Question about 1998 Saturn SL
I have a saturn SL1 and the wiper will not move on the passenger side what could be the problem and how do I fix it I need photos too?
If the driver's side is working OK then most likely your problem lies with the attachment of the passenger side arm to the transmission. The transmission is the linkage between the wiper motor and the wiper arms. Often the female or socket part of the arm has become stripped due to turning the wipers on whilst they are ice/snow stuck to the windshield. Remove the cap at the base of the arm, often this is already gone. Get a socket wrench and remove the nut which is exposed. Now gently pry the entire arm up and away from the splined stub sticking out, maybe some liquid wrench or WD40 could help here. Do NOT pry against the windshield. Take your removed wiper arm to a salvage or junk yard and have them sell you another just like it but making sure the inside of the stub socket is not already stripped smooth too. Put it on in the reverse order, firmly tightening the nut.
