02 f-350 7.3 wipers not working

    When I turn the switch on for my wipers it just makes a noise and nothing happens. When I took the plastic cowling off at the base of the windshield i could get the wipers to do one revolution up and down if I turned the wipers on and pushed on the wiper motor linkage. It would only go up and down once and then stop until I pushed on it again.

    Has anyone experienced this? Im thinking its either the motor or the switch but dont want to throw parts at it?

    Any help is appreciated thanks!

    ok thats what I was thinking. It really sucks losing wipers in the middle of a 10 inch storm.

    No kidding, we only had about 3".

    Funny thing is it was on an '02 F350 as well.
