. You will then see the shaft that goes from the wiper motor to the wiper transmission assembly. If it is popped off, it can be popped back on again, but it probably will not stay. It is recommended that you replace the arm.

Windshied wipers not working all the time

wiper motor boards go bad in those motor assemblies. You can replace just the board in most applications.

Front blades not working fuse ok

The motor is usualy central to the wiper arms and either bolted to the firewall or inside the plenum chamber at the bottom of the windscreen.If you can hear the motor you can find it, track it down by listening.Your probly right about linkage however if that is the case you should be able to move the wipers with your hand and they should move freely if they dont you may have other problems.

I have a 1990 Dodge Caravan, and I replaced the windsheild wiper motor and can hear it running, but the wiper blades are still not working; is there anything else that I'm not checking?.....

hi if your can hear it running and all the arms are attatched from the motor to the wiper arm assembley then look at the main arm that comes from the motor where it is bolted on see if its tighted up if so turn your wipers on and watch the main arm nut which is fastened to the motor see if the nut if moving but not the arm as it will be held by splines and these wear off if the nut is not moving and you are sure the motors running then you need to get a new motor
