    Today the passenger windshield wiper stopped working.

    We looked at it, and when you turn the wipers on, the motor spins but it doesn't pull the wiper up It slips on it.

    Not sure where to start.

    Or how to get the whole windshield wiper assembly off.

    Any ideas ?

    pop the little cap off of the wiper shaft and see if the arm is spinning on the shaft. if it is remove the wiper, clean the splines on the wiper transmission and reassemble. make sure its tight, its a tapered fit.

    Hey everyone, sorry it took me so long to respond.

    We fixed the wiper.

    We took the cap off and removed the nut on the wiper, and then put it back on and made sure it was tight. It works great now !

    Thanks everyone for you help !
