The driver's side windshield wiper stopped moving while the passenger side was still working. The splines in the driver's side arm were stripped. I tried to find a replacement arm, but GM has discontinued the part & no aftermarket suppliers have one avaialble. Seems wrong to have a 12 year old car that can not be driven in the rain or snow. GM needs to keep making parts or release the patent & let other companies make them.
