Question about 1998 Buick Century
Can move driver wiper manually, but will not move with motor
Yes. Immediately in front of your windshield is a panel about 3 or 4 inches wide and that panel, which is the same color as your car, goes from one front fender across to the other one.
That panel, which has many vent holes or louvres in it, also has 2 holes for your wiper arms and blades, where they attach.
That panel will come off, sometimes you have to remove the whole hood of the car to get it off.
(You have to take both wiper arms & blade assembly off first.)
You will then find the linkage from the wiper motor to the driver's wiper arm/blade is disconnected.
(The wiper motor is about the size of your fist, and has a few wires attached to it.)
Probably a plastic bushing has fallen apart on the connecting link.
You will need to get a new or good used connecting link and attach it.
