I suspect a retainer came loose from the arm to the wiper transmission, you will need to get at the wiper transmission and reattach the art to the pivot.

with the switch on, do you have power at the motor! if there is no power then switch has to be bad. have a good day ! it pretty much has to be the switch. Just buy one from your local auto parts place, and if it doesnt fix it just take it back and get your money back smile.gif . have a good day !!

The windshield wipers on my 1999 Chevy Malibu no longer work. It's very cold and snowy here. They made a jerky motion at first and now no longer work. Thank you.


I would say that the wiper motor arms have jumped off and you have to take the rill right under your windshield off and snap the wiper motor arm back on to the wiper motor and then put the grill back on there and then you are all set to use them again.

Broken wiper arm on 1997 Chev Malibu


the best option is a small puller, but you probably dont have one so...put the nut back on, run it down on the threads just enough for the nut to be all the way on, but no thread protruding from it. Now lightly pry on the bottom of the arm while tapping on the nut with a hammer, the shock should loosen the tapered connection and pop off the arm.

Windshield wiper problem


this could be a result of the linkage coming apart this is located under the cowel and not easy to service. It could also be a result of bad splines between the wiper arm adn wiper arm shaft. if the later is the case you can sometimes tighten the 15 mm nut that holds the arm to the shaft. but this will only work once or twice before the arm requires repolacement. remember folks, wipers are your friend in the winter, they are not ice chippers or snow plows, always clear your windshield with an ice scraper and make sure the wiper blades are not frozen to the glass. this small form of torture in the cold will save you big $$$ in the auto repair shops.
