My 2005 Ford FreeStyle (AWD) Front wipers quit working...don't even hear a sound of the motor attempting to operate...wiper washer/sprayer operates fine. Rear wiper system operates.
What is wrong? Do I need replace the wiper motor? If so,how? Thanx

Pull the cowl cover off in front of the wind shield, put tape at the edges so u don't screw up your paint, under the cowl u will find the wiper transmission, it may have come loose from the motor, this is based on the fact u say the wiper motor sounds like it is running, if i assmed wrong let me know

Wiper not working


Sounds like you damaged the gear drive that operates the wiper arms, time for new wiper motor assembly is my guess. Don't use the wipers to brush off snow, very bad idea, the drive gears are plastic and on this old dog very brittle from age.

My windshield wipers wont work.


It Sounds Like, Either The Arms Are Loose ,If You Can Hear Something Moving Behind The Dash,
Or The Linkages Are Seized ,If The Motor Just Hums No Movement Heard,In Which Case Try Spraying Q 20 On The Linkage And Try Moving The Wiper Arms By Hand To Get It Going Again,
If Not The Motor May Just Be Burn;t Out.

The windshield wipers to my Ford focus stopped working today. They worked for a little while & then stopped in the up position. You can hear the motor working but they don't move. You can move them...


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.

When i turn on the windshield wipers, they don;t move. All I hear is a clicking sound


Under the wiper arms you will find a wiper transmission that consists of a series of linkages that attach the wiper arms to the motor. This is where you will find your problem. Remove the wiper arms and the panel under them for inspection.
