First you must diagnose this problem. In order to find out the cause of wipers stopping you can try follows:\015\0121. Carefully extract the wiper arms from their axles (two pieces). In some cases you need to use an extracting tool. Heed of the windscreen !!!\015\0122. Disassemble the plastic covers from the bottom of the windscreen.\015\0123. With the bonnet up you can start the engine, (transmission in "N" or "P" position and parking brake on). Now you must switch on the control lever of the wipers, and go to the engine compartment. If the wiper motor runs let the wiper motor running for a few minutes and switch off. Go to the step 4. If the wiper motor do not runs you must check first the electrical feeding of the motor. It is necessary to unscrew three bolts of the mechanism and disconnect the electrical coupling (difficult assurance). If the electrical feeding is OK you must replace the motor - steps 5, 6, 7. If not you must check electrical connections, the control switch of wipers and electric cables.\015\0124. Now you must check the two bearings of wiper mechanism with your hand.

For have enough space to manipulation the wiper motor together with their mechanism you must extract the plastic cover of the engine computer box, and extract also the box screws.

Now you can repair the bearings, replace entire wiper mechanism or replace the wiper motor. \015\012It is not very simply, but it works.\015\012Heed of the windscreen !!!\015\012Refit in reverse order.\015\012\015\012Please Rate my Response!
