Try disconnecting the linkage to the motor if accessible and then connect the wipers together and then reattach to the motor.

One windshield wiper not working


Maybe the nut that hold the wiper to the linkage is either loose or stripped? The linkage itself is bad?

I think your wiper motor is fine because the passenger side works and uses the same motor to move the wipers.

Passenger side wiper inactive.thanks


remove plastic cap on right wiper arm ,there is a nut on top of it and it's not tight. Before to tight it unscrew it put some treading lock fluid and tight the nut. Or there is a linkage unhooked. if the left side working than it is not the motor or transmission

Driver side wind sheild wiper not working - passenger side wiper okay. driver side moves a little.


You have an assembly of arms that hook to motor one for each side sounds like your left one has come loose or is at least slipping you will have to remove the crowl panel at the wipers to check .The wiper is held on by a nut. The nut is under a plastic cover at the pivot point of the wiper. Loosen the nut then align the wiper blade where it's supposed to be then tighten the nut.Its not adjusted right, remove the nut that holds your left wiper on, then pry it off the shaft, lift the wiper up all the way then just pull up straight off the shaft, then put it back on so it starts at the left lower edge of the windshield.---- First, start by checking the nut at the base of the wiper arm, if it is good and tight, then you have to remove the cowl and check the wiper linkage.If the linkage has come apart then you will have to replace the piece that has come loose.------
Getting, this possibilities checked will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

My driver side wiper is not moving but the passenger side is. It is a 1993 Mazda MX6 LS. Any ideas?


it seems the motor is working ok so it only leaves your linkage or the actual wiperarm mounting to fault.remove the retaining nut on the drivers side wiper arm usually a 12 or 13 mm spanner.once removed turn wipers on and keep hands clear, look at the drivers side spindle,if it turns when the other wiper moves your linkage is ok and you need a new arm, if it dosn't move then its your linkage,hope this helps!

2004 Cavalier Wiper Motor


hi, im not sure if they would have a separate motor each because most vehicles have a linkage bar that connects the two wipers to keep them in time with each other. without the wipers on, try manually rotating the paasenger side wiper (be gentle) if that moves easily and the drivers side does not even flinch, then it could be a broken linkage. hope i helped!

Wiper issue


wiper arm bolt needs to be tighened, or more common the arm needs to be replaced. where the bolt is the end arm insert is made of soft led as to strip out if arm becomes binded by snow, tree branch etc so the more expentise linkage or wiper trasmisson, or motor do not become damaged.

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.
