Windshield wipers have stopped working

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

After having the windshield replaced on my 2009 VW Jetta the wipers have stopped working, though I can hear the

I spect that when they removed the wiper arms from the pivots that they inadvertantly popped the ball socket off the wiper motor crank arm . unless you are ambidexterious or at least very flexible ,it would be easyer to go to a shop . they can pop it right back on for you in a jffy ... PBN
