Back windshield wiper stuck

The back windshield wiper is stuck upright. It acts like it's froze solid in that position. Very Annoying

    Checked the fuse, Is the motor right there where the wiper is? I'm not a car person (just a mom trying to make a living, so have to do what I can myself) But if it's the motor, can I order it on line and replace it myself? Not sure how to check the relay?

Did you check the relay?
The Fuse?
After that it could be the motor.

    ok Look in all fuse panels for anything pertaining the back wiper. The relays are usaully a silver or black square.

    you can fix this yourself. It is located in the rear panel right where the arm enters the vehicle.

Wipers get stuck in the upright position when they are turned off.

The wire part contacts are defective, you will need to replace the wiper motor in most cases to correct this. Before buying or replacing any parts have a VW experienced tech look at the problem.

Mercedes c230 windshield wiper starts on its own

Car has rain sensing windshield.Most likely you have the wiper on/off level in the intermittent position,which turns on the sensor. When the sensor detects moisture or even dust sometimes. It turns on wipers. Just make sure the wipers are off and not in the intermittent position.

the wirpers are connected to a shaft. the shaft is connected to a motor. The shaft must have turned and wipers were stuck and didn't move. So you will need to pull of each wiper arm and reposition with wipers turned off.

Windshield wipers stuck upright when off

This is a commoon problem with what is called the "Park pawl stop". The tab is most likely bent and needs to be re-aligned, then the wipers need to be re-timed. This re-timing can be a little difficult, although the re-aligning of the tab is failry simple.

Whindshield wipers stuck in a vertical position

This is an easy fix. Likely ice got on your windshield and froze your wipers to the glass then when turned on moved out of position. Take the cover off the base of the wipers and loosen the bolts. Put them down all the way and tighten. When wipers are turned on when frozen to glass the gears want to move but cant and loosens at the base. Please let me know if this does not help and will look into it further but this is probably it. Thanks
