No motor going on on our car.. some link is suspected. here is our story.
so yesterday my wife reports that the wipers are not working. I'm not with her or the car, I'm at work. I ask her tell me if the wipers are frozen to the glass and she tells me no. she can hear the motor going and the wipers move up and down (together) by hand. I tell her to take it to the dealership, warranty repair. It's a 2015 S bought April 14 2015. They come back and let us know the warranty has expired due to it only going to 36,000 miles and her car is at 38,000 miles on it right now.
So, I work two jobs. I'm pretty handy with cars, I used to repair all of my others up until now. I've looked up the details of the assembly and I suspect that the rod from the motor to the arms has either broken, one end has come disconnected or a pin broken.
Has anyone found the quickest way to get to the assembly, i got 5 mins with the car yesterday while on lunch break so I didn't dive under the hood to far. it's about 20 degrees by the time I get home after my 1st job and I only have about 1 hr before I'm off to my 2nd job. I will have sometime this weekend to see it in daylight and hopefully warmer temps.
if not, I'll spend some time looking up any leaf manuals to get in to the area between the firewall and motor area. Just hoping that someone else has done this and knows how long it takes and if you can see well enough to figure out the issue once you have access.
my wife did call up Nissan and they are non committal about extending the warranty to cover it.. more of a "have it fixed, paid for and we'll see about paying the dealership, but no promises". i don't work with maybes. I need to know what I'm getting into. I can probably fix it myself.. just looking for some others who might have been brave enough to tackle this project.
