Make sure that's what you need because it's not a fun job.The wiper motor is under the dash above the gas pedal.Way up under the dash.Partial and/or full dash removal may be necessary.It depends on your skill level and determination! One heck of a great van to own!

Wipers does not work at all but you can here the motor trying

I guess the real question is,,, is it "trying" because the motor is too weak to move the wiper arms or is it trying because the wiper transmission is broken or otherwise defect ? You may be able to determine that by trying to manually assist the wipers by tugging gently on the arms. If the motor takes over and moves them then it most likely needs a new motor. If it doesn't move or moves very easily by hand with very little resistance it probably needs a new transmission. In either case, it's going to need a parts replacement.

Windshield wipers work on high only 03 malibue

Most likely the cause of this is because of the switch not operating properly. The wiper switch circuitry has 3 different diodes. One for high, one for low, and one between the 2 relays that run the motor. One relay turns the juice on and the other determines if it's high or low speed. On/off is relay 39, high/low is relay 40. You'll find them under the hood. Lift off the battery cover, then the fuse block cover. On the underside of the fuse cover is the location legend. The diode is #27. Check it for pass/no pass with a small light while unplugged from the circuit. Also try swapping the two relays with each other. This will determine if the problem is the switch.

My 2003 PT Cruiser has windshield wipers in the front for front windshield but also one windshield wiper in the rear for the back windshield. The wiper in the rear is operating fine but my front ones do...

More than likely you need to replace the front windshield wiper motor. You should unplug the motor and check the plug for voltage, checking each terminal as you change the speed selection on the switch. This should help determine if it is a power problem, switch problem, or motor problem.

I can turn on the wipers but they do not move and the motor has a grinding sound to it.

Well of course you could have stripped the worm grear in the wiper motor. In which case you would need a salvage yard replacement for the whole motor and gear assembly.

But are you sure the wiper arm did not must come loose on its shaft?
That usually goes first, and can easily just be retightened.
This is supposed to sort of act like a shear pin or clutch when the wipers get iced up or something.

2004 Cavalier Wiper Motor

hi, im not sure if they would have a separate motor each because most vehicles have a linkage bar that connects the two wipers to keep them in time with each other. without the wipers on, try manually rotating the paasenger side wiper (be gentle) if that moves easily and the drivers side does not even flinch, then it could be a broken linkage. hope i helped!

Removing/replacing wiper motor in '93 Ford Ranger

You don't have to put the wipers in an upright position You can take the arms completely off. It's very easy to do, when you are looking at the base of the wiper arm, on the side closest to the windshield, at the base, there is a spring-loaded tab. Lift the arm on its hinge to where the arm is now pointing away from the windshield, pull the tab and the wiper arm will slide right off. Now you can access the linkage joints easily. Hope that helps!

97 Sentra wipers won't wipe

they have grooves that are supposed to keep them in there. If not, you can place a little bit of silicone type glue to the grooved shaft. If it has no grooves, the only solution is to replace the motor with a known good one. If the wipers freeze during cold winters, some people don't wait to defrost the windshield, they turn on the wipers as soon as they turn on the car. this will cause damage to the wiper motor and or the wipers.doing this enough times the small grooves on the motor shaft will wear down.
