Q: Passenger's side windshield wiper not working

asked by on

The passenger's side windshield wiper does not work. The driver's side windshield wiper does work.

The windshield wiper motor linkage may have come off of the wiper transmission. The front cowl would need to be removed for access to check the linkage. I recommend having a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect your windshield wiper system to identify and quote the repairs needed.
