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.

Passenger side wiperblade arm not moving, driver's side working fine.


you need to check to make sure the "arm" is moving , some gm vehilce have a sealed wiper unit, but the alero should still have arms. turn wipers on and look down at the cowl vent and see if it appears to move. if it is the mounting post for the arm on the passenger side has PROBABLY stripped out the soft lead mount at the bottom of the wiper arm. make sure the wipers are "parked", then carefully try to wiggle the pass side back and forth (its normal motion...). if it moves you will need to pop the arm off(super careful here..) and the post that looks smooth must be cleaned out with a fine pick or equilalent, the post accually has splines all around to engage the wiper arm. put on the new arm.. presto.... wipers.

Windshield wiper doesn't work on the driver's side?


It sounds like the retaining nut has come loose. First cycle the wipers and shut off to put in the park position, Remove the cap at the base of the wiper arm there should be a nut. Position wiper to where it usually rests in the park position, and tighten nut. Try the wipers, if working replaced cap good to go. If it still doesn't move then quite likely that side arm has popped off the wiper transmission underneath the front cowl. Remove both wiper arms by taking off nuts and prying off, check underneath the cowl. If you find the arm popped off a ball stud reattach and try wipers (without installing cowl or wiper arms, just check to see if both sides swivel. If it pops off again its worn out and you will need a wiper transmission.

My wipers on my 2004 Chevy Venture don't work properly. The driver side does not work but the passanger side does. The driver side moves freely, so when i move it all the way up, it falls over the side...


There are nuts on the wiper arm posts under plastic caps[ if still there ] they looen sometimes and the arm won't move turn off the wipers so the 'park' and check the nut for tightness - should be quite snug. it that dosen't fix it then you have a linkage problem from the motor.

1994 chevy 1500 windshield wiper. One works fine, but the other only move 3 inches in the up position and it slides toward the side mirror


your wiper transmission has dislodged itself from the wiper arm on the passanger side...
Take hold of the passanger side wiper arm and see if it moves independantly ( not in sequence with the drivers side wiper arm).

You may be required to remove the fresh air intake valance and install a new ( used?) wiper transmission assembly...
What happens is the plastic cups on the wiper transmission wear out and pop off...
easy fix ya !

2003 Buick. The pass side wiper stopped working,


the arm mechanism has a clip that pop off get a new clip and remove the access panel and move the arm over to the access area put the arm back into the hole socket and reattache clip , not the easiest repair but with a long pair of needle nose pliers you should have a better chance to complete repair. Some cars to access the arm the wiper motor must be disconnected and pulled out slightly then move wiper over and reattache pin arm into lever hole nstall clip.

One wiper works fine the other barely moves


Pop the cap up at the base of your wiper,where it attaches to the car.I believe you will find the nut is loose or the shaft of the wiper motor is stripped where the wiper slides onto shaft
