Under the bottom of the outside windshield you will see a grate with slots that let you look down inside. One of the arms connected to the wiper motor must have come loose. Might be as simple as a clip keeping the arm on slipped off and then the arm too. There should be screws to remove the grating in view either if you lift the hood and look on the firewall or even on top on the corners of the grating. You can take that off and get into the wiper motor area. Let me know if this helped and ppppplease leave me a good thumbs up for the effort. I need to keep my score up. Thanks, The Raz Shack

Cannot get the wind shield wiper motor back in the wind shield wiper stops in the middle of the wind shield


this is normally caused by a bad wiper motor or binding of the wiper gears and linkage arms.
check to see if the linkage arms are tight and not loose. also try and lube up the pivot points.
another thing to check is to make sure you have 12 volts to the heater.

Wind shield wipers stop in center of window


Sounds like a linkage (wiper transmission) problem. But, put an external ground wire to the wiper motor first and see if they work then.
Also many wipers have a fastening nut on the wiper arm where it attaches to the stub that goes through the body. These may have loosened and gone out of adjustment. If so, loosen them and re-position arms, then tighten them down.
