Regarding a 2001 Subie outback. In intermittent and low speed my wipers travel the proper distance while on the highest setting the drivers side blade travels past the windshield. Any thoughts?

this issue is commonly caused by worn out bushings in the wiper linkage. They are fairly easy to replace just pop out the damaged one and match it up with a new one and pop it back in.

My right windshield wiper on my 1998 isuzu rodeo is not working, however, the driver's side is working? also, do both wipers share the same motor?

Yes, there is linkage that connects the two wipers. A nylon ball and socket joint connects the two, it wears out and can pop apart. By removing the black plastic grate at the edge of the hood the linkage can be accessed and popped back together. This may last for quite a while if high speed and snow slop is avoided. New parts can come from dealer or junk yard.

Passenger windshield wiper does not work, driver side does work. wiper blade frame or wiper motor?

Most likely it is the linkage between the driver and passenger blade arms. The easiest way to find out is to remove the cowling and should see the wiper motor, the motor arm that links to the driver arm and the linkage between the driver arm and passenger arm...this is held together by a plastic clip and that clip is most likely going to be broken when you's fairly easy to replace.

My passenger side windshield wiper does not work, but my drivers side one does? How can I fix that? I have a 2001 Jetta

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.

97 nissan sentra windshield wiper linkage arm disconnected

Most likely you will have to replace the wiper linkage from the center pivot to the left or drivers-side wiper pivot. The plastic piece in the linkage gets brittle over time and breaks down. To save a hassle in the future, replace both linkages. It should be under $20.00 for parts.
