Hyundai says although the older Genesis had warranty repair up to 100K miles my Equus does not- I looked it up its the same motor assembly as far as I can tell. here are some pictures and no real solution in sight- wiper blades should never fail like this - its a dangerous issue and should be covered under 100K miles dont you think? BS Hyundai! BS!

I have my doubts that JB weld will hold it. If it does I'll be very impressed.
Thats a real cheap and nasty way of making it. I haven't pulled one out for a long time but they have all had a tapered spline with a retaining nut. Modern manufacturing processes.

Well yeah, if it's pissin' with rain and YOU choose to drive with failed wipers then that is dangerous.

It's broken so the solution is simple...buy a new wiper motor. Or just glue it back together and risk another "dangerous" failure.

The 100,000 mile warranty is drive train only, and only for original owners, unless you bought a certified pre-owned vehicle from a Hyundai dealer. The wiper assembly would be covered under the original 5-year, 60,000 mile warranty. You are probably out of that.

This is a rare repair, I have not seen other complaints. How would this happen, that so much stress is put upon the spindle to strip the splines? I would guess ice or snow up there in New York, someone trying to turn on iced-locked
blades?

Down south we don't run into that so much.

no not any stress on wipers i garage the car and it has been very mild winter- I have no idea if even buying new motor will work since the aluminum arm it connects to is part of the entire assembly- I think I may have to drill into motor shaft and make a bolt end so it doesn't come out. the motor works just fine, its just a connection to grab the end to hold it in place which is problem.

I'm pretty sure a new motor will come with the crank arm attached. I'd be very, very surprised if it didn't given the way the two parts are assembled.

No one can answer for sure if that aluminum piece and the black iron motor shaft connect with a pin or lock washer? It only fits together through pressure between the cog like configuration- seems like I need to contact Hyundai for some answers
