You can usually avoid that by using a good quality winter mix washer fluid that resists freezing, making sure the wipers are cleared of ice before beginning the drive and using the defroster to keep the windshield warm. In extreme conditions you just need to pull over and manually clean the ice off by hand.(only do that where it's safe). There are also specially designed wiper blades that will also help a bit.

Windshield wipers stopped working with heavy snow cover

The windshield wiper circuit has an circuit breaker in it, under heavy load this breaker trips to protect the wiper motor, when the motor cools, the breaker resets automatically restoring proper wiper action.

The driver's side windshield paper does not function, the passenger's side works?

Hello: lift/remove cover from the lower end of the w/w arm (toward bottom of windshield) there should be a 13mm nut that attaches the arm to the transmission shaft. Use a 13mm box end and see if the nut is tight. If not tight position the arm in the proper position and tighten nut, re-install nut cover.

One thing that will help a lot is to remember to turn the defroster off before you get home. If you let the windshield cool and freeze while you run the wipers on a slow delay they won't freeze down. Guaranteed.

The other thing is to keep the area where the wipers park clear of snow and ice. Turn the key on, run the wipers until they're all the way up, turn the key off and get your plastic tool and dig that stuff out. Make sure there is somewhere for the water to drain.

Remove the wiper arm and check the serrated hub to see if it sheared a pin holding it to the shaft. If it is ok, then you may have a broken/loose part in the linkage. Good luck!

While the wipers are in the parked state, just loosen off (or remove) the wiper arm from the drive spigot and re-position the driverside wiper arm to the correct position.

Windshield wiper

Check to see if the wiper motor moves the passenger side. If so, You may need to tighten the nut that connects the arm to the motor. Mine was stripped out because or snow & ice. So, I went to home depot and found a lock washer to fit.
Presto.... Nick from DE
