It might be the motor has siezed. disconnect the linkage from the motor and turn wipers on if works then linkage at fault, if not then motor needs replacing.

If drivers wiper arm will not move by motor operation and can be easily moved by hand ( with wiper on or off ) suspect disconnected/broken linkage. If wiper arm will not move by motor and takes effort ( With wiper on ) by hand... suspect seized wiper pivot

Passenger Windshield Wiper Not Working


If it were the motor neither side would move. Chances are its the linkage.
You'll probably need to remove the panel under the windshield to access the linkage and check it out.

Replaced wiper linkage but wipers still dont work 1997 civic


both dead?
there are 2 wipers and 1 motor and simple linkage.
does the motor run?
does it make sound.
does it turn? (look at it)
if the motor runs, then make sure the linkage moves. does it?
if the linkage moves, then the spindle drives must turn , do they
if they turn the blade arm turns, do they not?

2006 hhr passenger side windshield wiper not moving but drivers side is fine??


First remove the complete passenger side wiper check and make sure splines on wiper are not stripped. If this is not the problem It could be a linkage bar from the wiper motor to the wiper off or disconected. Since both wipers share the same motor if one works the other should. Check this by removing both wipers and then "Cawl" (little black piece between the hood and windshield underneath the wipers) Underneath the cawl you should be able to see the windshield wiper motor, and linkage bar to both of the wipers. See if the bar is disconected from the passenger side. If it is than reconnect it. These are the only two possible scenarios.

Only one windshield wiper works the wiper arm is connected to the motor, but the drivers side wiper doesnt move at the same time, eventually causing the wipers to hit each other. They dont wipe in Sync....


The splined fitting is pressed into the linkage. The fit became loose so that side will not operate correctly no longer. You will need to remove replace the complete linkage

My driver side wiper is not moving but the passenger side is. It is a 1993 Mazda MX6 LS. Any ideas?


it seems the motor is working ok so it only leaves your linkage or the actual wiperarm mounting to fault.remove the retaining nut on the drivers side wiper arm usually a 12 or 13 mm spanner.once removed turn wipers on and keep hands clear, look at the drivers side spindle,if it turns when the other wiper moves your linkage is ok and you need a new arm, if it dosn't move then its your linkage,hope this helps!

Driver side wiper does not move; passenger side wiper crosses over it


In view of the answer from jchaffcom I feel that if there is a Hex on the end of the Wiper Arm the Hex Nut needs Tightened. I have a 2004 Silverado and this is what happened to it. Simply tightening the Nut solved my problem. Try it and get back to me with the results whether good or bad.

Windshield wipers not working


there are little tabs at the end of the arm where it attaches to the wiper trans. if you bend the arms up at the hinge and swing those tabs out the arms will stay up (a small screw driver can be used to move the tabs if they are stuck. A 1/8 screwdriver is a good choice, $4 at sears). once those tabs are out and the arms are holding themselves up just pull. you may need to rock them back and forth a bit but they should just pull off.

To remove the wiper motor itself:
1993 Aerostar/Ranger/Explorer
  1. Turn the wiper switch on. Turn the ignition switch on until the blades are straight up. Then, turn ignition off to keep them there.
  1. Disconnect battery and wiper motor electrical connector.
  1. Remove the right wiper arm and blade.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  1. Remove the right pivot nut and allow the linkage to drop into the cowl.
  1. Remove the linkage access cover, located on the right side of the dash panel near the wiper motor.
  1. Reach through the access cover opening and unsnap the wiper motor clip.
  1. Push the clip away from the linkage until it clears the nib on the crack pin. Then, push the clip off the linkage.
  1. Remove the wiper linkage from motor crank pin.
  1. Remove nut and ground strap.
  1. Remove three attaching nuts from wiper motor. Remove the motor.

My wipers are very slow on all speeds and keep sticking


Common problem with Golf, the wiper linkages are partially seized on the spinldes. The spindles are the rods that stick up out through the plastic panel at the bottom of the windscreen and the wiper arms connect to them.
Disconnect the wiper linkage from the motor and try manually moving them but I think you will find that they are seized. You will need to completely remove the linkage assembly and clamp it in a vice and use a lubricant spray oil to work into the spindles. Either that or fit a new or good second hand linkage

Refitting windscreen wiper linkage


Good evening Kah2110,

I assume you have replaced the linkage by now and all is fine?

I have freed a sticking spindle (driver side) but now find I can't seem to get the wipers arms positioned properly - did you find that there is a sequence/procedure to follow?

Many thanks

Please reply to gharborough@aol.com and not this email addresss.
