Question about 1993 Volvo 850
The passenger front window button doesn't roll it down. The back passenger used to be intermittent but now it works. Also the Right side windshield wiper doesn't move.
If the P/S window works from the driver's master switch - your problem lies in the P/S switch itself.
As far as the wiper not working - they are interlinked, and work in tandem... so the only thing it could be is the mounting nut. Lift up the plastic cover/cap and tighten the 1/2" nut. It is probably worked loose.
If the nut holding the wiper arm is loose, it will let the stud just swivel in place and the arm wont move.
If the nut is tight then the arm under the cowl attached to the wiper levers has come loose.
FOR FUTURE REFERENCE - TIGHTNESS OF THE NUT , PLACE SPRING WASHER first, BEFORE NUT PLACEMENT... and tighten. CHECK OFTEN FOR TIGHTNESS, OTHERWISE THE THREAD BETWEEN STUD AND WIPER ARM WILL WEAR OUT ... and new wiper arm (~ $60.) has to be purchased.
Thanks for using FixYa!!
