My passenger side wiper arm does not work, I have the service manual and it says to pop off the cap that exposes the nut and tighten that up however when I popped it off it had another cap, kind of looks like a milk carten cap, instead of a bolt, I figure the nut is underneath that cap but, its stuck, I tried everything and it will not budge. Know of any products or tools I can use to un stick it?

The other cap shouldn't be there. It sounds like someone had problems before and wedged something over the shaft so it would work. Are you able to tell if there is a nut under the cap?

The ridged cap I am speaking of is actually located underneath both of the wiper arm caps. I believe they are supposed to pop off with the actual caps themselves. I cannot see any bolts underneath.

Honestly, the cap that I'm refering to is black and looks like part of the arm. It is hinged on one side and when opened, it should expose a nut that holds the arm in place.

I know exactly what your talking about, when I lift the cap that is hinged to the arm the only thing it exposes is a cap that has groves on it and and x in the middle, I have tried to unscrew the other caps and they do not budge, I have also looked in the repair manual and owners manual to see if they mention anything about them and they don't.

That is interesting. I have never see one like that. I will do further research to see if I can find something different and let you know what I find. Can you take a picture of it and upload it for me to see?
