My windshield wipers don't work

How can I access the area where the connecting arm must be? I can hear the wiper motor running but the wipers are not moving.

On another topic, I have no instrument lights. The fuses all look fine. How do I find the lamps?

RE: My windshield wipers don't work

The instrument panel on many 60's/70's cars are held in by a gasket and will pull straight out. Push the speedo cable, heater wire, oil line/or wire so that you can get behind. The rheostat is generally the problem with no dash lights, you can take it out and tinker with it, or just jumper the two terminals and have fully unadjustable dash lights when the headlights are on.
