The wiper arms are mounted to "splined" shafts. Either the arm or shaft may be stripped. You need to remove the arm and inspect them.

Windshield wipers stopped working


The arms are most likely stripped out. Were they frozen when motor was turned on? They are made of lead so they will strip instead of the more expensive motor going out.

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
