Ok.... SOooo as you guys know, the weather has been.... Wierd lately. Well i went to go and turn my wipers on and only the driver side one worked. The passanger one just, how should i put it? Wiggled slightly back and forth, you can hear it work but thats all it does.... So I was wondering. Do i need to get a new one or is it just a simple fix?

TAKE THE ACORN NUT OFF THE ARM. REMOVE THE ARM AND INSPECT THE "TEETH" ON BOTH THE ARM AND THE SHAFT. IF ONE OR BOTH ARE STRIPPED THEN IF/THEY NEED TO BE REPLACED. IF THEY BOTH LOOK FINE THE ACORN NUT MAY HAVE COME LOOSE SO ITS NOT HOLDING THE ARM DOWN ON THE SHAFT.

Windshield wipers are those things that really piss you off during the winter and spring seasons.

If the splines are stripped and you need a wiper arm I think I have one to fit your car.
