My windshield wipers will not work. I can hear the motor but they only move about an inch and then stop completely.
My car has 140000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
It could be that the wiper arms are loose on the shaft. It happens a lot if you have turned on your wipers when there is ice or snow on the windshield. If you grab a wiper and can move it by hand then that is likely your problem. The wiper arm will have a plastic cap on the joint that you can lift up and there will be a nut underneath. Tightening that nut may be all that you need to do. If that doesn’t help, then contact YourMechanic. They will send a technician to your home or office to check out your wiper problem and let you know what is the solution.
