MAKE SURE IT IS NOT THE MOTOR to do this turn on the windshiled wipers. if you hear the motor, it is fine.
SECURE THE PART you cannot buy the plastic part which is called the bushing. technically it is called the wiper linkage bushing. (well you can buy the bushing, but usually from a place like autozone and they dont sell it for our car. ) so you have to buy the part from honda, and you have to buy the whole arm, called the wiper linkage. (you have two of them, an A and a B. A is on top, B is on the bottom)
TAKE DOWN THE COWL that is the plastic part over the motor and the wiper linkages
REMOVE OLD WIPER LINKAGE
APPLY NEW LINKAGE --BUT LUBE UP SURFACE VERY WELL,, b/c it will be too tight.
SET WIPER to ZERO to make sure it wipes the way it needs to.
hope this helps. BUT if it doesn't HONDA can put it on fro about 45 minutes if you take down everything, and all they have to do is put on the arm and put back on the wipers!

This is a DIY fix for a dollar.The white plastic caps that join the wiper arms together in the wiper assembly commonly wear and break under normal use. 1984 - 1986 Honda CRX and Civics also used these plastic caps for a short time - much to my dismay. In my 2000 Subaru Legacy and Subaru Forester (should work on 2001, 2002, 2003, and 2004 models as well), there is an easy DIY solution that will take care of the excessive play in the wiper travel, as well as the common 'wiper clunk'. Head over to your local auto parts store an purchase a PCV Valve grommet for a Toyota. Part number 42058. These are only a dollar, and are normally stocked on the shelf. If you put the phrase 'pcv valve 42058' into to Google Image Search you will see what I mean. I’m attaching a picture as well. For installation, gain access to the wiper assembly, I recommend removing the entire assembly (arms and motor) from below the black trim piece under the windshield. Inspect all the joints. If you have a loose joint, remove the white plastic cap and the arm from the ball joint. Slide the PCV Valve Grommet over the ball joint and press the arm into the grommet. This is now a perfect, snug fit. Wiper blades slamming into the car is a thing of the past.
Most likely you will have to replace the wiper linkage from the center pivot to the left or drivers-side wiper pivot. The plastic piece in the linkage gets brittle over time and breaks down. To save a hassle in the future, replace both linkages. It should be under $20.00 for parts.
