I was driving down the road the hood to my 2003 Nissan xterra flew up. My windshield wipers stopped working and its hard to open my hood. How do I pull the hood back forward?

There is 2 bolts on each hood hing loosen them and move the hood. As far as the wipers it sounds like the wiper linkage got bent.

Cold weather wiper problem

Dear joelgoodison,

Could be the Fuse!
Could be the Wiper Motor Burn't Out if Blades were frozen to windshield when turned on
Until you fix the problem you can buy RainX Wipe-On Glass Solution or Windsheild Washer Fluid which as unbelievable as it sounds will allow you to drive in the all but the worst downpours of rain without wipers!
I love the RainX Windsheild Washer Fluid and rarely use my wipers.
Check the fuses and try RainX and get back to me!
Hope this Helps!

Windsheild wiper Motor??

the wiper system has a series of linkages, they are located at the bottom of the windshield (under the plastic at the bottom of the windshield) there are pivots that connect the pieces together and one of them has likely worn out and disconnected itself from the system.....if you are handy it isn't a big job.......just remove the plastic cover at the bottom of the windshield(usually held in place by several screws and sometimes a few clips) and locate the failed part them replace it .Good Luck!
hope this helps! thanks for choosing FIX YA!
