SOURCE: windshield wipers groan

1. It's hard to know what you mean by groan. Is there a problem with the wiper motor or is it just noise from the wipers riding over the new glass?
I hope the wiper mechanism was not damaged during installation of the new glass.

2. I will assume it's just the wipers on the glass. If that is the case you should first try:

a. Clean the glass with a strong glass cleaner and water and flush well.
Dry off with paper towel/ Do this a couple of times.

b. Carefully check that there is no damage to the wiper arms cause by the windscreen replacement people.

c. Replace the wiper rubbers with new inserts. Make sure you get the correct item for your vehicle.

3. If you are still getting the "groan" you will need to investigate problems with the wiper mechanism/motor. Your vehicle should still be under its new car warranty. However any damage caused by the windscreen people cannot be claimed on warranty of course.

SOURCE: On a chevy venture one windshield wiper is moving

Well, having just dealt with this on our 2000 Lesabre... this is an unfortunate fate for windshield wiper setups...
Basically the knurling on both the male & female portions of the wiper arm's pivot point have worn clean off, or are very close to gone.
----
The following solution is my 'get it working now' fix... it's not as official and/or costly as replacing the whole wiper linkage... not to mention how difficult it may be in pulling apart the necessary components to first get at the wiper linkage, and then actually removing it from the vehicle(serious pain on some vehicles)... and then of course installing a new one, assuming you can even find/afford one through the local stealership.
----
What I did, which has worked so far:
First, get access to the nut which holds the wiper arm to the pivoting point; there should be a cover or cap which will remove to expose this nut I talking about. Be sure the wiper arm is in a position that you want it in... then tighten that thing(the nut) if it's not already tight - a relative "really tight" is recommended, but do stop short of jumping on the ratchet or wrench. To verify tightness, check that wiper arm for wobble, i.e. semi-gently move/pivot it in all sorts of directions, to see whether it is actually sitting tight up against the pivoting stud that you just tightened the nut down against. I've seen the female/upper part of the wiper body lift & shift around which makes tightening things a bit of a fine tuning process until you manage to get the wiper body low & seated fully onto the pivoting stud part.
The next part is to more surely "bond" the wiper arm to the stud that it pivots on(and causes it to pivot too). Just make certain the wiper arm is tightened down in the position you want it to be(low/at-rest alike to the other wiper on the windshield) before proceeding
You'll very likely need a super hard drill bit to have success in drilling through the portion of the wiper arm that sits around the pivot-point/stud and into the stud itself some distance.
I'd suggest an 1/8" carbide drill bit(likely not available at your local hardware store, and I don't recall if anything less-hard will work to drill
that stud) acquirable via Use-Enco.com
Once a hole is drilled through the outer wiper arm metal(sometimes even as soft as aluminum, but regularly mild steel), and a good ways into the very hard pivoting stud material, get yourself an 1/8" diameter roll-pin/friction-pin in the 1/2" to 5/8" range and tap/hammer it into your newly made drill-hole. The roll/friction pin is designed to fit tight inside of an 1/8" hole so you won't find it coming out on its own(unless you didn't drill the hole deep enough, or wobbled the drill bit while drilling thus making the hole larger than 1/8").
Roll-pins, like wipers, are typically black so not much should be seen from any casual glance or typical once-over of the vehicle.
The fix should turn out to be(in every ideal sense) an easily disappearing, effective long term fix.
I hope that goes well for you.

If you can hear the motor and nothing is happening, the wiper linkage may have failed.

I have a 2012 Chevy Malibu and my windshield wipers just stopped working. When I turn on the switch I can hear the motor going; but the arms won't move . Please help


sounds like the linkage came unhooked under the hood. Sometimes you can just pop it back on other times if its broke you will have to install a new linkage.

The windshield wipers on my 1999 Chevy Malibu no longer work. It's very cold and snowy here. They made a jerky motion at first and now no longer work. Thank you.


I would say that the wiper motor arms have jumped off and you have to take the rill right under your windshield off and snap the wiper motor arm back on to the wiper motor and then put the grill back on there and then you are all set to use them again.

Malibu wipers problems


I suspect a retainer came loose from the arm to the wiper transmission, you will need to get at the wiper transmission and reattach the art to the pivot.
