Took the car to a local garage and the tech found a loose connecting rod on the gear box of the windshield wipers.
The tech was very nice and repaired the wipers and didn't charge for the repair.
The tech has made a young lady very happy and has gotten him a new customer for her future auto repairs.
This is so refreshing to find a auto repair shop that shows good will and does not take advantage of a customer.
Thanks to you and your web site for your postings and concern.

Hi - had the same problem with mine last year - turned out to be a sticky relay. You can probably hear it clicking with each wipe. These are well over £20 from the dealer, around £5-10 from a breaker, or if you like a challenge (like me) you can unclip the plastic cover off the relay and lightly dress the contacts with a nail board! Good luck.

SOURCE: Wiper don.t work
Remove the wiper arms amd the panel between the hood and the windshield. There are teflon bushings on the actuater arms that wear out, they are cheap and available from the dealer but can be tricky to install because of the limited access.

had the same problem on my 97. your going to have to take off the cowl covers. to do that youll have to remove your wiper arms.
where the arms connect to the car there should be a little circle centercap looking thing, that just pops off with a flathead screw driver. theres a bolt behind that, match it up with the correct socket and remove that. put the arms in the up position as if your cleaning your windsheild, this releases the tension of the arms on the shaft there sitting on. then simply wiggle them loose until they come off.
the cowl covers are the black covers between the back of the hood and the windshield, there should be a few plastic rivets holding them in place, drill those out which is very simple doesnt take a strong drill, then remove the weather strip from the base of them underneath the hood which will just pull out, then remove the covers and youll be able to see the motor and all linkages. mine broke where the motor connects to the links in the middle. get the part from the dealer not a wrecker, reason being is that these cars had a recall on them for a bad seal, what happens is that water gets in the balljoint like seal forces the grease out and causes the links to seperate. the dealer has the corrected parts the wrecker may not. vice grip needle nose pliers work best for attaching the links, then install everything the reverse of removal, youll also need to get replacement plastic rivets for those cowl covers its cheaper to get those from car quest should only cost you 2 bucks. best of luck, takes about 1 1/2 hrs to do depening on where the link broke.
if the links arent broke your motor is probably bad.
