Default Wipers

Today driving in the rain ,I had my wipers on high and they just went for a sh$T .The drivers side would go all over the place even past the window hanging over drivers side window.Passenger still works but rode over driver wiper and flipped upside down and I think is ruined even though it works ok.Drivers side finally stayed in its home position and I used passenger window to see out of as it was pouring, pretty scary on the hiway.Anyways did a search all I could find was to make sure the nut is tight on the wiper arm.Anything else to look at.

In vitually every case, tightening that nut will solve the problem. If not, then the linkages will have to be checked. Start with tightening that nut. If it doesn't fix it, we'll go from there.

Wiper nut had to be tightened, and works fine now ,I dont think I will try it on full wiper speed though.One of my washer fluid squirt nozzles broke on the wiper, should be able to buy this part , correct.It just clips on.
