    My wipers stopped working yesterday on my 99 civic lx. I'm looking for a good civic forum or anyone with experience in fixing this type of thing.

    I can hear the motor spinning so it's not a fuse. The wiper arms themselves do not move at all though. Stripped out maybe?

    thanks for any help

    well one of the linkage arms came off. plastic piece that holds it to the ball joint broke off. basically i took a washer, cut a notch in it, put it in the vice and pryed it open some then put it around the ball and closed it with some pliers. that secured it on there while making sure everything still moved. seems to be working fine so far.
