problem #2

  • miles
The windshield wipers stayed in the upright position when they were shut off. Took the car to the bill wink dealer and paid $ $78 to reposition them but only 3 days later, the wipers won't even move. I hear the motor trying to move them but its like they just don't catch the wiper to move them. Does anyone have any suggestions?
