Consumer stated while driving with the windshield wipers in use, they all of a sudden sped up suddenly to maximum speed, however they did not clear enough water away, after running at high speed for about 10 seconds, the drivers side wiper arm moved up and became tangled with the other arm near the middle, in which both arms were then inoperative, the drivers side arm was loose and it could move easily up and down the windshield, after the repair was made consumer found the nut which holds the drivers side wiper arm to the drive shaft had nothing to lock it in place, consumer believes that the nut could become loose again, which would cause the wiper arm to be inoperative.
