I believe your diagnosis is correct, the wiper assembly is spinning, and not making a good connection with the wiper arm socket. The wiper arm socket has grooves in it that match up with grooves on the wiper assembly. If the grooves on the wiper arm are worn down, then the assembly can't 'grab' the wiper arm socket. Take off the wiper arm to inspect the socket. There is probably a retainer clip holding the arm in place. You may get some help from Advance Auto or Auto Zone.

SOURCE: Wiper arm not moving

Check the splines on the post where the wiper are mounts and make sure they are not rounded off. If they are intatct, remove the cowl (sheetmetal between the hood and windshield) and check the mechanical linkages that connect the wiper arms together

SOURCE: driver side wiper won't work, but passenger does

I believe this is a press fit connection. As Knight 007 writes, "it's worn out".

The passenger side windshield wiper stopped working but the motor is good & driver side works


the wiper arm may have come loose from the motor linkage , where the arm joins the linkage outside of bonnet/hood there is a flip up cap , under there is a nut that holds the wiper arm in position , this may be loose so remove completely then remove the arm as the splines may not be in the correct position, replace the arm so that when it is laid back down on windscreen it is level with the bottom and tighten the nut , you must tighten the nut with the wiper arm raised so as to get a good fit , this may require a couple of attempts to get in the exact position when wiper arm is laid back down, hope that makes sense

Only my driver side windshield wiper isnt working


at the base of the wiper arm theres a small cap to cover the point where the arm is mounted to the mechanism,remove the cap and tighten the nut ,you may have to loosen and tighten this nut a few times to adjust the arc of movement of the arm,ie,it may move too far across and foul the other wiper or too far down and foul the window lip,a bit of trial and error should see it working as good as new,
its nothing to do with fuses or electrics of any sort its just a loose nut on the wiper arm mount is all

Passenger Side Windshield Wiper Broken


Hi Jill,
The first thing to check is a 13mm nut that holds the wiper arm in place.See if you can move the wiper arm freely back and forth.There is a nut at the base of that wiper arm,Lift up a cover that is hiding the nut. If it comes loose from being froze from ice or snow. Put the wiper in its rest position and tighten the nut back up.

The passenger side wiper blade won't work I have a 2006 Torrent when the wipers are on the nut doesn't even turn please help


The wiper arm "nut" is the key...try tightening the nut down...be sure the wiper arm is in the correct (same) location as the drivers side...you can do this by running the good side, and turn wipers off before turning the key off...this will assure proper alignment...Don't be afraid to torque the nut down...this is the most common problem...as winter and ice take a toll on frozen...wiper arms that are pulled loose from the ice or snow...Hope this helps.

Driver side wiper does not move; passenger side wiper crosses over it


In view of the answer from jchaffcom I feel that if there is a Hex on the end of the Wiper Arm the Hex Nut needs Tightened. I have a 2004 Silverado and this is what happened to it. Simply tightening the Nut solved my problem. Try it and get back to me with the results whether good or bad.

Driver side wiper arm moves only a little


The cap pulls off, try to pry it with a screwdriver. then set the arm where it needs to be and tighten the nut under the cap. This is common, the nut usually just loosens.

03 Taurus wiper problem


What I would suggest you do is the following:

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

Start the car and test
