    Default No wipers, buzzing sound

    04 XC70, wipers not working, checked the fuse with the spare, tapped the relay in the fuse box, got nothing. I had the battery unhooked for a few days doing an alternator rebuild. There is a strange buzzing sound that comes on and off, sounds like its under the dash or under the bottom of the windshield (where the wiper motor is I imagine). Ive got fuse 13 pulled currently. Rear wiper works fine. Ideas on a fix? Thanks, Dave

    Remove the cowl and inspect the wipers mechanism. It can disassemble itself when it lucks lubrication.

    Yeah so I opened her up last night and sure enough- right side wiper arm pivot is frozen / rusted tight. No movement. Junkyard trip for me.
