Question about 2001 Nissan Altima
Take off both of the wiper arms and try to use wipers if they are moving you didn't install the arms correctly. If thats the case with the arms off and the wipers running turn them off with the wiper switch and wait for them to "park", then tun off the ignition and reinstall the arms in their proper location. Also when the linkage falls off you should replace it with a new one. It is a ball and socket fitting and when it fails it spreads the plastic socket and loosens it up. It is also reccommended when you are inside there you should always replace the linkages in pairs and also check the pivots (the knurled studs that the wiper arms bolt to) for play and if necessary replace these as well. Good luck.

You'll need to remove the cowling between the windshield and the hood. The wipers will have to be removed. You can see the screws thru the grill in the cowlling
