comment Volvo 440 GL with 2 liter motor vibrating without gear, why? And how to diagnose this?
You'll need to describe the vibration - is it a mechanical clatter, a vibration from the engine, does it change with engine revs, does it sound like a cylinder is misfiring - ie an uneven noise etc. Without this description it can be a bit difficult to guess the particular problem you are having. Perhaps record it and post a link to the audio?

The batteries in the pictures both have caps - so you can check and fill.

comment Windshield wipers stop and motor makes noise
Nah - just had to fix exactly this on a friends car last month. Needed to straighten the rod attached to the motor and it sorted out both wipers. That said, i think your answer is probably the right one.

Get it done asap - otherwise you'll find yourself stuck somewhere with no drive...

Similarly, the Rain-X product line works very well for this sort of thing.
