Usally the motor is under the bonnet and the arms are in the front air intake in front of the windshild. Sedans are difficult to get out and need to be timed when replaced. I hope this helps.

Wipers problem on 2014 grand scenic. The left one stops in upright position whilst the other seems to work

That would be either a loose/stripped connection where the wiper arm attaches to pivot, or broken linkage

How to fix wiper arm on driver side not working

Remove the trim from the wiper arm so it is possible to see the retaining nut and spindle. Operate the wipers and check if the spindle and nut are moving. If yes then the nut is loose or the wiper arm needs replacing.

If not the wiper linkage has probably become disconnected. This often indicates the linkage is worn or the wipers have been started while the blades are frozen to the windscreen.

In the latter case the wiper linkage will have to be examined which is sometimes fairly simple and sometimes complex and awkward needing the removal of quite a lot of bodyfittings.

You know it sounds like a break in the linkage as the wiper motor will not usually let you freely move the wiper arms yourself. Generally there is an arm attached to the motor which in going around and around makes a side to side action in the wiper linkage. Without any more info I would suspect a failure in the ball joint connection between the wiper motor arm and the linkage. On a car that old most likely you should look around for a replacement used linkage on eBay or Craigslist. Once obtained, get yourself a repair manual or search on youtube for a video on how to remove and replace the linkage. there are many folks selling repair manuals on CD for about 10 bucks on eBay.

One windscreen wiper stopped working on my mx-5. It's not moving at all.

The wiper arm could have come loose from the driving shaft. Lift it off the screen and see if it mooves backwards and forwards freely. Lift the cover at the bottom of the wiper arm and see if the nut is loose. If it is tighten it and hope that the splines aren't worn off the wiper arm and the shaft. If the wiper arm and the shaft are well attached, one of the linkage points might have come loose or one of the shafts might have broken. It will be obvious. Before you start stripping plastic covers to get to the motor, run the wipers with the arms off the windscreen and listen out for odd noises.

Trying to change windshield wiper motor

If you take off the wiper blades, then remove the plastic covering under the windscreen, the motor is underneath it. All it will be is two maybe three bolts and an electrical connector.

Refitting windscreen wiper linkage

Good evening Kah2110,

I assume you have replaced the linkage by now and all is fine?

I have freed a sticking spindle (driver side) but now find I can't seem to get the wipers arms positioned properly - did you find that there is a sequence/procedure to follow?

Many thanks

Please reply to and not this email addresss.

Many thanks
