Question about 1997 Honda Passport
On most cars there is a cap at the base of the wiper arm. Under this cap is a bolt which you can remove. Once removed some gentle lifting/rocking of entire the arm will cause it to come up and off the car. You will be looking at a coned splined shaft which will be turning back and forth when you turn the wipers on. If not then the wiper transmission needs to be replaced. But if you see it turning happily back and forth along with your working wiper, then you need to take the stripped out wiper arm you removed to a junk yard and ask them to find you one like it but in better shape. The inner female coned surface on the wiper arm is stripped, due to snow or some other seizure of the arm while the wiper motor was running. Install in reverse order with the wiper motor off. And next winter think about knocking the snow and ice off the wipers before you turn them on.
