Hopefully i can help..

If the wiper motors still running ok but the wipers arent responding - then the linkage/wiper linkage the motor operates is at fault..or one of the arms has popped off..you really need to get to access to the wiper linkage/motor assembly to be certain of whats gone wrong..you might be able to pop back on which ever arms has come off but normally it replacement of the complete linkage is required if unrepairable...to get acess you need to remove the wiper arms from the spindles that come throw the plastic panel under the windscreen..then remove that weather strip then that complete plastic panel and under the you should get acess to the linkage.if a new one is to be fitted..then ensure the motor on its own is in "park position" before setting the linkage/wipers arms back..but as above that about the best way forward checking this and see whats needing done to rectify this..I do hope this helps
