The wiper rod have come off the motor assembly. you need to pull the panel on outside below widsheild to see the wiper motor and arms. there is a retaining clip that holds the arms to the motor. the clip wears out sometimes.pulling the panels not bad, but when you put the arms back onto the wiper motor,make sure you get the wipers back into time so they won't hit each other while working. that can be frustrating.if you need further assistance please post yor problem to fixya.com

SOURCE: windshield wipers don't move, but hear motor running

check the nuts on the wiper arms and make sure they are tight. If the nuts are tight then a linkage on the wiper transmission probably came loose or broke. You'll have to pull some cowling off to access it.

SOURCE: Windshield Wipers

Under the cowl (it is a plastic piece that the windshield wipers come out of) are the wiper arms that connect to the wiper motor. There are plastic parts that hold the wiper arms to the wiper motor. Lots of time these plastic parts dry out and break and the wiper arm will fall off the wiper motor. I would bet if you tried to move one of the wipers by hand both of them would move with little resistance. This would tell me that the wiper arms are disconnected from the wiper motor. The parts to fix this are easy to get. I know the motormite HELP line of parts used to have the plastic bushings to fix this problem.

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Expedition: Rear Wiper won't work.

Don't make this more difficult than it is. One of the gears inside the wiper motor is made out of bad quality plastic, and wont last very long. Replace it with a used one is just a wast of money, get a brand new one.

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

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.

Wipers not moving but you can hear the wiper motor running


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.

My wiper blades are not moving


If indeed you can hear the wiper motor running but the wipers are not moving, there is a nut under the pivot point cap that has to be tightened. If you don't hear the motor running than you'll have to check the power to the wiper motor and the fuses. Good luck. Dana

I have a 1990 Dodge Caravan, and I replaced the windsheild wiper motor and can hear it running, but the wiper blades are still not working; is there anything else that I'm not checking?.....


hi if your can hear it running and all the arms are attatched from the motor to the wiper arm assembley then look at the main arm that comes from the motor where it is bolted on see if its tighted up if so turn your wipers on and watch the main arm nut which is fastened to the motor see if the nut if moving but not the arm as it will be held by splines and these wear off if the nut is not moving and you are sure the motors running then you need to get a new motor
