Asked by Mar 15, 2017 at 11:21 AM about the 2000 Volkswagen Jetta

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I didn't think I had that much snow/ice on my windshield. So I proceeded to
turn my windshield wipers on. They moved only a tiny bit. After I cleared the
snow, they will not move. The motor to the wipers will still make a noise like its
trying to get them to move, but my wipers don't move. What can I do?

Sounds like you stripped the pegs that drive the wiper arms. Stop at like Auto Zone or a parts store for some help. They replace wipers all the time.
