My wipers quit moving. If I move one wiper b hand they both move fine.
I seen on a response that you can access the linkage from under the cowl. Is the cowl the plastic in front of the windshield on the outside?
I had a similar problem the plastic in front of the windshield is the cowl. to remove it I had to pop plastic cover over nuts holding wiper arms. remove them then remove all the screws and two plastic pop retainers and a rubber strip and a number of slide on clips to remove the two piece cowl then remove the electrical plug on the motor and three hex head screws holding the assembly in place (if you extend the linkage toward passenger side it will be easier to remove the assembly) you can get
replacement bushings on line at www.rockauto.com I couldn't find them locally here but did find them on line . the ones I got are wiper linkage bushings help part no 49451 they are difficult to remove so I cut the worn ones off then used a proper sized socket and c clamp to install the new ones bigbobpa

If the wipers are not working but you can hear the motor, there is one of two problems. The wiper pivots are seized or the wiper linkage is disconnected.Can you move the wipers by hand with the wipers in the off position? If so, the linkage is disconnected. Can you move the wipers by hand with the wipers in the on position by using force? If so, suspect seized wiper pivots
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
Your wiper linkage has come off the wiper motor. To reconnect the linkage, first remove the wiped arms, the remove the wiped cowl. The wiper cowl bolts are located under the hood and screws through the spaces in the cowl. Reconnect linkage, reinstall cowl, reinstall wiped arms.
The wiper linkage is either broken, or has become un-attached...You will need to remove the wiper arms and plastic shroud above the linkage to inspect...When re-assembling be sure to have the wipers turned off, and in the down position...when mounting the arms back onto the spindles...Hope this helps.
Remove the black plastic cowling that goes around the wipers in front of the windshield and behind the hood. Then check to see if the rod linkage that operates the wipers has come off, or time to replace wiper motor, but most likely the linkage has come apart.
sounds like a loose nut. there are nuts that hold the wiper arms on, they may be under a cover but theyre at the base of the wiper arm. also there's a nut that holds the wiper linkage onto the wiper motor. if you can move the wipers independently, it's the nuts connecting the wiper arms.if you move one arm and the other moves with it, it's the nut holding the linkage to the motor.
if you open the hood look towards the base of the windshield, you should see the linkages for the wiper arms. make sure the linkages are all in-tact and nothing fell off. if the linkages are all good, see if you can move the passenger side wiper with your hand, if it moves freely or with little resistance check the nut/bolt that hols it on at the end of the wiper arm. see if the nut/bolt is loose. tighten if needed. also you can remove the nut/bolt and check the splines on the wiper arm where it presses onto the stud and see if they are wiped out.
