SOURCE: steps for replacing wiper motor for 1998 VW Jetta

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.

Most likely cause is the motor or the arm bushes are dry and seizing ,the bushes on the bottom of the arms where they go to the linkage ,try some a oil can with engine oil in and trickle some down soak down to the bushes with time and this may cure it ??

I have a 2000 vw jetta, when i turn on wiper blades i can hear the motor but the blades are not engaged


Wiper motor arm disengaged or slipping on drive shaft.

Wiper arms slipping on splines at pivot point of wiper arm.,,,more likely.

Wipers are held to drive splines with a 10mm nut.

Make sure wipers are in in 'parked' position buy turning on ignition and making sure wiper switch is OFF.

Turn off ignition.

Pry off the black round plastic cover off the arm where it attaches at the splines. ( Drive splines on lower windshield cowl.)

Tighten nut/s.

2000 VW jetta VR6 windshield wipers wont work


first try the fues box see if you have a blown fues, next if you put your wipers on can you hear the motor running for them? if you can the linkage has poped off from the motor, its a bit awkward to get it back on and no gaurentee that it will saty on, you might have to replace linkage, or, it might be the cogs on the actual wiper arms have splayed and are now smooth so they dont grip to move, you can take them off by the nut on the arm , get a can (coke can or simular) cut a rectangle out of it the hight and width if the cog, rap it round the cog, (make sure it does not overlap on the ends) and force the arm back into place and then do the nut up, this is just a short quick fix if that is the case you will have to replace the motor, also you can check the relay to the motor in the fues box, give it a tap a couple of times it might work again if not replace it...hope you find these sugestions helpful

Power to headlights fan and wipers intermitantly cuts out


sounds like it is a lower ignition switch problem. The upper ignition switch is where you insert the key, The lower is an electrical switch that causes this issue. This car probably has air bags, if so, not recommended for an unlicenced technician.

Yes, start calling junk yards for the whole wiper arm or order the arm at your vw dealer, you will not find just the spring. Good Luck
