    The actual arm is there, it just doesn't move. It looks like it's trying to, but doesn't.

    Yes, it's in its normal position

The arm for the other side has come off... it's usually held on with a C clip

The windshield wipers on my 2003 Sedona stopped working and you can hear a knocking noise every minute or so. they move freely by hand. the back wiper works fine.

You need to remove the front panel under the windscreen under the bonnet and check if wiper links are connected.

I have a 2007 Kia rio. The windshield washer is not working and I am wondering which fuse it is. The washer is not listed on the diagram inside the fuse box.

Probably the windshield wiper fuse supplys the voltagees for the washer .Does the washer opperate off the wiper switch?

2003 kia rio- water pumps

I would follow the mechanics recommedations. I think he's taliking about the cam and crankshaft seals. Yes the water pump should be replaced as well. The pump that sprays windshield washer fluid onto the windshield is called the windshield washer pump. The water pump is on the engine and pumps water (coolant/antifreeze) through the engine to the radiator and heater core.

My Kia 2003 rio front windscreen water not working

Take off the pipe at the pump then use the washer switch and see if the water sprays out. To check if the pump is working you will need someone to use the switch while you hold your hand on the pump you should feel or hear the pump working. If the pump is going but no water spraying blow back through it and try again. If it dosent work then you will probably need a pump.

2006 kia wipper works but stops in the middle of the windshield

It sounds like the the circuit board has gone bad and does not know where the base is any more so it will stop at the middle or the windshield. Auto Zone should have a new board if it's replaceable like the GM products. Good luck and hope this helps, In the mean time you can always turn your wipers on and pull the fuse out when it's at the down position so it's not up.
