Unless there's something wrong with the linkages; which I can't imagine...
It almost has to be the nut is loose on the passenger side.

Make sure the wipers are off and the igition is off.
According to what you say, the driver's wiper is in the correct "parked" position.
On the passenger side wiper arm, pop off the plastic cover at the pivot point of the arm.
Underneath, there is a nut. Loosen the nut a little. Wiggle the arm while pushing the arm down. Hold arm in place and tighten the nut. Replace cover.

If that doesn't take care of it, you may have to remove the arm completely and check the tapered spline underneath. Either the arm or the post spline may be stripped. Maybe try a new arm, as the post will be more difficult to replace.

My windshield Wiper on driver side quit working before it even got too cold out. I have a 1994 Plymouth Voyager Sport SE and don't know how to fix this poblem. Any idea what it could be or what


Either the linkage is stripped out or broke. I would look at the spindle that the blade attaches to. On the underside of it is a linkage that must have something wrong with it. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

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.

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.

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".

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 !

Passenger windshield wiper quit working


if the passanger wiper stopped working AND the drivers side is still working...one of two problems. the easiest is to pop off the black cap at the base of the wiper arm, under it you will find a nut. check to see the nut is tight. turn the wipers on and observe the post that the nut is on, if it is turning, then the nut needs to be tightened or the spline on the post or wiper arm is stripped. If the post is not turning, then most likely an arm on your wiper assembly has come off, remove the wiper arms remove the black plastic cowl and you will find the wiper arm assembly.
good luck. HTH

1998 Grand Prix Windshield wiper problem passenger side wiper acts erractically


I assume that the drivers side is working perfectly and only the passanger side has a shorteded erattic sweep . It will be either a loose locking nut on the wiper arm (on spindle) or unusually a faulty crank arm (weld) on the underside of the wiper spindle . Good luck

no you will have to remove the wiper cowl , remove the wiper arms and any exposed clips holding the cowl down , sometime ford used Blind clips so it may feel attached after you remove any exposed screws . BE careful around the windshield !!!
