Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. there is only one motor that controls both wiper arms. if only one is working then a few things may have happened. 1. the nut that holds the arm to its greared drive came loose. 2. the geared drive is stripped. 3. the linkage for that arm came apart.

the one that doesn't move moves freely by hand
Expert:  david craig replied 8 months ago.

you will need to pull the arm off and see what happened.

I see you viewed this and this is still showing as an open question due to no positive (3 stars or more) rating.

Were you not pleased with my service to you or is there a rating issue? Please let me know if you still need assistance with this, if there is a rating issue, and/or you need more time to respond.

I like to make sure all my customers are satisfied since you did pay a deposit for me to assist you, whether I’m paid by a positive rating feedback or not.

We can continue where we left off or start over if needed. Also, if you need diagrams, instructions, etc please don’t hesitate to ask.
