You will need to find where in the linkage the problem is. I would start taking it apart to see what is and what isn't working correctly. Autozone website has free repair manuals available online.

I have an 01 Ford expedition and when I use my wipes only the driver's side wipe works...what is up with that?


i think that the problem with your wipers is the mechanism maybe the arm that moves the passenger side wiper become loose and that's why it doesn't move

The windshield wiper on the driver's side must be removed and reinstalled (I suppose) because it is no longer correctly doing the "wiper thing." The passanger side one works, but the driver side...


If you lift the wiper arms off the window to reduce friction and operate the wipers, do they both move? If the shaft and wiper arm doesn't move on the bad wiper, take it to a garage as it is a big job to replace the mechanism. If the shaft of the bad arm moves, the nut holding the wiper arm onto the rotating shaft should be tightened. If that does not fix the problem you should remove the nut and wiper arm and inspect the splined shaft end for wear. Clean the grooves and reattach the arm. This will normally fix most bad wipers and helps them do their "wiping thing".

Only one windshield wiper works the wiper arm is connected to the motor, but the drivers side wiper doesnt move at the same time, eventually causing the wipers to hit each other. They dont wipe in Sync....


The splined fitting is pressed into the linkage. The fit became loose so that side will not operate correctly no longer. You will need to remove replace the complete linkage

Driver's side windshield wiper stopped working duing a heavy rain. I can move it by hand easily. Has the linkage come loose?


Hello, I would say that is exactly what has happened. If you can move the wipers with no resistance it's likely one of the bolts has come loose. Both wiper arms are linked to one wiper motor.

Drivers side windshield wiper not moving


The bolt that holds the wiper on is loose. There is a little plastic cap at the other end of the wiper arm, the side away from the wiper blade. Remove the cap and tighten the bolt. That should get it going again.

One front wiper not working on Outlander 2003


if you open the hood look towards the base of the windshield, you should see the linkages for the wiper arms. make sure the linkages are all in-tact and nothing fell off. if the linkages are all good, see if you can move the passenger side wiper with your hand, if it moves freely or with little resistance check the nut/bolt that hols it on at the end of the wiper arm. see if the nut/bolt is loose. tighten if needed. also you can remove the nut/bolt and check the splines on the wiper arm where it presses onto the stud and see if they are wiped out.

Front windshield wipers stall or work very intermittantly when on


It is likely that where the wiper arm is attached to the linkage  it is either loose or stripped.
