You need to remove the plastic cover that covers retaining nut. The nut on GM vehicles is usually 13 or 14 MM. The nut just need to be tightened and it should be tight again.

One of two things . The wiper arm is not tight on the crank pivot , allowing the crank to move but not the wiper arm. Or the linkage from the wiper motor to the crank pivot has become disconnected .

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.

Passenger side wiper does not work


If the driver side wiper is working then the linkage under the long thin grille at the lower of the windshield has disconnected. You can remove the screws from the wiper cover assy cover and usually snap the link rod back on fairly easy. This usually happens when folks do not take the time in winter to clear the windshield of ice before turning on the wipers. If the wiper blades are stuck to the windshield and you turn them on this linkage will pop off and you can also strip out the wiper arm where it bolts on to the pivot, you can should try and tighten this nut first and get lucky. See if the pivot is moving is so tighten the nut at the bottom of the wiper arm. If the pivot is not turning it is the link rod.

2004 Pontiac Grand Prix....Wipers are moving slowly


How to fix slow wipers on 2005 Grand prix
    -Remove black plastic caps on the wiper towers (end of wiper arm)
    -Undo nuts (13mm)
    -Make note of the wiper arms positions when in park so they can be reinstalled in the same spot. Also make note of the routing of the washer supply lines so you can reinstall them in the same position. Use a puller and pull off wiper arms. I did not have a puller but used a small c-clamp, jammed one end under the wiper arm and screwed the clamp into the wiper post (be careful with the threads, maybe leave the nut on loose until the arms break fee.
    -Move the wiper arms and washer supply line to the top of the engine to be out of the way.
    -Remove the rubber hood weather strip and store out of the way.
    -Remove both sides of the plastic cowl cover, there are 3 expansion clips, use a screw driver or wire cutters to pry out the pin first, then pry out the clip itself using same tools. Move the covers up onto the windshield so they are out of the way.
    -The entire wiper motor/transmission, wiper towers and arms are now exposed
    -Remove the arm from the motor that runs across to the passenger side wiper tower. This will make it much easier to remove the wiper assembly. The arms have a plastic end that snaps over a ball, these can be removed by prying off with a thin pair of pliers.
    -There are 3 bolts (10mm) holding the wiper assembly to the cowl. A 4th attachment point is merely a rubber end that fits into a slot in the cowl. Remove the 3 bolts and pull the wiper assembly from the car. Undo the electrical connection by pulling straight out.
    -In most cases the ball and plastic end of the arms will not be seized. These can each be removed, cleaned, regreased and reassembled. Just push back on with a large pair of pliers.
    -In my situation the driver's side tower and wiper shaft were moving freely. The passenger side was almost seized solid which is what causes the wipers to run real slow.
    -The wiper shaft must be freed up and removed from the tower so that it can be cleaned, greased and reassembled. The hardest part is removing the small C clip at the top of the wiper shaft that holds the shaft in the tower. C clip pliers or other means can be used to remove this clip. Be careful you don't break it or lose it. Once the C clip is removed the shaft can be removed from the tower. I did this by soaking with penetrating oil and tapping it in and out and working it back and forth with large pliers. Again be careful with the threads on the shaft. Put the nut on and use a brass hammer. You cannot hammer real hard as the tower is cast aluminum and may break if hit too hard. By being patient I was able to work the shaft free from the tower, clean both well with emery paper, grease and reassemble.
    -Overall reassembly is merely a reversal of the disassembly, being careful to put everything back in its proper place and order.
    -Leave the arm off running from the motor to the passenger side tower as this will allow the wiper assembly to go back in place much easier. Once the wiper assembly is bolted back in place, snap the arm into place over the ball at the motor after greasing.
    -Before reinstalling the plastic cowl coverings, it is a good time to replace your air conditioning intake filter in the cowl on the passenger side.
    -The above process took me about 3 hours start to finish and is moderate difficulty. Once completed the wipers run and park just like new, and it didn't cost me a dime.

1998 Grand Prix Windshield wiper problem passenger side wiper acts erractically


I assume that the drivers side is working perfectly and only the passanger side has a shorteded erattic sweep . It will be either a loose locking nut on the wiper arm (on spindle) or unusually a faulty crank arm (weld) on the underside of the wiper spindle . Good luck

The wiper arm came off of my 2004 pontiac grand am. how would i put it back on?


If it's the blade arm it's generally always best to replace it new and will come with new fasteners.

If it's the assembly arm itself depending upon how it was broken off you may need to replace assembly the arm from the stem complete with new / serviceable used bracket.
