Check the linkage connected to the wiper motor and make sure that it is still connected. Look at the unit with the wiper motor running. if the motor shaft is turning and the wipers aren't then your linkage has a broken or missing pin somewhere.

Your 1996 elantra wipers stopped moving but the motor still makes sound why and how do you fix it?

your motor is working fine but its your complete wiper mounting ,( the brackets an the moving arm that has to be replaced since it is corroded with rust or if you are in Canada then salt and calcium deposits making it slow to move an eventually to cease causin ur motor to die. I'd change it as soon as possible. I bought mine from scrap in perfect condition for 50 $ cdn.

What is the size of the windshield wiper blade for a 2001 BMW 325i?

The 2001 BMW 325i takes a 23" drivers side and a 20" passenger side but they are fairly specialized wipers so you can't just get any aftermarket wiper. I recommend going to the dealer OR possibly looking at Valeo wipers since I believe they are one of the few that makes wipers that will fit. Be sure to lookup the make, model and year of the vehicle no matter what wipers you're looking at.
