You are watching: Passenger side windshield wiper not working


I in reality forgot around his until I drove home in the snow tonight.My windsheild wiper ~ above the passenger side only stopped working during a light snow. Driver next still works perfectly other than the reality that the rain sensor is not obtaining wiped. Once I opened up the fuse panel it does not specify a windshield wiper fuse at every in the driver compartment fuse panel. I discovered the rain sensing fuse an around 39 others yet not a Windshield wipers fuse. Is the in the ago fuse panel? (Too cold and also dark out there for me to dig). Ns looked at it closely and it does not show up to be mechanically linkage in between the 2 wipers. There does show up to be 2 wiring harnesses. Is there a different motor because that each side? are they fused separatley or perform they have actually circuit breaker?Any concepts all?

“May” it is in wiper rod/motor crank attachment. Afternoon email resolve I will send accuse to inspect assembly.
well, i just had actually the specific same thing take place to me a couple weeks back. Driver side works, passenger doesnt. Very an easy fix ( if the is the same trouble as mine ).You just have to tighten the seed of the"s probably loose


They room mechanically attached. Over there is a linkage, also called transmission. I would very first check the attachments nut as NiwPix mentioned. Its not a terribly high value part. It might be a an excellent time to gain a subsciption come, because that under $30 per year, it has actually a riches of information.

Yep, probably simply a loosened nut. Remove the nut, and remove the wiper arm to have a look at the splined mating surfaces.....just come make sure they didn"t get stripped. If OK, re-assemble and use part blue loctite top top the threads....or it will certainly most most likely loosen up again.

I love this group ... Turned on the wipers today and - presto - the passenger"s side wouldn"t work! Thought, "here us go again - another $100." to be just about to climb the end the living room home window on come the ledge when another thought hit, "research this ~ above" Learned about the loose nut (and that, think it or not, was the problem), offered it a turn and we"re back in business!., you saved my life ...

Thanks because that the reminder that the infection controls BOTH arms. The stealership was talking about a $300 part...but since it"s the day prior to Thanksgiving and in the afternoon, lock didn"t have actually the part.Just a loose nut so far. Don"t have any locktite therefore I used a lock washer under the nut. Appears to be working simply fine.

Got the same difficulty my passenger side wiper go out through a loud thump at complete speed in a rain storm. I"ll shot and watch if it is the loose nut stated above. Thanks!
Had the exact same experience x2. I think it happens as soon as the wiper arm gets trapped in the "home" place by ice and also you turn on the wipers. I put a lock washer on that the second time it loosened up.Now i will have actually to add "check R wiper spindle nut" to my winter inspect list and also I always have a 6in. Crescent wrench in the boot.

Awesome post. It to be the loosened nut top top the C350 together well. I removed the loose nut (which it to be the only one I might remove by hand), removed the plastic peak cap native the nut, cleaned the nut with a solvent, used blue locktite, re-installed the nut, put the plastic cap earlier on, and it is earlier in business. Say thanks to you for taking the time to post. Easy settle thanks to the posts.
Wiper prob - rocks!
Passenger next wiper flopped and died in hefty rain in ~ night in downtown Boston. Daylight inspection suggested massive mining operation required to obtain at motor(s?). 3 clicks top top pointed to a loosened nut and Locktite! trouble solved; expedition to dealer avoided.07 E350 wagon
Thanks a ton guys. Very same thing taken place to my GL-550 (I recognize it"s not a sedan) throughout heavy snow and ice construct up ~ above the passenger side of the window. That was not a lot of ice, and only top top the very side of the windshield - other a German vehicle (have you seen the Alps in winter!) should quickly handle. Still you conserved me a ton of time heading come a dealer, and also as I had Loctite top top hand this was a 5 mins fix.
This just happened to me when doing 65 mph ~ above the NJ turnpike in pouring rain. I"m lucky ns didn"t crash when trying to acquire to the shoulder that a busy highway at night not being maybe to see anything the end the windshield. It was the cursed nut top top the transmission side of the passenger wiper arm.THANK you FORUMI can"t think this is quiet an issue.
“May” it is in wiper rod/motor crank attachment. Pm email attend to I will send instructions to check assembly.
