My guess would be the motor, more common a problem than the other components. You can/should check the fuse. It's a strip-fuse, located on the left front strut tower, it's in a black plastic box with a flip open lid. Check the fuse, and if it's OK, start the car and turn on the climate control, and turn on the windshield defroster, you should have about battery voltage on either of the screws retaining the strip fuse. If you do, need to get to the blower to test voltage at the motor, again looking for battery voltage.
It's a tough job for a novice. It's under the center of the windshield, need to remove the intake for the climate control, then the wiper motor and linkage assembly to get to it.
