Sound like the motor gears are being stripped. Try WD-40 and lube all parts. If that doesn't work replace the motor.

Our front windshield wiper has quit working. it swings freely if you move it by hand. how do you repair it?


Remove the black plastic cowling that goes around the wipers in front of the windshield and behind the hood. Then check to see if the rod linkage that operates the wipers has come off, or time to replace wiper motor, but most likely the linkage has come apart.

My windshield wipers will not work but i hear the motor trying to work. what does this mean? are they totally broke or is there a simple fix?


Sounds like the link rod has popped off or the wiper arm nuts need tightened. When the wipers freeze to the windshield and you start the wipers to clear the snow this will either strip out the wiper arms or pop the linkage rod off. Always pull the wipers away from the windshield before you start the wiper motor in cold weather to be sure they are not frozen to the windshield. Ok how to repair. Grab the wiper arms and see if they freely move in thier normal pattern with power off. Do they move independantly of each other ? If your lucky the nut holding the arms to the pivot just needs tightened. At the base of each arm is a black cover you have to pry up th see the nut. If not remove the wiper arms and inspect to see if they are stripped out. If they are stripped out bad enough you may have to replace them. If not then the linkage has popped off beneath the drainage grill. To see the link rods move look down thru the grill with the wiper motor running and the wiper arms off and you may see the rod flopping around. Now pry the plastic grills off, with the power off, left side first to get to the rod. Look to see if the plastic retainer in the end that fell off is still ok if so just line it up and give it a smack to pop it back on to the ball stud. If the shaft that is installed onto the motor is spinning but not moving the rod the motor must be replaced. Oopen hood and remove three bolts holding the motor to the firewall to remove it. Just reverse the process to reinstall. Thanks for asking at Fixya.com.

Ford f150 windshield wiper bushing diagram. windshield wipers are not working , motor is going and the wiper arms will move freely when truck is not on


sounds like a loose nut. there are nuts that hold the wiper arms on, they may be under a cover but theyre at the base of the wiper arm. also there's a nut that holds the wiper linkage onto the wiper motor. if you can move the wipers independently, it's the nuts connecting the wiper arms.if you move one arm and the other moves with it, it's the nut holding the linkage to the motor.

When wipers are on they do not move but you can


If you can move the wipers freely all the way across the windshield then they have either come unhooked from the wiper motor aor the transmission in the wiper motor is stripped. You will have to take the motor off the firewall to check because they are attached on the back of it. Normally the wiper arms are attached to the wiper motor by a nut or sometimes a clip. If that is intact the transmission is bad and the wiper motor will need to be replaced. If the nut is loose or missing tighten it up and check the wipers before you put it all back together to be sure they work. Use a lock washer if you can do this to keep the nut from coming off again. Hope this helps.

Windshield Wipers dont work and can be moved freely by hand


sounds like wipers arm is not securely attached to shaft that is attached to wiper motors. They can strip out and you can either us JB weld to put them on or get new ones or junk yard ones.

Windshield wipers move only inches


The arm is probubly loose on the motor...I had the same problem...open the vent area below the windshield under the hood ...remove the drivers side wiper arm and see if the motor is completely turning...if so check the connector arm is on and tight..the pivot ball may have worn oblong...or it just loosened up...pretty easy fix

Windshield wiper arms move all ove rthe windshield incosistently


turn your wipers on and turn the key off when the are about 1/4 to half way up on the winshield and try to pull them one way or the other and see if they move
It really sounds like the wiper transmission arm has gotten stripped the only to fix it is to replace trasmission arm assembly you can get them from your local junk yard cheap!
generally where wiper arms push on there is an additiona part you will have to pull off in order to change the wiper arm assembly
