With the arms off you will see the mechanism moving back and to if you switch the wipers on and all is OK. If not, then the motor/linkage is faulty. If Ok replace the arms and just "nip up" the retaining nut. The arms seat on serrated spindles and if the soft metal of the arms becomes damaged they do not grip and consequently are useless. In this cold weather the blades get stuck to the windscreen and can cause this if loose.

Either the wiper arms are loose or stripped on the pivots or the wiper linkage is broken. Try tightening the arm to pivot bolt. If that doesn't work, remove the plastic cowling and examine the linkage. You can buy new linkage for it.

i`m not sure what you mean by it not working properly i assume that you mean it goes back and forth like the passenger side, but it doesn`t clean the window and you put the blade on the arm correctly then the wiper may be damaged and you will have to replace the wiper blade.check and compare the installation of the driver`s side to the passenger side wiper and correct the installation of the blade

The drivers side windshield wiper arm stopped working although the passenger side wiper is still working. What would be the easiest way to fix it? Should I even bother checking the fuse before the...


65% sure it could the linkage and not a fuse promblem since the other passenger wiper is still working which would have to say the wiper motor is still working, 40 % could be that the linkage is intact and you have a worn out driver side wiper arm bearing..., what you want to check out before the linkage is the gear bearing that holds the wiper arms. You take the rubber thing that cover the bolt on the wiper arm and see if the bolt is loose and if not, unscrew the bolt and see if the tooth gears on the bolt and the wiper arm is worn/dull, if it is.... that can be the promblem.

One wiper works fine the other barely moves


Pop the cap up at the base of your wiper,where it attaches to the car.I believe you will find the nut is loose or the shaft of the wiper motor is stripped where the wiper slides onto shaft

Hyndai Elantra - 2003 - Passenger side wiper wont go.


I have worked on other wipers, but haven't looked specifically at the Elantra. My guess is that there may be a bolt loose in the linkage between the wiper arms. The motor seems to be working fine, so it is possibly in the linkage between the wiper arms. I think that it can be fixed fairly quickly if this is the issue.

Windshield wiper


Check to see if the wiper motor moves the passenger side. If so, You may need to tighten the nut that connects the arm to the motor. Mine was stripped out because or snow & ice. So, I went to home depot and found a lock washer to fit.
Presto.... Nick from DE
