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.

It can be faulty wiper motor or blown wiper control fuse.

Do you hear any kind of noise when you starter the wiper function.If yes then fuse is ok,but issue is wiper motor.
If no movement at all and no noise then its blown fuse or shorted/loose wiper control wiring:-----

2003 Mazda Tribute front and back washer pumps not working


did you check washer motor alone? find motor and power it with external 12 votls battery or use a cable to power it with your own battery. you need to hear sound. if it creates arcs when you touch wires motor can be burned. if it is burned inside fuse can still be ok. i replaced my washer motor on bmw last week and situation was so.

My 1993 ford taurus's wipers work part of the time. You can hear the relay click. but when they do work, the motor is fine. delay works and all.


Check if the wiper fuse is loose in the fuse box. Take it out and reinsert it. If it is still loose, take a small short piece of wire and insert it with the fuse to make in tight in its fuse slot.

I have audi 14 wiper blades are not working


It is possible that the linkage is jammed. Try turning the wipers on and gently pull the wiper arm by hand to see if it will move. It it starts to move you've found the problem.

If it doesn't move at all and the fuses are ok it is likely the wiper motor that has failed.

Front wipers stopped working but you can hear the motor run also


If the wipers were buried under snow/ice or frozen to the windshield, you may have blown the red 10 amp fuse located in cavity 9 in the fuse block located on the bottom left side of the instrument panel near the parking brake pedal.
In order of easiest to check:
1) ensure wipers not frozen to windshield.
2) ensure wiper arms are not loose on the pivot stud,
3) check the red 10 amp fuse.
You stated that "you can hear the motor". Which motor do you hear? The engine or the wiper motor?
If you hear the wiper motor, then the fuse is alright. Try 1) and 2) above.
