So today ok your gonna laugh. Today at the stop light. The wipers were working fine but it was raining hard. So I put the wipers on high. Suddenly there was a clunk, the right wiper blade flopped over into the left one they slammed together and that wiper blade launched into the car next to me front seat. He thought someone shot him when it landed. I grabbed it and put the blades back on. The right wiper blade seem stripped out. I can grab it and hold it and it will not move but If i let it go it will spin with the other blade. Are there gears stripped out? how do i fix this? I have found nothing on the web and and look here found 41 references but nothing specific. Help its snowing and i cant drive with one blade working. :?:

Was it just the blade or the whole wiper arm that came off? More that likely you will need a new wiper transmission (linkage under the cowl) if the splines for the arm are stripped. If not, you can try to grease the bushing on the transmission to see if that frees it up.

it the gear in the right side of the wiper. The conneciton to the transmission is just fine. The wiper blade on the left side came off because the right side stopped working and fell into the left wiper bending the blade and shooting it off the truck. This the gear the right wiper sits on.. something is broke in it. How do I get the part and what is it called?

Unless the whole wiper ARM came off, take the cap off the bottom of the wiper arm and try tightening the nut. Mine came loose today when I turned the wipers on with ice on the windshield.

If the arm came right off with the stud, you need a new linkage assembly.
