Windshield Wiper Issue HELP!

2008 Mazda 3

Left windshield wiper just sort of flops around. I tighten the cap and it will be fine for about 4-5 back and forth motions, but then it just goes back to flopping around again.

I bought a new arm for it thinking its stripped from the gear which creates the motion, but that did not work.

Any ideas?

THANKS!

Sounds like the wiper linkage is messed up.

A two jaw puller would be the only tool for the job but rarely do you need one. Just grab the arm and keep working it up and down by hand, they usually come right off.
