You can get the bushings that connect the motor to the wiper arm-they snap onto the rods- cheers Denny

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.

2003 cavalier only one wiper works

If one works the motor is ok. The issue is morre than likley the linkage under the crowel below the windsheild. it has com apart or the wiper transmission is bad. Try accessing that arrea to get a look. you will probably see the control arm just lying on the bottom, possably along with the nut that fell off the back of the transmission.

2003 Chevy Cavalier - Driver side wiper doesn't work

Likely broke the nylon bushing cap on the left side wiper transmission assembly. Best as I can tell, the cap is not replaceable so replacement of the assembly is required. These are available new AC Delco p/n 19120840 about $75, or on ebay used for about $35. ACDelco 19120840 Windshield Washer Transmission Kit. Goold luck, mine's broke too!

Windshield wiper driver's side went limp wind

THe wind doesn't just push the power arm off, it must be broken and will need be replaced, You need to check if the actuall bracket that holds the arm is broken as well. It has teeth on it which when the arm is put on it lock in place with a clip

Driver side wiper not working!

its a small, white plastic "nut" on the wiper transmission arm- find one in a junkyard-snap it in and you can solve it for 2 bucks-takes about 10 minutes to do. Cant get the part separately without buying the entire transmission, which you dont want to do- common problem with cavaliers and sunfires of this year.

03 cavalier wiper on driver side is out is it fuse or motor?

you need to remove both the wiper arms. Take off the rain seal from under the windshield. remove the cover underneath you will find the rod has worn and dropped off you must get a complete new mechanism. Or if you cant afford to do that re attatch the rod to the buckle pin on the wiper arm and use some insulation tape to make a temporary repair till you can get a new one.
