Ok, we got a ton of snow overnight last night. I let the van warm-up and wiped the loose snow from the windshield then turned on the wipers. After getting on the road all of the sudden I heard a loud pop/snap and the windshield wipers returned to their down position and stopped working. I can still hear the motor running and a popping noise. I am thinking the linkage broke or came undone. I can't seem to find a diagram or step-by-step on how to fix this. I also don't see the the wiper motor on the fire wall. I need to fix this asap, so help me out here boys.

Thanks Doc, I've never had this happen before. Should be an easy fix and looks like any possible parts are gonna be cheap. Just found out there are recalls on this 2011 Chevy Cargo Van regarding this situation.
