Default The wipers on my 97 Honda Civic Hatchback have stopped working?

When I turn on the wipers you can still hear the motor working but there is no movement. Is there any way I can fix them without going to a mechanic?

You should probably ask your mommy for help.

Hi I had a sim. problem once after I put new wipers in on a 98 Jetta VW. Make sure wipers are in all the way and correctly, sorry I guess you know more about this than a girl. Also I think there is a wire from your wipers to under your hood. Check both ends of that, it worked on my car. If all else fails take it in and let the pros do it, of course the $ is most likely unreal as it always is for serviceGoodluck

find motor for wiper. it is possible the cam/arm came off the motor. have never heard of that happening but it is possible. u should be able to see motor when u open hood. it is up close to the passenger compartment. good luck, keep your greasy side down. if motor is bad, head to junk yard.
