windshield wiper problem

Asked by Jul 18, 2014 at 02:34 PM about the 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier Base Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The passenger side windshield wiper is out of synch, when it feels like working at all; sometimes, just moves about an inch and then drops.  i've checked the Haynes manual for troubleshooting but can't seem to find anything.  If anyone has any experience or guidance about this issue i'd be most appreciative.

Sounds like you need a new wiper transmission. Or the wiper arm is loose on the shaft. HTH. -Jim
