Iíve been slowing getting all electric gadgets working again in this square and am down to wipers...the motor runs in both speeds with the arms up off the glass, but when blades are against the glass the motor runs but nothing moves. Anyone have pictures of whatís inside the assembly so maybe I can fix them?

Are you sure it's not as simple as the shaft slipping in the wiper arm? There are numerous different kinds of wiper arms for different years of cars. What year car? Pictures of said wipers?

if the arms aren't on correctly (slide all the way down so the ridges are locked in) the motor will run and arms won't move. Seems like common sense but it's easy to miss.
