Either the motor is bad, or the ball joints for the arms that move as the motor turns are disconnected underneath the hood/ventilation firewall area.

Wiper stopped suddenly on 04 Ford Focus can still hear motor thou


If the wipers are not working but you can hear the motor, there is one of two problems. The wiper pivots are seized or the wiper linkage is disconnected.Can you move the wipers by hand with the wipers in the off position? If so, the linkage is disconnected. Can you move the wipers by hand with the wipers in the on position by using force? If so, suspect seized wiper pivots

The wiper motor runs, but the wipers wont work.


Can you move the wipers by pulling on them? If you can and they easily move, the wiper linkage is disconnected. If you can hear the motor run and the wipers are inoperable, suspect a seized wiper pivot

My windshield wipers wont work.


It Sounds Like, Either The Arms Are Loose ,If You Can Hear Something Moving Behind The Dash,
Or The Linkages Are Seized ,If The Motor Just Hums No Movement Heard,In Which Case Try Spraying Q 20 On The Linkage And Try Moving The Wiper Arms By Hand To Get It Going Again,
If Not The Motor May Just Be Burn;t Out.

Windscreen wipers on my renault clio have stopped working i can hear motor when i turn them on but wipers do not move


If you can hear the wiper motor running but have no wiper movement, it is quite likely the linkage has failed. It will be necessary to gain access to the wiper motor to determine what repairs are necesary

MAZDA323 FAULTY WIPERS


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.

I have a 1996 honda accord and my wipers will not work how do i know if its the wiper motor or not?


To check the fuse is always a good start. But also ,with the engine not running and the Key in the on position, turn the wipers on and listen for the wiper moter. You may hear the wiper motor running but the wipers not working ,they could have come disconnected at the motor or in the linkage. Physically move the wipers, if they move freely with no resistants, that would indicate a disconnection in the linkage or at the motor, in my opinion.

Turn the wipers on, you can hear the motor run but the wipers don't move. this is on a 1997 buick custom.


The wiper motor is connected to the wipers via a series of rods which are attached to each other with ball joints. It sounds like the one at the motor has come off. You just have to pop it back on. Run your wipers with the hood open so that you can see where the motor is. The rod that is hanging down looking lost will be the one you want.

Does the wiper motor run? If you can hear the wiper motor run, the wipers arms may have disconnected from the wiper motor,you will have to remove the wiper arms,and the plastic cover to access the wiper motor,and check for damaged parts.If your wiper motor does nothing at all, you probably blew a fuse do to the resistance on the arms,refer to your owners guide for fuse panel, and fuse locations. hope this helps
