Sounds like the linkage is broken. You will need to remove the wiper arm and the cowl to get to it.....http://www.nissanforums.com/b14-95-99- chassis/1727-wiper-arm-removal.html

Thanks Tom! The cap where the arm attaches to the arm easily pushed off with the aid of flathead screwdriver, revealing 12mm nut that was loose. Postioned wiper arm and tightened nut and slid cap back on and wiper now works! Simple and saved me a $50+ service call to dealer.
