So I turn on my windshield wipers and although I can hear the motor slightly, the wipers themselves don't move. It doesn't give me any windshield wiper fault signals. Anyone experience this before? Is this fixable by a handy person? I'd like to give it a crack myself =) Right now I just drive in the rain...rainex is good stuff :rofl:

Sounds like the nut on the wiper assembly to the wiper drive motor has come loose.

I just went thru that..Tech Freak has a good point...I ended up with a used wiper motor and assembly to cure the problem but mine showed the fault. Make sure you set the wipers first before you re-tighten it back down or it wont work.
