Re: 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.
Yea had that problem the scews for the arms are coming loose. you have to take that black grill off (phillips) and you will see them and u will be suprized how that could happen. I think its a 12 -15 mm

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:----- For complete troubleshooting i suggest you few helpful links with accurate solutions. ------------- Click the link below:-------
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.
WIPER ARM LINKAGE COULD BE BINDING.REMOVE WIPER ARM TO SEE IF WIPER MOTOR OPERATE SLOWLY.IF YES CHECK TO MAKE SURE WIPER MOTOR GETTING GOOD GROUND CONNECTIONS BY CHECKING MOVING WIRES .IF WIPER MOTOR SPEEDS UP YOU HAVE GROUND WIRE PROBLEM. IF WIPER MOTOR REMAIN SLOW GROUND WIRES CHECK OUT OKAY.REPLACE WIPER MOTOR.IF WIPER MOTOR RUN FAST NORMAL SPEED AFTER DISCONNECTING WIPER ARM.WIPER ARM LINKAGES IS BINDING OR NEED SOME LUBRICATION TRY WD40 SEE WHAT HAPPENS.LUBRICATION DONT HELP WIPER LINKAGE COULD BE DAMAGED.
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. PT Stanley
