SOURCE: Wiper arm not moving

Check the splines on the post where the wiper are mounts and make sure they are not rounded off. If they are intatct, remove the cowl (sheetmetal between the hood and windshield) and check the mechanical linkages that connect the wiper arms together

I have 2009 Chevy equinox and my wipers donot want to move but you can hear the motor moving inside what is the problem

Sounds like maybe a stripped gear or broken linkage. You may be able to remove the plastic covering the linkage at the base of the windshield to inspect for issues. This may also require removing the wiper arms.
If I had to guess, I'd say bad gearbox. Linkage should be pretty tough.

Wipers not working

Either the linkage has come loose(most are held in place with plastic caps) or the wiper motor arm has stripped. If you can see the linkage is moving, then the wiper arms are stripped.

Wipers will not move, makes noise and there is power to the motor. Motor was replaced. Someone told me that the arms probably moved to far and are now stuck, how do I fix this?

    • Nut cover
    • Nut from the wiper arm
    • Wiper arm

To Install:
  1. Install or connect the following:
    • Secure the wiper arm with the nut.
      1. Tighten to: 17 ft-lb (23 Nm)
    • Nut cover
Rear To Remove:
  1. Put the wiper arm in the park position.
  2. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • The washer hose from the connector
    • The cap from the wiper arm
    • The nut from the wiper arm
    • The wiper arm from the wiper motor shaft

To Install:
  1. Install or connect the following:
    • The wiper arm on the wiper motor shaft in the park position with the wiper arm resting on the park ramp
    • The nut on the wiper arm
      1. Tighten the nut. Torque to: 17 ft lbs (23 nm)
    • The cap on the wiper arm
    • The washer hose on the connector

The wiper motor hopefully is ok, but if the wiper arms were not mounted at the right spot, it could have damaged the motor as it returned to the rest position, unfortunately.

If there is noise, the noise could be coming from the wiper arm joint being stripped out or the motor itself assuming that the ball joints under the hood and behind the firewall are still connected.

Check these items, and I'm sure you will get to the bottom of this.

Good luck on this repair.

Driver side windshield wiper, does not work, after a long cold night, it first moved slow, then stop moving altoghter. I can move it by self, will not move with the other wiper.

The wiper arm stripped out. pop the cover off the base of the wiper then take the nut off. You should use a small 2 jaw puller or even a well placed prybar to force it off. Take a look at the base and the arm to see if one or both of these stripped the splines out.

Rear Windscreen wiper not working Seat Ibiza 2003

smonahan, The rear wiper fuse is actually a circuit breaker. It will reset itself.
Your wiper arm has probably stripped were it attaches to the motor shaft. You can check by trying to move the wiper arm with your hand, if it moves back and forth, its stripped. A new wiper arm will be needed.
Try it and let me know.
