Re: One front wiper not working on Outlander 2003
If you open the hood look towards the base of the windshield, you should see the linkages for the wiper arms. make sure the linkages are all in-tact and nothing fell off. if the linkages are all good, see if you can move the passenger side wiper with your hand, if it moves freely or with little resistance check the nut/bolt that hols it on at the end of the wiper arm. see if the nut/bolt is loose. tighten if needed. also you can remove the nut/bolt and check the splines on the wiper arm where it presses onto the stud and see if they are wiped out.

Likely broke the nylon bushing cap on the left side wiper transmission assembly. Best as I can tell, the cap is not replaceable so replacement of the assembly is required. These are available new AC Delco p/n 19120840 about $75, or on ebay used for about $35. ACDelco 19120840 Windshield Washer Transmission Kit. Goold luck, mine's broke too!
1) Remove the driver side wiper (arm & blade). 2) Start the car and turn on the wipers. 3) When the passenger wiper is straight up and down .. turn off the car. This leaves the wiper in position. 4) Re-install the drivers side wiper and put it back on so its position is the same as the passenger - making them parallel
I have worked on other wipers, but haven't looked specifically at the Elantra. My guess is that there may be a bolt loose in the linkage between the wiper arms. The motor seems to be working fine, so it is possibly in the linkage between the wiper arms. I think that it can be fixed fairly quickly if this is the issue.
