Cool Wiper issues

Please help.. Left work this morning it was sub zero temps and some residual ice on window. Turned on wipers the initially worked then driver side wiper became stuck under the other. So I got out to fix sprayed fluid and they stuck a bit and worked. Now today pass works but driver side doesn't.. When I checked it is loose if that makes sense lol I'm no car girl. Pass one is straight and moves as one that works driver one move with no resistance ... its Christmas and kiddos take all my funds spoon if you can give me cheap fix ideas that would be awesome.. Thanks so much.. Minnesota girl needs her wipers

Default Re: Wiper issues

pop the little round center plastic cap out where the wiper arm bolts to the car. you'll see a nut under there. move the wiper arm back and forth with your hand and look to see what the nut and the shaft in the center of it do. if they stay stationary, you'll just need to tighten it. this is the likeliest scenario. if the nut and shaft move with the wiper arm it'll be more difficult to fix, but not too bad. we can type you through it.

let us know what you find (:

If the wiper arm is loose on the stud,I would really recommend getting it tightened ASAP,because it could strip out the little grooves on the stud,and the wiper arm......Possibly causing one,or both to need replacing.
