My wipers died after 2 weeks of a front shock absorbers replacement.
When I review the motors I found the main board scratched by the own axis of the motor.
Please check the images.
The front shock absorbers replacement was made in an official shop of Ford.
I ask me if there are any relation between the front shock absorbers replacement and the died of my wipers.

What are the details of your Escape (year, trim, engine, etc..)?

I would look at the leads on this board and test them for continuity. If one is broken just jumper it. I haven't any idea what a wiper motor costs but I bet it isn't cheap. You will need to do something to keep the rubbing part from hitting. Seems like an engineering Boo-boo.

Yes, the manual says to use a puller to remove the wipers but I've seen a few people on here say you don't need one....

FYI @juandavid the plastic cowling needs to be removed at the base of the windscreen to access the front strut top bolts. The wiper arms need to be removed first to get that off. So definitely related to the work you had done.

As menioned you may be able to resurrect it by bridging any broken circuit tracks. If you've got a multimeter check the continuity between the ends of any scratched tracks.

If a dealer did the work, then it is guaranteed and you should tell them to fix the problem.
