Hello, I'm Brandon

What year is your XC90?

Most likely it is the front wiper motor that went bad. The cost of the part and labor is about $500.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
2008. Ouch on cost. Nothing that I should check for to see if a minor fix may work?
Volvo Mechanic: internal88, Mechanic replied 2 years ago

You could purchase a rebuilt wiper motor from autozone and the price would come down to $300.

Please rate me positive thank you.
