2012 VW Passat - in cold weather wipers dont work


Can you getting into some place above 32f or 0c? If so do. Let it warm up and see if it helps. The grease maybe to thick in the transmission of the wipers two there could be ice or snow packed around the unit.
If it was doing it when it was warmer check the units ground.

Windshield wipers do not work. Car sat one day. Worked fine previously. 2004 Nissan Maxima. Had about 3" snow. No ice on car. Temp around 32 or 33 degrees. Brushed snow from car. Came off...


when you turn the wipers on do you hear any sound? If so, then you may have disconnected a ball joint in there behind the firewall - typically the top (black) panel (under the wipers/ at the back of the hood) comes off or you could find other access to inspect more thoroughly to be sure. If no sound, test the power to the wiper motor with a test light, if no power, check fuses, wiring, ground, etc.,
Best regards

Wiper motor starting making a noise (almost a grinding noise) next day when I turn on wipers they moved up about 2" and then totally stopped in place. Can't get them to budge. I also thought i noticed...


There is a motor above the firewall in the engine compartment.(Not easy to get at). To that motor there is a gear that attaches the motor to the wiper arms. Tighten that connection. You may want to try to turn the wipers on then off. Thiss will put the blades in what it thinks is the rest position. Other wise they may be out of wack. So with the wipers off loosen the drive gear force the wipers down all the way and then tighten.

Good luck.

see if the transmission arms for the wiper motor are moving when the wiper motor is on. The bolts that hold the arms to the motor may be loose or stripped out from the heavy know. The threads for these bolts are thin and don't take much to strip.

2000 Pontiac Montana with a wiper problem


Check the crank arm on the wiper motor. There is a bracket under the crank arm that has a small upward part on it that the bottom of the crank arm is supposed to stop on when its shut off.

Put the wiper in the pulse position and turn the key on. let the wipers sweep one time then turn off the key.

Look under the crank arm to see where it stopped. It should be no farther than 5 mm from the bracket stop. The stop is often times bent or worn out. You will need to replace the crank arm and the bracket in most cases.
