The problem you have is the shaft that the nut is on has splinds on it and these are worn out, the only real solution is to change the shaft.
Hope this helps

Front drivers wiper not working


I have the same problem. When I removed the drivers side wiper arm, I found that the nut that held the arm in place was only finger tight, which allowed the arm to raise slightly off the splined shaft. This caused the shaft to strip the splines out of the wiper arm.. after inspecting and cleaning the shaft, it appears that the splines on the shaft are still in decent shape. You may need to only replace the wiper arm. About $50 at a few online toyota parts sellers. replacing it is simple and requires only a flat blade screwdriver to remove the black cap off the nut, and a wrench to remove and replace the nut. simply remove the nut, and pop off the wiper arm. push the new arm onto the splined shaft pointing the same place as the passenger side wiper, then tighten the nut down. I would also suggest wiping the metal shavings off the splined shaft with some sort of abrasive pad, like scotchbrite, before putting the new wiper arm back on. I hope this helps.

My wipers on my 2004 Chevy Venture don't work properly. The driver side does not work but the passanger side does. The driver side moves freely, so when i move it all the way up, it falls over the side...


There are nuts on the wiper arm posts under plastic caps[ if still there ] they looen sometimes and the arm won't move turn off the wipers so the 'park' and check the nut for tightness - should be quite snug. it that dosen't fix it then you have a linkage problem from the motor.

My 1997 Bravada's driver side wiper moves way to far to the right, then will hang up.


You'll have to re set it on the drive shaft.

At the bottom of the wiper arm, there's a flip up cap, flip that up, could be abit tight, and you should see a nut holding the wiper arm on the motort shaft. undo the nut, take the wiper arm off and replace is what appear a better position. May take a couple of trys to get it right.

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!

Drivers side wiper quit proper function. Driver side wiper only moves a few inches. Motor probably needs replacement. 99 chevy silverado p/u


some wiper arms fit over a splined pivot post. When you tighten the nut down, the splines cut into the wiper arm thus holding it tight and keeping it from slipping on the post.
You may just need to tighten the wiper arm down r replace the wiper arm. Does it have a cover that you can rotae up and expse the nut?
