The motor is electronic and as long as current flows, the motor will always rotate. The same is also true with the windshield wiper motor. It has a a gear mounted at it's tip. Since the motor never starts, stops & n rotate again, the circular motion is converted via a rack & pinion assembly. So the gears, which are usually made of plastic,HDPE, tend wear out fast. This in turn is attached to the wipers which again exhibit to & fro motion.
Thus you might have to change entire assembly because plastic gears can't be bought & attached and maintained separately.........sodeep

My 97 plymouth voyagers wipers dont move but I can hear the motor


if you hear the motor then you will have to check the wiper transmission linkage to see if it has come apart. you will have to remove the wiper arms and wiper cowl. the component that the motor sits in. sometimes the clips break that hold the linkage to the motor.

Check the wiper arms are properly connected to the mechanism,that protrudes from the actual motor...these normaly have a tooth like system and therefor if the wiper arms are not connected properly then the wiper motor will run but the wipers wont move.....also check the wiper cross arm mechanism(located under the bonnet)as these are normaly on a push fit ball and could be worn and disengaged.

Windsheild wiper wont move


Check to see if the nut is tight on the wiper down at the bottom, secondly turn the wipers on and put your ear down by the wipers to see if you can hear the motor moving. If you hear the motor moving the arms under the plastic sheathing have seperated. Try the nut first see if that fixes your problem then try the rest.

My windshield wipers stopped working, but i can hear something come on when i cut them on, but they dont move... i dont even know how to get to the wiper motor to even check it out! car is extra...


I am not sure on this specific vehicle but the wiper motor on all cars connects to linkage to convert the motor energy to the wipers. Most likely what happened if you here the motor moving is the linkage came loose from the motor. This is usually an easy fix once you find the motor it is usually on the drivers side fire wall up high under the hood.

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.
