Default 1991 Integra wipers stopped working!

I turned them on and they froze in the up position, I then checked fuses,
ok. I then turned them on and they seemed to move and stop again. I can hear
the wiper motor working but no movement? Anyone know what the layout is or
have a schematic of the setup? Also, where is the darn motor under the hood?
Thanks for your time!

If I had to guess, I would say you might just need to tighten the nuts
on the arms. Lift the hood and you'll see them. I think they're 10 or
12mm nuts. If not, you may have damaged the wiper motor or have a
faulty switch.

Check the nuts on the arms first then check the motor under the hood on
the firewall (pass. side) to see if it's getting power. If it ins't
getting power, you likely have either an ope/short in the circuit
wiring or a bad/failing switch or fuse.

This shoul be an easy one. Start with the easy stuff first and go from
there. These motors are very strong - I'd be suprised if it were dead.

Thanks for the response. I do have power to the motor, I can hear the motor
working when I turn on the wipers, the arms are loose, like they are
disconnected? Ill check the nuts next...stay tuned...JR

Default Re: 1991 Integra wipers stopped working! UPDATE

I checked the nuts @ each arm, they are tight, is it possible the motor
burned out just enough to stop turning the arms, or is there another area to
look at? Thanks for the help! JR

It could be a broken linkage/gear from the arms to the motor.

Default Re: 1991 Integra wipers stopped working! UPDATE

I remember having the same problem on a Honda Prelude a few years ago.
All I can remember is that I had to buy a part of de linkage from the
dealer and spent a couple of hours to fix it .
