Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette
The other day I was driving in a rain storm and the passenger side windshield wiper flung all the way off the side of the window and is now just loose. I moved it down to the off position but when I use the wipers it will not work. The driver side works just fine but passenger side will not work at all. Any help would be appreciated, thank you!!
Your wipers have a transmission of its own. It is located between the wiper motor and the wiper arms. the linkage to the right wiper arm has fallen off. More than likely you will need to replace the transmission. If the wiper motor is original, replace it at the same time. Sometimes you can buy the two together. Any other questions, feel free to write back, good luck.

Testimonial: "It turned out that the wiper arm was just loose. After further examination I realized that everything under the hood was rotating like it was supposed to, even the bolt that the wiper arm attaches to just the arm itself wasn't moving. So I removed the arm and tightened it back down and now it works again! Thanks for the help anyway."
