You probably bent or broke the wiper linkage check under the hood and see if you can get to the wiper linkage from there to see if it just popped off. If not you will have to take the cowling off the bottom of the windshield and check it out.
A replacement linkage is not that expensive and if your halfway decent with tools you could replace it just remember if you remove the wipers do not leave the arms up incase they drop down and crack the windshield.

My 1990 nissan stanza had ice on windshield, I tured on wipers & nothing The motor runs but wipers don't


If the ice buildup was severe enough and you tried to run your wipers while they were frozen in place, the wiper transmission has probably failed, slipped a joint and now the motor will turn but it will not turn the wiper arms. You will have to open up the wiper panel and visually check to see what part has failed in that wiper transmission.

Wipers were frozen but would not work when thawed


if you turned them on when they were frozen then you may have damaged the motor or linkage to wipers. the first thing to do is to check your fuses to make sure the wiper fuse is good. if not then replace the fuse and try the wipers, also turn key on with engine off, turn wipers on and listen to see if you hear the wiper motor running if you do then maybe something came apart,most linkage snaps together, hope this helpscc019cf.gif

1990 sentra wiper inop


Hopefully there isn't any damage. There is a small black plastic cover at the base of the wiper arm that is conceling a nut. Pull the cover up and try tightening the nut, maybe it just came loose.

1990 Sentra left wiper inop


Hi. I had this happen to me on my 2000 F-150. You stripped out the gears in the wiper arm where it mounts on the motor. Replace the wiper arm on that side. They are inexpensive and very easy to change. Hope this helps. Let me know if I can be of anymore assistance. spellcheck.gif
