As you say the other one moves a bit the linkage appears to be connected, check the nut for tightness on the arm that wont move, they sometimes come loose during frosty periods when the wipers are stuck to the screen.

Windshild wipper nissan altima

Most probable cause is a nut which is right under the plastic cover at the base of the wiper arm. It may have come loose. It usually is a 12 or 14 mm. You can carefully lift from the bottom end of the wiper, the plastic cover and it will come off. There you will find the nut. Make sure the engine is off and the wiper switch was in the off position before you shut the motor off. Tighten the nut. You will see the base of the arm tilt a little downward as it seats. Snug it up tight (with one hand using a standard length wrench like Craftsman). Try the wiper. Odds are it will work. If it doesn't, the problem is with the wiper transmission which is below the grille you see at the base of the windshield. That repair should be left to a professional.

It might be either switch itself or wiper relay.
Ufortunatly I don't know location of the relay.
You can actually find relay by noise , put the switch on intermittent position and see where the cliking coming from.

How do I access the windshield wiper assembly?

You have to remove the wiper arms by prying off the black platic piece over the nut. Remove the nut and the wiper arms. There should be 5 places on the black plastic piece that runs the length of the windshield. Remove 4 of them by prying them out. The one is the middle is a screw. Pull away the plastic piece and you should have access to the mechanism below. I think you need to replace the linkage if it has fallen off.

I have a 1995 Mercedes C280 and the windshield wiper works fine for about 10 minutes and then it goes very slow as if it is hanging up in the middle of the wipe of the windshield? What do I do to fix it?

You need to remove the cover at the base of the blade and oil or grease the mecanism that makes the wiper move up and down and it moves across the windshield. It is dried out and sticking.
