Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

It could have been damaged from the water, have you pulled the connector to see if there was water in it?

no, you have to pull the whole wiper out to get to the plug its under the windshield this is the second motor it is a new motor not a rebuild

If it was working fine until you hit the car wash I would suspect a connector problem or case cracked or not sealed on the motor
