SOURCE: windshield wipers make loud noise but dont move when turned on

Probably stripped the little splines where wiper arm attaches to pivot. Flip the cover up where arm attaches to pivot, and tighten nuts on there, but be careful not to go too far, its not hard to snap the pivot stud if you tighten too much. make sure wipers are off, in park position, and move arms to where they should be, then tighten. See if you still get loud noise after. If you do, somethings wrong under cowl, in the linkages or motor. You may be able to see something with flashlight or troublelight.

SOURCE: rear wiper not working, replaced the fuse, still nothing.

There are three possible points of failure; the motor, the parking switch, and finally the switch that turns it on.
Obviously, the motor is located in the hatch itself but also there will be a parking switch that supplies power to the motor after the user switch is turned off and until the blade is in the park position. The user switch is of course located on the dash or in a stalk on the steering column.
To find the culprit (and for future use around the home and cars), I recommend that everyone should own a cheap digital multimeter. They are available from Radio Shack and auto parts stores for under $20 US and if you have a Harbor Freight Tool store in your area, for under $10 US.
This will give you the means to check for voltage at the motor and/or continuity of it. You should be able to eliminate the items that are working in 20 or 30 minutes.    
These meters come with a simple Chinglish instruction sheet that will give you the basics in case you are not familiar with them.
You probably won't avoid opening up the inside panel(s) to gain access for your tests.

---
The wiper motor hopefully is ok, but if the wiper arms were not mounted at the right spot, it could have damaged the motor as it returned to the rest position, unfortunately.

If there is noise, the noise could be coming from the wiper arm joint being stripped out or the motor itself assuming that the ball joints under the hood and behind the firewall are still connected.

Check these items, and I'm sure you will get to the bottom of this.

Good luck on this repair.

Vauxhall meriva when put in gear power steering fails 2005 model


Check for proper tension on V-Belts or Serpentine Belt.
A little moisture from leak or oil on belt will make it slip especially when wheels are turned and more torque is placed on pulley.
My daughter's Ford truck was serviced and they added too much motor oil. It squirted out onto her belt and she couldn't steer it. After cleaning belt it worked fine.

Rain water leaking in drivers side vauxhall meriva


if this is a new shape meriva the problem is the wiper scuttle seal leaking water .it drips into the engine bay,onto the heater pipes and tracs into the cabin.Pour water onto the screen and look into the engine bay,just behind the engine and you will see it drip onto the heater pipes where they enter the bulkhead.It then tracs into the cabin and soaks the carpet.The problem is a foam seal on the scuttle panel when it should be a rubber one.One fix is to ensure that the seal where the heater pipes enter via the engine bay is dry and spray it and the pipes with underseal.Vauxhall are aware but dont have a solution?

2003 yukon rear wiper motor wont work makes loud noise and no movement even after i changed the motor is this a switch problem


If it makes noise when you turn it on, the switch is working. So whats making the noise. If you replaced the motor, there isnt much else. Is the wiper arm tight on the shaft?

Before you go through the time and hassle of removing the motor itself, spray some WD-40 or something similar on the shaft that goes to the motor...could be the weather seal is dried and squeaking.
