Hyundai started using plastic washers to hold down wiper arms. This is to prevent damage to the wiper transmission in cases where the wipers are either frozen to the windshield or trying to push too much snow/ice. To remove the wiper arm, you will need to locate the washer and remove it first. Chances are the washer will be the only part you need to replace.

One windshield wiper not working


Maybe the nut that hold the wiper to the linkage is either loose or stripped? The linkage itself is bad?

I think your wiper motor is fine because the passenger side works and uses the same motor to move the wipers.

Passenger Side Windshield Wiper Broken


Hi Jill,
The first thing to check is a 13mm nut that holds the wiper arm in place.See if you can move the wiper arm freely back and forth.There is a nut at the base of that wiper arm,Lift up a cover that is hiding the nut. If it comes loose from being froze from ice or snow. Put the wiper in its rest position and tighten the nut back up.

Windshield wipers don't move, but hear motor running


check the nuts on the wiper arms and make sure they are tight. If the nuts are tight then a linkage on the wiper transmission probably came loose or broke. You'll have to pull some cowling off to access it.

Motor that moves the windshield wiper on the drivers side of our 2000 Ponitica Montana stopped working, I have been told that this part will cost me 300.00 dollars. I can not afford that, can you help me?


If the wiper on the passengers side is working normally and only the drivers side is not working.Then it is not the motor because there is only one motor and it works both sides.What you need to do is remove the drivers side wiper and clean the splines on the wiper transmission and reinstall the wiper and tighten it down.The hardest part is usually getting the wiper off.But if yours is not moving then it should come right off.All you need is a 13mmwrench or socket to remove the nut that holds the wiper on.You can do this yourself and it will cost nothing.The usual problem is they just come loose.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Trying to find windshield wiper motor. Where is it


remove wiper arm and check splines on wiper motor or splines on wiper arm for damage if damaged replace. Sometimes arms are just installed with a nut and this nut over time becomes loose check tightness.
