Front Wipers - not working


If you can move the wiper blades by hand, you probably broke-stripped the gear in the wiper motor.

I have audi 14 wiper blades are not working


It is possible that the linkage is jammed. Try turning the wipers on and gently pull the wiper arm by hand to see if it will move. It it starts to move you've found the problem.

If it doesn't move at all and the fuses are ok it is likely the wiper motor that has failed.

Front blades not working fuse ok


The motor is usualy central to the wiper arms and either bolted to the firewall or inside the plenum chamber at the bottom of the windscreen.If you can hear the motor you can find it, track it down by listening.Your probly right about linkage however if that is the case you should be able to move the wipers with your hand and they should move freely if they dont you may have other problems.

1983 dodge ram 4x4 wipers wont ever work


Will or can you move the wipers by hand? Does the wiper motor hum when it is turned on and had power to it,or have you tried attaching a wire directly to the motor from the positive side of the battery? If the wiper arm and linkage is free and the motor can be turned by hand while attached,if voltage is going to and from it, it will work or it(the motor) is defective.

remove your cowl panel right at the back of the hood and look at the linkage that attaches to the motor. It has probably come of or broken. Hope this solves your problem Merry Christmas! and God Bless!

Windshield wipers wont work


Can you here the motor running? If not maybe a fuse is blown or the wiper motor is bad.
Can you move the wipers by hand? If you can then the linkage either popped off or is broken.

Windshield Wipers


Under the cowl (it is a plastic piece that the windshield wipers come out of) are the wiper arms that connect to the wiper motor. There are plastic parts that hold the wiper arms to the wiper motor. Lots of time these plastic parts dry out and break and the wiper arm will fall off the wiper motor. I would bet if you tried to move one of the wipers by hand both of them would move with little resistance. This would tell me that the wiper arms are disconnected from the wiper motor. The parts to fix this are easy to get. I know the motormite HELP line of parts used to have the plastic bushings to fix this problem.
