Customer Question

I own a 2008 Volvo 2008 CX70 with 53,000 miles on it and always kept in a garage. It is driven gently and maintained well. At 40,000 miles I had to change the wiper chain on the car. I was Pis***. At 53,000 miles the front wipers just stopped working at all suddenly and have no movement as all. They have no resistance when moved or pushed at all. The service manager said he had never seen anything like it. He and his mechanic at the dealer want to take apart and find what is wrong. Again I am really mad. They have said it is everything from the electronics to something mysterious in the wiper motor. Whatever it is they are sure it will cost a fortune. An unhappy Volvo owner

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

If you have no resistance when moving the blades then the problem is most like some has come loose or broken on the wiper mechanism or the motor or the wiper motor has failed , the only way to know is going to be to go in and have a look. Its not likely an electronic control issue and my not be as expensive you think. I suspect they are going to find something that has come loose.
