windshield wipers do not work on 2002 Mini Cooper S

previous night freezing temp and snow, wipers were working. next morning started car, rear wiper worked, fronts were frozen, cleared them and then tried them, and NO GO. checked 20 amp fuse, OK. replaced fuse F5/F7,still NO GO. Dealer wants 850.00 to replace wiper motor. I'm handy but need instruction ? Any ideas ?

are you sure the wiper shafts are not turning? check to make sure they have not just loosened at the wiper arm. If you would like a second opinion or a quote we service Mini! Good luck! Greg
