Hello

My windshield wipers are not working properly. They will go up, but when they come back down they stop half-way, and you can hear the motor running, but they won't budge. I reset them, and start again with the same results. If I lift the blades off the windshield the wipers work perfectly, but as soon as I put them down again they stop working. In the down stroke.
One garage told me I needed a new motor, but when I took it in to another garage to get this done, they told me it wasn't the motor.
I am lost.
Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

Try tightening the nuts that hold the wiper arms to the wiper spindles. If they are tight, check the linkage that connects the wiper spindles to the wiper motor.
