Wiper Motor Replacement Cost
During replacement, a quality shop will inspect, lubricate, and torque all of the components of the wiper linkage. Adjustment of the wiper arms and replacement of the wiper blades may also be necessary.
The wiper control switch, wiper control unit, wiring, or broken linkage components can all behave like a failed wiper motor. Failure to properly inspect these items during the diagnosis may lead to the unnecessary replacement of the wiper motor.
Common symptoms of a failing wiper motor include wiper arms that stop in the middle of the windshield when turned off and wipers that operate intermittently or not at all.
