Windshield wiper wont work

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My daughter has an 01 Pontiac Grand Prix. The driver side windshield wiper operates, but the passenger side does not. Does that sound like a bad motor?

Sounds like a bad wiper transmission (linkage). HTH. -Jim

There is only one motor that drives both wipers. As JS said, it is likely to be the linkage that joins the two arms.

It's more likely to be the wiper arm slipping on the splined shaft that it mounts on. Try tightening the nut that holds it down
