: Winsheild wipers out of sync

01-28-04, 04:50 PM
I turned on my wipers this morning and there was ice on my winsheild, and i think it messed the passenger side one up. When I turn them on, the drivers side will move regular but the passenger side will move just barely and then not move at all sometimes. I can move the passenger one by hand and the drivers side will stay still. Can somebody please help?

usually there is a bar connecting the two wipers. It probably popped off. The motor is attached to the drivers side, then there is another bar from the drivers side wiper to the passenger side wiper.

Either that or its the nut at the base of the wiper arm. Usually under a cover.

The hole at the base of the arm, where it goes onto the pivot shaft may be stripped. Take the arm off and check it and the pivot shaft to see if any of the splines are left.
