Question about 1999 Saturn SL

1 Answer

The driver side wiper works correctly but the passenger side sort of jumps and then goes up but doesn't move properly. It is out of sinc with the driver side and then hangs up all together. It almost acts as if there are gears that are loose or something.

Remove the wiper arm and clean the splines.What happens is they become loose and then only catch sometimes.So just clean the splines and reinstall the arm and make sure and tighten it down.Hope this helps.

Passenger Windshield Wiper Not Working


If it were the motor neither side would move. Chances are its the linkage.
You'll probably need to remove the panel under the windshield to access the linkage and check it out.

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.

2009 Touareg passenger side windshield wiper arm does not move but driver side does


sounds like the connecting rod between both wiper arms either broke or one of the keepers popped off under the connector for that arm..since the wiper system IS NOT designed to wisk snow off the window once accumulated, this can an does happen.. even seen motors get burned out doing this..cleaning the window first will save this issue and the equiptment. need to acess this arm<take off the vented peice below the windshield and everything should be visible there..repost findings

2000 BUICK REGAL MY WIPER BLADES (DRIVER SIDE) WENT OFF THE WINDSHIELD THE OTHER NIGHT. WHEN I PUT IT BACK IT DID NOT WORK PROPERTY WHAT COULD BE WRONG DO I NEED TO TAKE IT TO A DEALER?


i`m not sure what you mean by it not working properly i assume that you mean it goes back and forth like the passenger side, but it doesn`t clean the window and you put the blade on the arm correctly then the wiper may be damaged and you will have to replace the wiper blade.check and compare the installation of the driver`s side to the passenger side wiper and correct the installation of the blade

Passenger side wiper does not work, but the driver side works fine. i think it broke somehow when i turned on the wipers while there was ice on the windsheild. the driver's side worked, but the ice...


When you tried to move the wiper with the ice it probably broke an inner componette and connecting rodes from motor. You'll haft to inspect the rodes and motor to know what damage is done but it you can move the wiper easily by hand it's definitly broke. If it is real hard and dont want to move it might be jammed and you might be able to move it alittle to move it back into place.

2006 hhr passenger side windshield wiper not moving but drivers side is fine??


First remove the complete passenger side wiper check and make sure splines on wiper are not stripped. If this is not the problem It could be a linkage bar from the wiper motor to the wiper off or disconected. Since both wipers share the same motor if one works the other should. Check this by removing both wipers and then "Cawl" (little black piece between the hood and windshield underneath the wipers) Underneath the cawl you should be able to see the windshield wiper motor, and linkage bar to both of the wipers. See if the bar is disconected from the passenger side. If it is than reconnect it. These are the only two possible scenarios.

There is a linkage that connects the driver side and passenger side wipers so they can work in tandem. That linkage has either broken or come loose at the driver side wiper or the passenger side wiper. Check this link to see how wipers operate and then you can examine yours to see where the problem exists.

Driver side windshield wiper only goes up about 1/3 of way, is this a problem with the linkage. the passenger side works fine so I don't think it is the wiper motor.


Look at the base of the wiper arm, there is a cover that you can move. There will be a nut behind the cover, this secures the wiper arm to the linkage, its probably loose. Turn the wipers off so they are in the parked position, put the wiper arm in its proper position, then tighten the nut.

1999 Buick Centery passenger side windshield wiper


Sounds like you need two new wiper motors. I beliveve the gearing inside the motors are worn out and now theres alot of play in them. Try wiggling the wipers with you hands and see if you can feel any up or down / side to side movement.
