If drivers wiper arm will not move by motor operation and can be easily moved by hand ( with wiper on or off ) suspect disconnected/broken linkage. If wiper arm will not move by motor and takes effort ( With wiper on ) by hand... suspect seized wiper pivot

The wipes want move up or down but I hear the motor and the fuse is good


If the motor can be heard running, either the wiper transmission linkage has seperated at/near the wiper motor or one of the two wiper pivots has seized not allowing the linkage to operate properly. If you can move one or more wiper arms by hand with the motor in the "off" position, it will most likely be a linkage seperation. WIth the wiper motor in the "on" position, if you can make the wiper arms move together, most likely a seized pivot

Driver wiper not working


Yes. Immediately in front of your windshield is a panel about 3 or 4 inches wide and that panel, which is the same color as your car, goes from one front fender across to the other one.
That panel, which has many vent holes or louvres in it, also has 2 holes for your wiper arms and blades, where they attach.
That panel will come off, sometimes you have to remove the whole hood of the car to get it off.
(You have to take both wiper arms & blade assembly off first.)
You will then find the linkage from the wiper motor to the driver's wiper arm/blade is disconnected.
(The wiper motor is about the size of your fist, and has a few wires attached to it.)
Probably a plastic bushing has fallen apart on the connecting link.
You will need to get a new or good used connecting link and attach it.

When i turn on the wipers in my 89 s10 blazer the washers come on and the blades move only a little or not at all


alot of times it can be as simple as the wiper arms loose on the splined, aluminum, were they connect to the wiper transmission. if they are tight, start engine, turn wipers to on position, and if they arent working, tap on the wiper motor, under hood on fire wall, with a hammer and see if they operate, or try to move. if so you either have a bad board(removable circuit board on motor) or bad motor. if nothing happens, have a qualified mechanic, check the circuit from switch, to wiper motor. james white. white automotive, hopkins mo

I have a problem with my wipers and this is not my wipers motor


Ok, from the start. The motor is connected to a bar that runs to the wiper posts. These post are what the arms of the wiper blades are connected to. The arms hold the wiper blades. if you just had new arms and blades, they may not be on the post all the way. If not, and your sure the motor works, then the bar has fallen off at either the motor, or the wiper post. That's all there is to it

Rear window wiper problem


I had a 94 wagon, and have a 99 wagon, and 2001 wagon. I think what you need there is a new rear wiper arm. This is about 44 bucks at getsaturnparts.net. The problem is getting the old wiper arm off without breaking the rear window. The corrosion between the wiper arm and the motor output shaft basically turns the metal into one piece, which may well explain why your arm spring is not holding the arm close to the window. Also explains why you cannot find used saturn rear wiper arms or rear motors on ebay. There is a small sliding lock at the base, but having moved it aside you will find the corrosion will not let the arm go anywhere.

Having done this twice, my approach as follows:

Get a new wiper arm

Take a hack saw and carefully saw the top of the wiper arm off exposing the motor shaft end. After spraying WD40 or other corrosion remover on get a small gear puller and pull the arm off the shaft. Use never seize and slide the new one on.

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.
