UPDATE: What causes one windshield wiper to not work?
Well my son FINALLY took the Versa to a dealer near the base where he is stationed at, well rather his wife did it, and seems alll it was was a loose screw ikn the tramission arm that connects the passenger side wiper to the motor. The man at the dealer raised the hood, saw what was wrong, tightened it up (and added lock tight to it), closed the hood, and told my daughter in law that is was fixed at no charge. As the technician stated, if Nisson could not do a 2 minute job for free for our men and women in service then something is wrong with management. SO if your passenger side wiper acts up and either quits or acts sluggish, take a look at where the passenger wiper transmission arm connects to the driver side and see if the scre/nut is loose.
My son owns a 08 Nissan Versa S that he bought new in 08. He is in the USAf and called me tonight with a question as to a problem with his windshield wipe system on the Versa. His passenger side wiper is not working while his drivers side is. he stated that he could raise the passsenger side wiper to the up position and it would go back down under power but will not come back up all the while his drivers side wiper is working fine. Has anyone got any ideas as to what the problem is and has anyone else ran across this problem on the Versas? IMHO it is the control arm to the passenger side; either the arm itsel, plastic washers or fittings in the arm connections if any, or a loose nut on either the moter or the wiper where the arm connects to them. Am I on the right track? I know it should not be the motor BUT being not that up on Versas, could it be the motor itself? Is there any special tools he needs to work on it?
I appreciate ANY help in this issue. He has to work on it when he can in between time on duty helping to keep us all safe. I served and know how little time he has to do work on his auto so any help is greatly appreciated in finding a solution to this problem.
