Post VW Jetta 2000 - windshield wiper dont work
Hi I have a 2000 VW Jetta, and the windshield wipers dont work. When I turn them on I hear the motor spinning but they are not moving, almost like its not connected or something.. its also not the fuse I checked that..
what could this be, and how much do you think it might cost to fix. or what would the part be called.

try taking apart the cowl which covers the wipers. the linkage may have come loose or the piece which connects the motor to the linkage may be worn. happened to my nissan. pain in the ass!!

MKIV's are known to also have the wiper linkage seize up here is a excellent post on fixing this if it is your problem.
