Check windshield wiper motor module to make sure connection is fully snapped in to place and wires are not bent or loose. New module is around $35.

SOURCE: my driver side windshield wiper

The wipers on our 2005 Impala would also park in the vertical position. I was perplexed b/c the tab on the wiper motor mounting bracket was not bent down out of alignment. As it turned out, I was simply able to lubricate the spring loaded arm mechanism (in this case on top of the wiper motor/transmission), and this corrected the problem.

SOURCE: windshield wiper on driver's side of Hyuandi doesn't work -

I recently had the same problem of the drivers side wiper not working. My boyfriend (a mechanic) took the windshield cowl off and looked to see what was going on. He originally thought that maybe something had slipped off. I'm going to describe what he found in layman's terms. When you take off the wiper blade arms from the wiper transmission assembly unit there are these silver colored nubs with grooves on them (one for each wiper). What he found was that on mine the grooves were stripped so that the wiper on the drivers side wouldn't catch and go across the windshield while the other wiper worked fine. What we think that happened is that I left the wipers on when I shut off the car and since we had a huge snowstorm the wiper transmission bound up and stripped the nubs when I turned on the vehicle the next day and let it warm up. I had tried for the past week to find a used replacement wiper transmissions assembly but was not successful. I just ordered the part from my local Hyundai dealer at a cost of $180. I will at least save on the labor, as my boyfriend can handle that part. If you try to get the part used, be careful. There was a product change mid-year. Prior to June 2004 (If I remember correctly) is one part number and Santa Fe's manufactured after that date is a different part. I needed the earlier Santa Fe part. You can look at the body panel between the front and back doors on the driver's side for the production date of your vehicle there is a metal decal with the vin, your color codes, and other information.

SOURCE: My passenger side windshield wiper does not work,

Sounds like you have a part of your linkage that popped off the pivot. Open the hood remove the 2 small esthetic caps on the wiper baldes. Remove the 2- 13mm nuts. Use a little wiper puller and pull the arms off the linkage. Remove the plastic tray starting by first removing the 4 screws on the passenger side to remove the pollen filter cover, then removing the outer edge pieces then slowly pulling up on the ends to disengage the tray. The tray is just pushed in, no clips or screws. You can then see the wiper linkage. Do not put your hands there while the ignition is on. I'd suggest even removing the battery terminals so the wipers don't accidently come on. Check you must have a pivot arm that came off. Check to see if it's damaged and what part you'll need. The linkage can be removed with the motor with 3 small 10mm bolts.

Olds Silhouette Passenger Side wiper not working


Your wipers have a transmission of its own. It is located between the wiper motor and the wiper arms. the linkage to the right wiper arm has fallen off. More than likely you will need to replace the transmission. If the wiper motor is original, replace it at the same time. Sometimes you can buy the two together. Any other questions, feel free to write back, good luck.

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.

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.

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

DRIVER SIDE WINDSHIELD WIPER STOPPED WORKING. DO I NEED TO REPLACE ENTIRE ARM OR COULD IT BE SOMETHING ELSE?


It could just be the bolt holding the arm on. Sometimes they vibrate loose. Does the passenger side work properly?
Can you move the driver side wiper arm across the windshield by hand?
There should be some soft of plastic cap at the pivot point of the wiper arm that can be removed to get to the bolt - so you can see if its loose.

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.
