My car has a manual transmission.
Hello, Since you can hear the wiper motor working when turned on, it sounds like the mechanical linkage for the windshield wipers has failed in some fashion. This failure could be in the wiper motor transmission, or in the mechanical linkage proper - broken link, or stripped splines where the wiper arms attach to the shafts which rotate them. For a closer inspection, I would recommend a windshield wiper system inspection by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
