    Passenger side winshield wiper doesnt work but driver's side does. Hadn't used for half a year or longer.

    Where should I start? the assembly for both wipers must all be run by one fuse so maybe part of the assembly? Can the assembly be fixed if an individual part has worn or often will I just need to replace the whole assembly if there is an issue?

    Thanks for your experience and insight

    maybe not connected properly, or stripped. you should be able to get parts. take the arm off and see if the serrated hub is turning

    if not, then you'll have to dive in below to see if the linkage is broken or disengaged
