Default Windshield Wipers Stopped Working

The windshield wipers on my 2001 Xterra XE stopped working yesterday. It was making a loud noise, so I think the motor is still working and the fuse is good. I cannot figure out how to remove the trim piece to check the wiper motors to see if something just came undone. Anyone know how to remove the trim peice under the windshield, or know what this problem may be?

You say you think the motor is still working....Check the nut holding the wiper arm to see if it is loose...If so, the motor stud would be turning and chewing up the splines...This just occurred to my '01...Instead of replacing the chewed splines, I just re-seated the nut for the "band aid" fix....I also just found my other wiper loose last weekend and re-seated it as well....If stud does not turn, then you should look into the mechanics of the wiper mechanism itself.

Both wipers stopped and there is still motor noise. It is not the nut, it is the mechanics under the trim. I need to know how to remove the plastic trim pieces under the windshield to access these parts.

Download the Manual(on this forum) called 01 Electrical System, go to page 121 or EL-121...As for the plastic Cowl removal, should be self-explanatory...but if you need instructions, here is a link with pictures..
