Driver side windshield wiper doesn't work

I thought maybe the teeth on the wiper arm were stripped, but it turns out that the teeth on the post are stripped. Any way to fix this?

Only proper fix is to replace. might could put some epoxy in the wiper arm(very small amount) and reinstall let it set up without using for a while. remember if you do this it will never come off again!!!

Either the wiper arms are loose or stripped on the pivots or the wiper linkage is broken. Try tightening the arm to pivot bolt. If that doesn't work, remove the plastic cowling and examine the linkage. You can buy new linkage for it.

My 2003 Sante Fe drivers side windshield wiper is not working. Passenger side is OK


Remove the wiper arm by taking the nut off the end of the post coming through the base of the wiper. turn on the wipers and if the little post is turning back and forth with the other wiper, then you need a new wiper arm. the little serrations on the inside of the arm's base get stripped, usually from turning the wipers on when they are stuck to the windshield by ice. if the little post is not turning then you need a new wiper transmission. you will need a repair manual for that.

Drivers side windshield wiper is working properly but passanger side quit it works sometimes


Unless there's something wrong with the linkages; which I can't imagine...
It almost has to be the nut is loose on the passenger side.

Make sure the wipers are off and the igition is off.
According to what you say, the driver's wiper is in the correct "parked" position.
On the passenger side wiper arm, pop off the plastic cover at the pivot point of the arm.
Underneath, there is a nut. Loosen the nut a little. Wiggle the arm while pushing the arm down. Hold arm in place and tighten the nut. Replace cover.

If that doesn't take care of it, you may have to remove the arm completely and check the tapered spline underneath. Either the arm or the post spline may be stripped. Maybe try a new arm, as the post will be more difficult to replace.

Passenger windshield wiper quit working


if the passanger wiper stopped working AND the drivers side is still working...one of two problems. the easiest is to pop off the black cap at the base of the wiper arm, under it you will find a nut. check to see the nut is tight. turn the wipers on and observe the post that the nut is on, if it is turning, then the nut needs to be tightened or the spline on the post or wiper arm is stripped. If the post is not turning, then most likely an arm on your wiper assembly has come off, remove the wiper arms remove the black plastic cowl and you will find the wiper arm assembly.
good luck. HTH

For the last few weeks I've been tightening my 2003 impala's passenger side windshield wiper daily. It also slams onto the plastic when it reaches the bottom...what could the problems be? The driver side...


the wiper arm could need to be replaced
being loose could have have worn the hole in the wiper arm
or the splines on the wiper transmission maybe damaged
i would try a new wiper arm first
use BLUE LOCTITE on the threads and TORQUE the nut to (22 lb ft)
hope this helps
