Your wiper arm is worn out. You need to buy a new one. Make sure you get a Volvo OEM replacement as the after market ones are junk. The springs wear out after a while resulting in loss of contact with the windshield.
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
At the base of the wiper arm, there should be a cover.
Pop up that cover. Underneath that cover should be a nut. Tighten the nut. Careful not to overtighten!
That retaining nut has become loose.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!
While the wipers are in the parked state, just loosen off (or remove) the wiper arm from the drive spigot and re-position the driverside wiper arm to the correct position.
Re-tighten arm drive mount and all should be well.
Sounds like you need two new wiper motors. I beliveve the gearing inside the motors are worn out and now theres alot of play in them. Try wiggling the wipers with you hands and see if you can feel any up or down / side to side movement.
Took the car to a local garage and the tech found a loose connecting rod on the gear box of the windshield wipers.
The tech was very nice and repaired the wipers and didn't charge for the repair.
The tech has made a young lady very happy and has gotten him a new customer for her future auto repairs.
This is so refreshing to find a auto repair shop that shows good will and does not take advantage of a customer.
