Check wiper arm where it fits to the shaft the nut may have come loose! if so reset the arm to its normal resting place & retighten!
if its ok then its more likely that it has come off its pivot under the csuttle panel
it may need a new pivot

If drivers wiper arm will not move by motor operation and can be easily moved by hand ( with wiper on or off ) suspect disconnected/broken linkage. If wiper arm will not move by motor and takes effort ( With wiper on ) by hand... suspect seized wiper pivot

One windshield wiper not working


Maybe the nut that hold the wiper to the linkage is either loose or stripped? The linkage itself is bad?

I think your wiper motor is fine because the passenger side works and uses the same motor to move the wipers.

You must remove the wiper arm to make sure the serrations on both the arm and where it mounts to are not damaged. Turn on the wipers and see if the nub that the wiper arm mounts to is moving.

If it isn't, there is a mechanism called the Wiper Transmission. It is located in the cowl at the bottom of the windshield. The device has a number of arms. The arm that connects the right side to the transmission is off. This is usually the fault of a small round plastic piece at the end of the arm. Simply putting it back on is nit recommended because it will probably fall off again. This plastic piece is attainable at most good auto parts places.

You will need to find where in the linkage the problem is. I would start taking it apart to see what is and what isn't working correctly. Autozone website has free repair manuals available online.

Passenger side wiperblade arm not moving, driver's side working fine.


you need to check to make sure the "arm" is moving , some gm vehilce have a sealed wiper unit, but the alero should still have arms. turn wipers on and look down at the cowl vent and see if it appears to move. if it is the mounting post for the arm on the passenger side has PROBABLY stripped out the soft lead mount at the bottom of the wiper arm. make sure the wipers are "parked", then carefully try to wiggle the pass side back and forth (its normal motion...). if it moves you will need to pop the arm off(super careful here..) and the post that looks smooth must be cleaned out with a fine pick or equilalent, the post accually has splines all around to engage the wiper arm. put on the new arm.. presto.... wipers.
