Question about 2001 Volkswagen Golf
Driver side trans arm fell off, ice froze wiper blades, turne on, wiper didn't work, pass did. Wiper trans arm bushing worn out..replaced with new. Turned on, now here a grinding scraping type sound and wipers slowed down little by little and then stopped. Is it the motor? This is in a '98 Nissan Altima
SOURCE: 1999 jetta vr6, wipers are
Before blaming the motor I would check that the linkage mechanism is well lubricated. Have a look under the bonnet - hood near the bulkhead where the wiper shafts come through - you should see the linkage rods there. It may need release spray to start with but grease is what keeps it going. Mind your fingers - that is one powerful electric motor - so don't poke around when the wipers are switched on.
Hope this helps a bit. D

remove wipers. remove plastic covering by loosening plastic screws first. unplug wiper motor wires. there are about three 10mm nuts at the motor location and you also have to unscrew the big nuts that were below the wipers when you unscrewed them. replacement is reversal.

Mike, the way i do it is. Turn the wipers on intermittint, when it stop's switch the off. now put the arms on at the bottom, then adjust to get them out you want.
Hope i helped!

wiper gears may be broken, got to junk yard and buy motor and gear assembly for windshield wipers, should only take an hour to change out.
