You may need a Wiper Transmission, if bushings are broken for the the linkage.

I have a 93 gmc suburban and the windshield wipers stopped working i can hear the motor buzzing and with it raining i really need them. what can i do

is the motor buzzing? or working? the linkage may be bad. the Wiper Circuit Boards were a real common problem. but usually, the wiper motor would not work, or the washer would not work, or when you turned the wipers off, they would still go. Sometimes you could grab the wiring connector at the wiper motor and tug or twist it, if it started working, replace the board, its a common part, the dealer or even a parts store may have them.

The windshield wipers have stopped working, i can hear the motor working when i turn them on, but they won't move! same for both front and back wipers! can someone give me step by step instructions to find...

If you have had ice or snow on the car then used the wipers they sometimes come lose at the base. the wiper arm has a cap at the bottom of it and a nut normally 13mm check to see these are tight first before going any further.

I would have said maybe the front ones have came off the runner bar inside but as both are not working its hard to say. there is a panel just under the front windsheild the wiper motor is in there have a look see if anything has snapped or came off.

hope this helps

Sometime the windshield wipers work and sometimes

It sounds like the wiper motor has a bad gear. Replace the motor and it should solve your problem.

Wiper motor and washer motor is one and the same..Replace the wipper motor. In 4x4 hi your turn and pull motion is one and the same and will give some resistance, however you might check your CV joints to make sure the are not damaged.
