Question about 2004 Volkswagen Golf
Common problem with Golf, the wiper linkages are partially seized on the spinldes. The spindles are the rods that stick up out through the plastic panel at the bottom of the windscreen and the wiper arms connect to them.
Disconnect the wiper linkage from the motor and try manually moving them but I think you will find that they are seized. You will need to completely remove the linkage assembly and clamp it in a vice and use a lubricant spray oil to work into the spindles. Either that or fit a new or good second hand linkage
