passenger side wiper does not work

I turned on my wipers the other day to clear some snow off the winshield and only the driver sside wiper worked. I assume there is a connecting rod that may have broken between the drivers side and passenger side wipers. If so is this an easy fix or is a visit to the stealer needed. I can wipe the passenger side wiper freely across the windshield with my hand.

hmm could be that the arm ball joint popped out of the socket. Remove the cabin filter on the passengers side under the hood, it is held in by a clip at the front and the air outlet shroud is held on by plastic clips. you will be able to see if the ball joint is out of the socket. Pop it back in. If the ball joint is loose in the socket just pinch the socket slightly with a pair of pliers but not too much. Fill the socket with grease.
